Johnson Controls to Showcase Energy Efficient Lighting and Cooling Solutions at Summerfest

A more energy efficient experience awaits the performers and guests at the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage as Summerfest, the world's largest music festival, kicks off in Milwaukee June 26.

Johnson Controls, a global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, recently signed a three year sponsorship with Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. that allows the company to help improve the efficiency of its sponsored stage.

"Johnson Controls works on sustainability projects around the world and to show how we can help make Summerfest, located in our hometown, more energy efficient, is a great way to tell our story to thousands of music lovers who will enjoy this world-class festival," said Ward Komorowski, director of global facilities for Johnson Controls.

Improvements provided by Johnson Controls World Sound Stage include:

  • Replacement of lamps in the seating area with energy efficient LED bulbs
  • Split system high efficiency air conditioning units for the backstage dressing rooms and offices
  • Installation of Metasys® building management system that will provide real-time information on energy usage in the stage area

To help festival goers learn more about what makes the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage more energy efficient, a sustainability tower will be located at the entrance to the seating area. This tower will allow Summerfest goers the ability to see the energy improvement results being measured in real-time basis.

The tower will house a wind turbine and solar panels which will demonstrate how energy can be captured and used to power the displays on the tower.

Johnson Controls estimates the annual energy savings to the stage area for the festival will be 7,700,000 watt hours, enough to power a Fender Frontman® guitar amplifier for 21,418 hours.
