Itelecom, a technology and innovation company with US Headquarters in Miami Lakes, Florida and Global Headquarters in Santiago, Chile, with years of experience on the subject of energy reduction and utilizing new technologies to assist in energy reduction, has joined the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Standards Program with an emphasis on supporting the SCTE “Energy 2020” program.
“The support and expertise of the vendor community is vital to optimizing Energy 2020’s ability to drive cost avoidance for cable,” said Mark Dzuban, President of SCTE. “Itelecom’s years of experience in both technology innovations and energy reduction can bring value as we institute standards and operational practices that can trim up to $1 billion off cable’s energy bill in the next five years.”
Itelecom has an innovative model for helping large companies, like MSOs, upgrade their entire lighting infrastructure to the latest lighting technology available without needing to tap into any new budget allocation. Itelecom performs the upgrade of lighting with no upfront cost to the MSO, and then sets a monthly quota for 3-4 years that is guaranteed to be less than the savings.
The GO+ Lighting Service brings down the lighting portion of the electric bill by 55-60% on average, thus allowing the MSO to pay for the upgrade in lighting out of savings.
Christopher Zanyk, GM for Itelecom USA, stated, “We want to help MSOs in their efforts to ‘go green’ and reduce their energy consumption – with the GO+ Lighting Upgrade Service, MSOs have one less thing to worry about in terms of their lighting costs.”
