b.good Powers up Energy Savings Solution
Healthier fast food chain implements the eMonitorTM to lower restaurant energy costs, improve profits and reduce their carbon footprint
Boston MA, July 26, 2012 - Powerhouse Dynamics, developer of the unique eMonitor resource and asset management system aimed at restaurants and other commercial operations, announced today that it has partnered with Boston-based restaurant chain b.good to implement the system.
“We are delighted to be working with a restaurant group known for using fresh local produce and providing a very high quality experience in a fast food setting”, said Martin Flusberg, Powerhouse CEO. “We look forward to helping b.good squeeze out energy inefficiencies, better manage their huge equipment portfolio, and improve overall profit margins”.
The eMonitor analyzes every electric load in a facility and delivers real-time intelligence to eliminate excessive energy spending, such as equipment operating unnecessarily during off hours. The system also remotely controls heating and cooling, leverages a unique pattern recognition capability to identify equipment-related issues before they turn into major problems, and can monitor natural gas and water usage as well as temperatures and other key variables.
“We are excited about the potential of the eMonitor” said Anthony Ackil, co-owner of b.good. “Energy for us is the ’final frontier‘ of places to look for operating efficiencies; for the first time we will not have to treat energy as an uncontrollable expense. Implementing a system like this is part of our overall commitment to green and sustainable operations. We saved money the first week we installed the system, and look forward to seeing the system yield a positive impact on our bottom line”.
