Florida Power & Light Company, with the help of local contractors, provided an energy makeover to the Central Brevard Humane Society (CBHS) in Cocoa today. As part of FPL's non-profit energy efficiency program, the CBHS received free efficiency upgrades that are expected to save the organization at least $2,200 annually on its electric bill.
FPL energy experts and local contractors installed a new air conditioning unit, conducted air conditioning duct work, and installed energy-efficient lighting to help save energy and money. FPL's energy experts also provided CBHS with energy-efficiency improvement tips to make it easier for the organization to manage its monthly energy usage.
"As Brevard County’s oldest established animal welfare organization, the CBHS is an important part of our community and providing them with the resources to be more energy-efficient is a great accomplishment,” Cocoa Deputy Mayor Don Boisvert said. “Our partnership with FPL helps give organizations like ours the tools and information they need to save money and continue making a positive impact in the community.”
“Every dollar the CBHS can save on its energy bill is a dollar it can use to provide quality care to Brevard’s abandoned animals,” said Sandy Sanderson, FPL’s external affairs manager. "Our energy makeover team is helping to make the lowest electric bill in the state even lower by sharing tips from FPL's energy efficiency programs and implementing easy, low-cost improvements that can save all customers even more money."
Most of these energy efficiency upgrades can be adopted by any business customer looking to make smarter energy choices. Businesses and organizations looking to better manage their energy use and save on their monthly bills can take FPL’s free Business Energy Evaluation.
