Venstar’s Surveyor Saves Retail Chains Millions in Energy Costs

After early deployments that saved AutoZone, Family Dollar and other chains more than $131 million in energy costs, Venstar Inc. broadly went to market today with its Surveyor Energy Management System — a package designed for small-box retail chains.

The system enables companies to manage the energy used for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting, and electrical and mechanical equipment at multiple locations on and off site using a PC, laptop or smart phone app.

The energy management system works this way: Sensors are installed on HVAC, lighting panels and other equipment that consume electricity. The sensors communicate with the Surveyor system via the Internet to provide data on energy use, and facilities manager can tap into the system, at their desks or remotely, to set usage parameters, monitor consumption and more.

The Surveyor system can be adopted in a retrofit or in new construction. For example, HVAC manufacturers York and Carrier, offer Surveyor controls as a factory-installed option.
