State partners with Siemens to address software and controls to overcome aging infrastructure and combat rising energy costs

In partnership with Siemens, the State of Rhode Island upgraded its previous building automation system to Desigo® CC, and then implemented a comprehensive range of energy conservation measures as well as a continuous commissioning strategy. These energy conservation measures are delivering monthly energy savings that range between 15 and 27 percent, which equates to about $15,000 per month savings in energy costs.
