Kandice Castellino of Center Valley, PA has been named director of energy service company and utility sales at Encelium Technologies based in Teaneck, NJ. In her new role, she will work with a wide range of energy-related businesses throughout North America to accelerate the adoption of Encelium’s Energy Control System™ (ECS) and related total light management solutions.
Established in 2001, Encelium has installed ECS in more than 35 million square feet of commercial space throughout North America and Europe. The state-of-the-art technology has been proven to reduce lighting energy costs by 50 to 75 percent in an array of applications, including office buildings, schools, healthcare and public facilities, parking garages and stadiums.
“Kandice’s outreach to utilities, energy service companies and other energy-related businesses will help Encelium Technologies and these entities to create the infrastructure-of-the-future for smart commercial and industrial buildings,” said Tony Marano, president and CEO of Encelium.
Prior to joining Encelium, Castellino was an account manager of energy solutions. She has spent her career focusing on energy-reduction initiatives for lighting and HVAC systems within residential, commercial and industrial buildings. She was formerly employed by Lutron Electronics and Trane, Inc. and is a graduate of Lehigh University with a bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering.
ECS uses the collaborative power of addressable networking technology, in conjunction with advanced control hardware and software, to significantly reduce lighting energy consumption and costs at a faster rate than other environmental measures. ECS’ average payback-on-investment period is two to five years, depending on the application.
Based in Teaneck, NJ, with operations in Canada and Europe, Encelium has posted a nearly 100-percent annual sales increase over the past two years.
