Hyatt Cuts Operation Costs with Energy Management System
Hyatt Place Los Angeles/El Segundo of El Segundo, CA, will be installed with a fully networked EcoSmart energy management solution from Telkonet, Inc. In partnership with South Carolina-based hospitality management firm and developer OTO Development, the 143-room Hyatt Place will install EcoInsight intelligent thermostats to reduce HVAC equipment runtime to conserve energy use when guestrooms are unoccupied. EcoSmart traditionally provides energy savings of 20% to 40% and will provide even greater energy savings when integrated with the hotel’s Property Management System.
Centralized control of the energy management system allows staff to be more efficient in managing and operating the property. The Hyatt Place El Segundo will be able to track HVAC efficiency, monitor energy savings, and make changes to thermostat settings from any web-connected device. If an in-room HVAC unit begins to run excessively, the EcoCentral web interface can alert appropriate personnel to address the issue before guest comfort is impacted.
