Founded in 1992 in Dover, N.H., Planet Fitness is one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the United States by the number of members and locations. As of September 30, 2017, Planet Fitness had approximately 10.5 million members and 1,432 stores in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada and the Dominican Republic. The Company's mission is to enhance people's lives by providing a high-quality fitness experience in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment, which we call the Judgement Free Zone®. More than 95% of Planet Fitness stores are owned and operated by independent business men and women.
Planet Fitness clubs are open 24/7, 365 days a year. This equals massive energy usage and energy spend. When a new location opens, there is a focus on ensuring the most efficient energy usage without sparing the look and feel of the facility for their members.
MES consults directly with franchise owners, and their team, to maximize efficiency and reduce costs for new construction or retrofit projects. MES researches location-specific utility rebate programs to determine which equipment would achieve the greatest savings.
When looking for rebates or incentives, the MES team investigates LED lighting, high bay retrofits, HVAC, programmable thermostats, water heaters, and building envelope. Our team handles the application process from start to finish, and advocates for the maximum rebate.
