Magnolia School District knows plug load control saves money. Therefore, plug load control was included in the district’s recent performance contract. And, as a result, MSD installed 520 Bert Smart Plugs. Specifically, MSD chose Bert to control the district’s vending machines, printers, copiers, projectors, smartboards and Smart TVs.
Initially, the TVs were not part of the project. However, Bert Support analyzed the district’s standby loads and determined that the TV’s represented one of the largest overnight loads. After quantifying the potential benefit to MSD, Bert worked with the IT department to explain the additional savings opportunity. Once IT understood the numbers, they supported the addition of the TVs.
As a result of Bert’s commitment to deliver maximum energy savings, Magnolia’s annual plug load energy savings increased by 35%. MSD’s savings went from 51,875 kWh to 69,901 kWh each year.
- 31% reduction in Baseline Plug Load Energy Usage
- Annual kWh savings: 69,901 kWh
