Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan Selects EcoSmart Platform

New York City's Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan has selected Telkonet's cloud-based EcoSmart energy management platform. This 770-room, full-service hotel located on Broadway in Times Square is one of New York's leading and most successful hotels.

The Crowne Plaza Times Square selected PAC Consultants to deploy Telkonet's EcoSmart System throughout the property to optimize guest comfort while reducing energy consumption and operating costs.

The energy management system is expected to reduce overall electricity and steam consumption by approximately 25% in unoccupied rooms. The reduction of equipment run-times will also extend the useful life of the mechanical systems and cut associated maintenance costs.

Telkonet will provide a fully networked EcoSmart energy management system, replacing the hotel's existing thermostats with ZigBee-enabled EcoInsight thermostats to develop a facility-wide wireless network capable of remotely monitoring and controlling the HVAC system in each guest room. Employing Telkonet's dynamic Recovery Time technology will ensure guest comfort and maximize energy savings, particularly in unoccupied guest rooms. The entire network will be protected by Telkonet's EcoCare service to ensure optimal operation and provide proactive maintenance services.

Telkonet, as a Con Edison Market Partner, worked with PAC Consultants to take advantage of all energy efficiency incentives available through the Con Edison C&I Energy Efficiency Program, with the objective of optimizing the financial viability of the project.
