Large Franchisee Reduces Energy Spend and Drives Sustainability Through Energy Management
Reston, VA – November 16, 2017 – GridPoint today announced the completion of a 337 site rollout with the largest Hardee’s franchisee in the country, Boddie Noell. The enterprise-wide rollout supports Boddie Noell’s initiative to further drive sustainability, energy savings, and increase operational efficiency. The franchisee has achieved significant energy savings using GridPoint’s solution, on top of their previously installed energy management solution, and plans to include the technology in all future construction of new facilities.
GridPoint is a smart buildings technology company that makes site optimization simple. The GridPoint Energy Manager platform provides visibility into facility operations to help customers automate and control sites, lower energy spend, and proactively manage day-to-day operations. GridPoint’s solution is unique because it utilizes three dimensions of data to create the most accurate picture of energy usage within a building: granular data at the equipment-level, real-time data, and historical data.
Boddie Noell began working with GridPoint in 2006, and will continue to leverage extensive submetering and controls for HVAC units, coolers and freezers, lighting, and cooking equipment. GridPoint’s solution provides full visibility into energy usage and facility health of each location to Boddie Noell’s facilities team, and enables them to create optimized energy strategies. As food safety is a growing concern, temperature monitoring in freezers, coolers, water heaters, and restaurant zones supports food safety requirements, and ensures that customers and employees are comfortable.
The data collected is visualized through GridPoint Energy Manager and GridPoint Energy Manager Mobile, providing Boddie Noell with on-the-go access to their data and site schedules 24/7. The mobile app is also used by their regional facility managers for equipment diagnostics and troubleshooting when issues arise. Further, Boddie Noell’s solution incorporates GridPoint’s Energy Advisory and Control Support Services to help them manage and optimize their locations, monthly meetings are held to discuss opportunities for improvement and technological advancements.
“Deploying GridPoint’s solution in all of our locations gives our facilities teams full visibility and control in order to maximize energy savings and achieve our operational goals,” says Greg Ferrell, Director of Facilities Management at Boddie Noell. “We could not be happier with GridPoint’s innovative tools and excellent service they provide.”
“Boddie Noell is an exemplary customer who has taken full advantage of the benefits GridPoint’s solution provides,” says John Richmond, SVP of National Accounts at GridPoint. “Their commitment to improvement is remarkable, and is proven through strong savings numbers achieved across hundreds of sites, sustained over time.”
