Telkonet Improves Senior Housing Comfort in Denver
EcoSmart Intelligent Energy Management Helps Improve Resident Comfort and Reduce Costs
MILWAUKEE, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Telkonet, Inc. (OTC BB: TKOI), whose complementary business divisions include EcoSmart™, an energy management technology platform featuring Recovery Time™ technology and EthoStream®, one of the largest high-speed Internet access ("HSIA") providers in the world, today announced the installation of EcoSmart Intelligent Energy Management System at the Denver Housing Authority.
Telkonet has installed their EcoSmart Energy Management System at Denver Housing Authority's (DHA) Barney Ford Heights subsidized housing facility. Located in Downtown Denver, Colorado, Barney Ford Heights provides subsidized housing to nearly 100 seniors.
Chris Jedd, LEED AP BD+C Portfolio Energy Manager for DHA said "We had little to no information or control of tenant HVAC energy consumption. The installation of EcoSmart will provide energy savings, improved occupant comfort and important information on how these spaces are occupied. Telkonet's EcoCentral Virtual Engineer will provide DHA with access to energy use data in real-time, enabling remote management of HVAC Mechanical Systems and reporting on system performance and health. The energy savings data will help determine the viability of EcoSmart technology in similar applications where occupants are long term tenants."
Jason Tienor, Telkonet CEO states, "We are pleased to have completed this installation to improve the resident's comfort and give DHA powerful tools to efficiently manage their facilities. Our innovative EcoSmart control system brings real value to reduce installation and startup costs and continually manage energy costs for quick payback of their investment."

DHA has transformed public housing in Denver; creating a vibrant, revitalized, sustainable, transit oriented, and mixed-income community of choice.
