You can't manage what you can't see
Real time remote monitoring of your energy use can give you the insight needed to develop and deploy an Energy Management Program by shedding light on the following areas:
-Your demand, based on the highest capacity you required during the given billing period, typically a 15-minute interval during that billing cycle.
-Validation of energy savings
Multiple 3 phase input monitoring will show your electric usage real time patterns and loads throughout the day, week and month. Understanding the usage will expose areas of potential savings with the best ROI. Understand early and save going forward.
Industrial/Commercial Energy Management Strategies
1. Price Management-Seek ways to reduce the cost of energy such as fuel switching or finding lower cost natural gas suppliers. This is usually the first step of an energy management plan for the reason it can save considerable money without any interruption, there is may be no cost and it can be simpler than upgrading equipment or trying to change plant culture.
2. Low-Cost, No Cost Opportunities- One time efforts to tune equipment and operating strategies that can produce energy savings immediately. While this is a good starting point toward assessing energy management opportunities and finding an immediate "success" these savings often erode over time if adequate procedures, measures and roles are not created to sustain success.
3. Capital Projects- Pursue equipment upgrades that improve efficiency. Energy cost savings can be significant in this area. New technology and utility incentives have been improving ROI creating new and more attractive opportunities for commercial and industrial facilities.
4. Strategic Energy Management- Incorporate energy into all aspects of normal business operations. A facility develops a formal energy policy, assigns leadership and sets goals. An energy plan is developed enabling a facility to prioritize opportunities and assign roles and responsibilities for achieving goals. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are tracked and the facility can measure system performance and improvements in energy productivity.
Additional Reasons to monitor electrical usage
Split a utility bill whether you have a multi-tenant warehouse, offices or want to sub-meter a 100-unit condominium.
Pre construction 30 day baseline required monitoring-Measure residential or commercial circuit panels, up to 3-phase 277/480VAC and 6900A. Our meters have HomePlug AV powerline communication, an Ethernet port, and 2 USB ports for additional options, like WiFi and serial. The user can access meter data using the free user interface, or with other systems using a published XML API, Modbus, or BACnet IP. The embedded web server allows the user to connect to the interface over the internet or on a local area network. Each unit has a data logger that stores up to 64 data points for the lifetime of the hardware, and the user can access data as granular as 1-second averages for the most recent hour of recording. The meter is an accurate and flexible solution for monitoring multiple circuits in any residential or commercial energy monitoring application. Perfect for 30-day meter demand/load studies to meet NEC 220.87 requirements.
