“This award emphasizes our commitment to furthering our sustainability practices, including our pledge to reduce carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030. We, and the financial industry as a whole, can make a real difference in the fight against climate change. Our customers expect it, and we demand it from ourselves,” said Lisa Chappell, Mission Fed’s 1st Vice President ofCorporate Facilities “I want to thank our facilities management team who has been relentless in driving these improvements forward.”

Bilancio manufactures a patented device that is installed within companies’ electrical panels and effectively reduces harmonics, balances the electrical panels and improves power factor by nearly 50 percent as indicated by third-party testing via NTS and D&K Engineering.
Initially, Bilancio organized a pilot installation that included four Mission Fed branch locations in San Diego to analyze and study data pre-install and post-install. The pilot program succeeded in a total of 13.6 percent reduction in kWh for all four locations, verified by the facilities management team at Mission Fed.
Following the successful results of their initial pilot program, Mission Fed moved forward with the installation of Bilancio within 25 additional buildings and three data centers. Results yielded an outstanding 15 percent total reduction across their entire portfolio and savings over $500,000 in annual energy expenditures.
