Officials with Advanced Telemetry say demand for the product has surged, which is why they made the agreement with the two companies. 

Pannell Mechanical and Monza Energy Systems have been named distributors of Advanced Telemetry’s EcoView Commercial remote energy-management system.

Officials with Advanced Telemetry say demand for the product has surged, which is why they made the agreement with Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Pannell and Phoenix-based Monza.

“Because both of these partners are well versed in HVAC climate-control systems -- the largest, discretionary source of resource demand -- they are particularly well suited to represent our EcoView Commercial product line,” said Gus Ezcurra, CEO of Advanced Telemetry. “Distributing EcoView Commercial allows both of these new partners to offer a cost-effective energy management solution to the many previously underserved markets with small commercial facilities, including restaurants, convenience stores, retail shops, and bank branch offices. The system also fosters closer engagement between these distributors and their customer bases, leading to far greater insight into real-time HVAC-related consumption behaviors and the performance of related mechanicals.”

As an example, Advanced Telemetry officials noted a Burger King franchise owner in Portland, Ore.-based who reduced energy use 13 percent at one restaurant and 25 percent at another using EcoView Commercial, under remote management by Advanced Telemetry’s staff. The owner now plans to install the system in all the restaurants.

“With its robust tracking and reporting capabilities, EcoView Commercial provides invaluable real-time insight into our customers’ climate control and energy consumption activities at each given location,” said Jody Romans, vice president of new distributor Monza Energy Systems.  “With this usage information and the system’s real-time control capability, we’re now well-positioned to help business owners reduce their energy consumption, utility bills and carbon footprint at one or multiple locations.”

Tim Hensley, president and CEO of Pannell Mechanical, agreed.

“Traditional energy management system options have been fairly limited and cost-prohibitive for our small business customers, while traditional programmable thermostats, which offer only on-site controls easily overridden or manipulated by unauthorized staff, are burdensome to update with the frequency needed to optimize usage,” he said. “EcoView Commercial allows our company to fill this marketplace gap by offering a best-of-breed solution that is affordable to deploy, delivers quick ROI, operates independent of a utility company, and can be remotely monitored and controlled through a Web interface by the customer, our company’s technicians, or Advanced Telemetry’s network operations center support staff.”
