Pacific Energy to install Energy Management systems in MinneapolisPacific Energy Service & Facilities was selected by Chartres Lodging Group to install an energy management system to improve energy efficiency at the 360-room Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Minneapolis.
Pacific Energy will install the Telkonet EcoSmart guest room energy management system. This innovative system uses occupancy sensors and intelligent thermostats to adjust the temperature of a room once a guest has exited, thereby reducing energy consumption.
Pacific Energy will also integrate all guest room electronic locks into the system’s EcoCentral network, which works in tandem with the hotel’s property management system. This allows property engineers and Pacific Energy to make changes to guest room energy controls from anywhere in the world.
“Most energy use from hotels comes from heating and cooling empty rooms,” said Troy Hartmann, CEO and founder of Pacific Energy. “Installing the Telkonet system will bring considerable energy savings to the Radisson. And it’s good for the environment too.”
The Chartres Lodging Group purchased the four-star property from the Carlson travel and hotel company. The John Hardy Group will renovate it and convert it to a Radisson Blu Hotel beginning in December 2013.
Pacific Energy has a strong track record with the San Francisco-based Chartres Lodging Group – this is the 10th project it has performed for the hotel investment group since 2009. Even so, it beat out stiff competition to win this contract, because the Radisson Plaza Hotel was a flagship property for Carlson.
Pacific Energy has installed thousands of energy management systems and completed extensive renovation projects at some of the largest hotel chains in the hospitality industry, including the Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, Holiday Inn, Embassy Suites, and Doubletree Hotels.
