- Working with PG&E, Juniper's Phase 1 Energy Conservation initiatives, implemented at the company's Sunnyvale campus, resulted in an average air distribution efficiency gain of between 5% and 10% and an overall annualized reduction of energy savings in excess of $50,000. Implementation of Phase 2 Energy Conservation measures and window film application will begin soon, with a projected estimated annual energy and incentive savings of approximately $200,000.
