Ecova, a total energy and sustainability management company, announced that California Pizza Kitchen has reduced its electricity usage by 4.3 percent in one year through their partnership.

California Pizza Kitchen enlisted Ecova's help in 2009 after spending a significant amount on utility bills each year across its 250 locations. Ecova compiled an Energy Performance Report that helped identify and prioritize areas for improvement by focusing on the chain's locations with the highest energy consumption. The data allowed CPK management to work with employees to make behavioral changes that would impact energy use, analyze and make appropriate equipment upgrades.

"Identifying and reducing utility costs is an important part of the process when looking to decrease operational expenses, as utility bills are the third-largest budget item for many companies," said Seth Nesbitt, Ecova's senior vice president and general manager for marketing & technology. "Ecova helps many clients in the foodservice industry recognize irregularities in billings, track their energy use trends, and identify opportunities for cost and energy use efficiencies. This results in significant savings that impact the bottom line and demonstrate environmental responsibility, which is increasingly important to consumers."

Ecova's energy management solutions include Utility Expense & Data Management, Energy Supply Management and Sustainability Management.
