Across Cox Enterprises, programs are in place to conserve
energy. Some of the projects include: energy-efficient building
designs; heating, ventilation and air conditioning; and lighting,
among others. Cox's Energy Conservation projects save more than
20,000 tons of carbon annually.
A sampling of Cox's Energy Conservation:
- Cox Enterprises' corporate headquarters facility in Atlanta
received the ENERGY STAR certification as a result of its
eco-friendly design features and usage.
- In New England, Cox Communications has an advanced lighting and
HVAC control system that automatically shuts down portions of the
building during off-hours. This equipment is expected to yield a 30
percent energy savings. Aging boilers were replaced with new
energy-efficient boiler systems that reduce energy consumption by
- WPXI-TV, a Cox television station in Pittsburgh, constructed an
eco-friendly building from the ground up. Seventy-five percent of
the building has a raised floor, which makes heating and cooling
the building 25 percent more efficient.
- Cox Communications, along with other members of the telecom
industry, signed a voluntary agreement intended to reduce the
amount of energy consumed by video receivers. These changes will improve the
efficiency of digital receivers by 10 to 45 percent, depending
on receiver type, by 2017 and are expected to save more than $1
billion on consumer energy bills annually.
