Westfield Culver City Shopping Mall Expects to Generate Significant Cost Savings While Increasing Sustainability Westfield Culver City shopping mall recently completed infrastructure upgrades anticipated to save $207000 in annual energy costs and to garner more than $192000 in rebate incentives from Southern California Edison. Westfield converted to an energy-saving chilled water system that incorporates ice storage to shift energy consumption from high-cost peak hours, replacing the mall's dated packaged rooftop heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Not only is Westfield reducing operational costs, the mall is also ensuring a comfortable shopping environment for its customers. In recognition of Westfield's commitment to improve building performance and sustainability, Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, presented Westfield Culver City with its "Energy Efficiency Leader Award." Attached are a video, photos and captions as well as the news release from the event that you can use in future stories. Please attribute video and photos to Trane. In addition, leaders from Trane are available for interviews to discuss challenges facing the industry and how they are helping customers meet those needs as well as industry environmental requirements, current and future regulations, trends and hot-button issues.
