12-hour use interval
[$1.488/h (cooling) + $0.414 (motor)] x 12 hours = $22.824 per day
On a year
$22.824 per day x 365 = $8,330.76

Minutes of Escalator Occupancy
Escalator Resource Misappropriation
After reviewing the data, we have found that we met our hypothesis that the escalators were being used less than 50% of the time at the Valley River Center Mall; therefore the escalator is not properly designed for the space and wastes energy when not in use.
