In this video, learn more about Mississippi Power’s turnkey HVAC and lighting solutions at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art.
The Walter Anderson Museum of Art in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, knew it had HVAC problems, but management was unsure how to proceed. To make matters worse, they received conflicting advice from a variety of sources that didn't necessarily appreciate the unique requirements of the museum.
In order to protect and preserve artwork and other artifacts, museums must maintain very strict tolerances for temperature and humidity. Tolerances for vault and storage areas are even more demanding. Such environmental safeguards are also a key consideration for accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums.
"Our team provides turnkey solutions to multi-faceted challenges," explains Mississippi Power's Arlan Chenault. "We come into a business and work closely with them to analyze their energy-related issues, craft a strategy and manage implementation. We were able to do this for the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, which took a great deal of pressure off the customer."
"We're so thankful for Mississippi Power and the work of Arlan's team," shares Rosemary Roosa, executive director for the museum. "Mississippi Power provided real solutions that make a significant difference in our day-to-day operations."
