Spokane, WA— May 9, 2016— Ecova, a leading energy and sustainability management company, today announced that it has identified $2.1 billion in savings since 2013 for its commercial and industrial clients with respect to energy, water, waste and telecommunications through comprehensive resource management programs. Ecova works with more than 900 commercial and industrial multi-site companies to find opportunities to drive bottom line savings and improve efficiencies across their organization.
Ecova identifies savings in numerous resource categories, such as energy, water, waste and telecommunications. By leveraging data from utility bills, meters and energy management systems, Ecova’s teams of experts have the insight to act on savings opportunities such as catching water leaks before they become large financial or regulatory problems, reducing the number of service calls needed to manage equipment at a location, identifying billing errors, optimizing electric and gas rate programs and providing actionable insights to reduce energy and other resource consumption.
“Ecova has been a strategic supplier since 2008 and has provided Brookdale with tremendous value and insights that have helped us identify and implement cost savings measures for both water and energy across our organization,” said Jennifer Nolan, vice president of procurement strategy for Brookdale Senior Living.
