Electric City captures State of Illinois Thompson Center energy conservation contract

ELK GROVE, Ill., June 20, 2002 — Electric City has received a $250,000 contract from the State of Illinois Central Management Services (CMS) for the purchase and installation of Electric City EnergySaversâ„- and GlobalCommanderâ„- variable base load demand reduction system at the State of Illinois Thompson Center.

The CMS selected the innovative EnergySaver systems to reduce the facility’s electrical consumption for lighting by 20-25 percent.

“We are pleased to be chosen by The State of Illinois’ CMS in its efforts to apply innovative energy conservation technology to help control facility operating costs,” said John Mitola, CEO of Electric City. “Electric City and DiaMac Electric, our electrical contractor partner, have been working closely with the State to identify various applications where the EnergySaver can help the State reduce energy consumption. We believe that the EnergySaver’s proven performance in hundreds of customer applications will make the Thompson Center installation the first of many for the State.”

“The EnergySavers will provide added efficiency to the T-12 fluorescent, metal halide and high-efficiency T-8 fluorescent lighting in the 16-story Thompson Center,” said Jim Stump, DiaMac Electric president, IBEW Local #134 member. “The GlobalCommander allows the facility manager to remotely schedule, control and monitor the lighting throughout the facility to take advantage of daylight harvesting, demand curtailment rebates and changes in occupancy for even greater savings.”
