Ecova, a total energy and sustainability management company, has announced that CKE Restaurants, parent company of Hardee's and Carl's Jr. chains, has experienced utility savings of approximately $358,000 between January 2010 and June 2012 through their partnership.

Ecova helps restaurant chains become more energy efficient while reducing operational costs. CKE Restaurants Inc. wanted to reduce its large utility costs when it partnered with Ecova in 2004.

Ecova was able to detect the most efficient and highest consuming energy restaurants from 3,200 nationally, and identify ways to get individual restaurants to improve their performance.

"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, senior vice president and general manager, Marketing & Technology, Ecova. "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.
