AT&T, the largest provider of fixed telephone service in the United States, was committed to reducing its carbon footprint by 20 percent by 2020. In 2013, the company's energy team decided to optimize the energy performance across 1,000 of their largest energy-consuming sites and 500 of their retail sites. The challenge was to find an intelligent way to lower energy consumption using advanced technology. The company was looking for a solution that could be integrated into their existing infrastructure and could be expanded to other areas of facilities control, such as HVAC and building security in the future.
About The Customer
AT&T Inc. is an American multinational telecommunications corporation and is the largest provider of fixed telephone service in the United States. The company also provides mobile telephone services and broadband subscription television services. AT&T is committed to being socially responsible and has integrated this commitment into virtually everything they do. The company has an ambitious policy to reduce its carbon footprint by 20 percent by 2020 and is constantly looking for ways to optimize its energy performance across its sites.
Enlighted, a provider of advanced sensor systems, proposed an aggressive schedule of retrofitting a select set of AT&T properties. The plan was to replace all fluorescent light fixtures with new energy-saving LED lighting equipped with Enlighted’s advanced lighting control system. The retrofit initially focused on 240 properties or 20 million square feet of AT&T’s facilities. The overall goal was to retrofit all 120 million square feet of AT&T’s real estate. To help AT&T make the decision to move ahead with the project, Enlighted recommended its GEO service as a way to manage and maintain the system. The GEO program also allowed AT&T to recognize immediate energy savings from the project while paying for the installation through energy savings over time.
