TEC Partners with Passive Logic on DOE-funded Efficiency Retrofit for South El Monte

Innovative technology package to include autonomous building controls for HVAC and energy-efficiency upgrades for lighting and water heaters

The Energy Coalition, in partnership with Passive Logic, has been selected for a Department of Energy (DOE) grant to bring innovative efficiency technologies to the City of South El Monte. The City of South El Monte was one of just seven locations selected nationwide for the Building Technologies Proving Ground – Public Sector Field Validation Funding Opportunity.

After retrofit opportunities were identified through SoCalREN Public Agency Programs (a program implemented by TEC), TEC helped the City to obtain DOE funding and will assist with managing the project through the SoCalREN Metered Savings Program.

The project includes autonomous building controls for HVAC and energy-efficiency upgrades for lighting and water heaters, and when installed, it will provide 10% to 30% energy savings. Not only will these energy savings help the City of South El Monte conserve public funds, but the project will also demonstrate how new technologies and operational improvements perform in the real world.
