Press Release (ePRNews.com) - San Jose, CA - Feb 02, 2017 - On September 30, 2016 in Milpitas, CA Comfort International, Inc. (CI) was recognized for its energy savings project for TDK’s 112,000 square foot clean room facility, saving TDK over $515,000 per year in annual energy costs. The project represents the largest annual savings in the Silicon Valley for Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) in 2016. Comfort International’s project also facilitated a rebate check of $470,022 to TDK from PG&E.
Comfort International founder and CEO, Alan Pong remarked, “This project challenged us as this is our second phase of energy savings and I am proud that we found over $515,000 of annual savings with a short less than 2 year ROI. This brings the total annual savings for TDK/Headway to well over 1.5 million dollars annually all under a 2 year ROI.”
The project was performed without disrupting TDK’s production, while maintaining the tight tolerances of +/- one degree and less than 2% humidity required by the class 100 facility. The project achieved a guaranteed return on investment for TDK in less than 2 years.
Comfort International is able to engineer solutions with very short returns on investment (ROI) through a turnkey process. Most projects achieve a 50% return on investment. Energy savings of 40% or more are standard and can be guaranteed at the utility meter. In achieving such results, Mr. Pong credits his company’s comprehensive efficient energy management systems (EEMS) study process. He adds, “I look forward to working with other PG&E customers to help them achieve their energy management goals and reduce their costs.”
