Trinity Management Trains On-Site Staff in Energy Benchmarking to Increase Engagement

Trinity hired Wegowise as a third-party firm to track utility consumption across its portfolio. Wegowise held two training sessions in 2017 for all of five of Trinity’s portfolio directors and most of the 40 property managers on their system so they could learn how to monitor monthly utility consumption and costs at their properties. In addition, Trinity prepared a quarterly utility analysis for each property manager to spur conversation about recent energy consumption and opportunities to decrease operating costs. Wegowise will continue these trainings twice a year to keep property managers up-to-date and maintain an ongoing discussion around analyzing utility data on their platform. The next step will be for property managers to use their analysis to engage facilities and maintenance workers to work on energy-saving measures.

Property managers were required to attend trainings with Wegowise. All staff with access to the monitoring platform are required to view their site’s monthly utility consumption and raise abnormalities directly with Trinity Management’s account manager.

Trinity’s executive staff meet bi-weekly with Wegowise to discuss energy spikes, data integrity, and related issues. Trinity discusses any red flags with individual property managers and gives them a deadline by which they must provide context for what might be going on at their sites.
