Women's Fitness of Boston, Mass.

Women’s Fitness of Boston, an Eversource Energy customer, is a 10,000-square-foot urban gym providing modern strength training and cardio equipment, exercise classes, and personalized nutrition and fitness programs in a non-intimidating, all-female setting.

The owners of this small business contacted Eversource about how to save money on their electric bills and were directed to the utility's Small Business Direct Install Program vendor, RISE Engineering. RISE conducted a free energy assessment of the facility and recommended improvements, including state-of-the-art LED lighting fixtures, lighting controls, programmable thermostats, and high-efficiency showerheads. These energy-efficiency measures produced a projected $5,000 in annual electricity savings and created a brighter, more enjoyable environment for the gym’s clientele and employees.
