LED Lighting – Deveraux has installed and/or retrofitted over 2500 LED bulbs and fixtures over the past two years. With reduced electrical consumption per fixture, particularly in corridors where lights are often on for 24 hours per day, we have been able to save approximately 1,175,000 kWh per year. This equates to the carbon offset of 858 tons of CO2 and the planting of 14,300 trees or taking 179 cars off the road annually.
Mechanical Equipment Efficiency – Deveraux has a preventative maintenance program that ensures that all mechanical systems that consume either gas or electricity are well maintained and operating at their maximum efficiency. From boilers to make up air units, each piece of equipment has scheduled maintenance that will help ensure they are not consuming more energy than necessary.
