In a news release issued earlier this week, Miami-Dade County announced the launch of EnergyCAP,
a new energy management software which quantifies the County’s electricity consumption and associated costs. EnergyCAP enables the County to measure, manage, and monitor the performance of more than 1,500 facilities, including Miami International Airport, PortMiami, 70 fire stations, 100 parks, and other public facilities with over 4,500 electrical meters. By making this change in its utility bill processing system, Miami-Dade County is now on track to save $2 million in annual utility spending, representing two percent of the County’s annual electricity expenses. Additional savings are achieved through invoice processing automation, estimated at three to 10 dollars per invoice.
