MILWAUKEE - Telkonet Inc. announced that its Telkonet SmartEnergy™ (TSE) energy management system has been selected for installation in over 3,000 units of an East Coast military base’s housing. The TSE system is designed to improve energy efficiency by adjusting and maintaining each room’s temperature based on occupancy, using a combination of occupancy sensors and packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) controllers. Telkonet said it was selected for this contract because of the energy savings achievable with its SS1107 equipment line, a versatile system for older PTAC units.

“This is a strategic win in our efforts to demonstrate SmartEnergy efficiency savings in military housing,” said Jeffrey Sobieski, COO of Telkonet. “With over 3,000 units, this will be our largest military installation to date. Winning a place in this extensive energy efficiency project further enhances Telkonet’s position as a leader in energy management and highlights the opportunities for SmartEnergy systems specifically within the government and military markets.”

The $1.2 million TSE contract is part of an energy efficiency project coordinated by a large energy services company (ESCO), encompassing military bases across the East Coast. During this nine month project, more than 3,000 housing units in over 30 different buildings will be installed with Telkonet SmartEnergy equipment, including SS1107 PTAC controllers and hardwired SS2000 occupancy sensors.

Utilizing the company’s patented Recovery Time™ technology, TSE is said to eliminate wasteful heating and cooling of vacant rooms without compromising an occupant’s comfort. In rooms with PTACs, the SS1107 Energy Management Controller maintains the occupant’s preferred temperature setting while the room is occupied. When vacant, the SS1107 works with the PTAC unit to adjust the temperature to a new energy-efficient setting. The new temperature setting is maintained until the occupant re-enters the room, at which time the SS1107 allows the PTAC to return to the occupant’s original temperature setting within a predetermined recovery time.
