SeaWorld makes a splash with energy reduction

By on October 28, 2014

One of San Antonio’s favorite amusement parks has a whale of a tale when it comes to saving energy.

SeaWorld of Texas participates in CPS Energy’s Demand Response program, meaning the park voluntarily cuts down on energy use when demand is highest. The energy-saving changes are unnoticeable to park visitors. The park is also switching to LED lights to save energy and money.

SeaWorld of Texas began participating in demand response in 2009. Each year, they have increased their participation — exceeding 1,100 kilowatts of savings per event last summer and looking to increase that number in 2015.

Demand response is an integral part of CPS Energy’s strategy to save 771 megawatts by 2020. Companies enrolled in the program receive incentive checks for reducing energy use when asked.

    Thanks for the great share! I also like the idea of Energy Efficiency. The best part I like is this: The reliability and availability of modern energy sources cause people to tend to assume that it will always be accessible. And as for the case of non-renewable energy sources, most people do not know or maybe even refuse to accept that it will eventually run out.
