For several Orlando resorts owned by a large national hotel chain, Gone Green Earth managed the implementation of high tech condensing boilers. The project included removing the existing antiquated boilers, reconfiguring the water/gas lines, replacing the recirc pumps, new exhaust venting and roof penetrations. Since some of the boilers service hot water to the guest rooms, the project had a very short cutover time requirement which was successfully achieved.
Gone Green Earth sourced and implemented multiple high efficiency water softening/ion exchange systems with remote monitoring for one of the largest resort chains in Orlando. The project included adding a 4,000 gallon exterior brine maker, overseeing the removal of 2,000 pound old softener vessels and a major plumbing retrofit. Gone Green Earth is currently supporting these systems with remote monitoring and on-site supervision.
Gone Green Earth conducted a comprehensive energy/water usage audit then selected and managed the implementation of solutions for: energy management/building automation (EMS/BMS) and chiller plant optimization system with a payback of less than 6 months; water conservation valve that reduced their water/sewer bill by over 16%; heat recovery water heating; applying and receiving rebates from their utility provider. The overall project had a payback of less than 9 months with a 5-year savings estimate of over $124,000.
Gone Green Earth created then released a comprehensive LED Request for Information (RFI) along with a custom scorecard to rank the results for one of the world’s largest international restaurant chains. The objective of the study was to create a roadmap of the top vendors and solutions so corporate restaurants and franchisees would have a list of the most qualified vendors to provide LED alternatives.
Gone Green Earth managed a project to select and implement LED retrofits for a large Tampa airport parking lot that included a video surveillance system and a complete electrical system update. Photometric renderings for all 25’pole areas were used to maximize light levels and reduce dark areas while minimizing wattages. Solutions were considered from a variety of leading manufacturers. Bi-level dimming and photo cells helped increase the electrical cost savings to over 70%.
As part of a consulting engagement for one of largest worldwide financial services firms, Gone Green Earth released a large parking garage LED retrofit Request for Proposal (RFP). The project includes converting 1000 metal halide luminaires to LEDs with wireless controls for occupancy dimming and daylight harvesting. Gone Green Earth also developed a detailed return on investment analysis along with savings metrics.
