Replace or upgrade your systems and controls.
For many commercial and industrial customers, opportunities exist to reduce energy costs by replacing or upgrading their equipment. Whether you are installing new equipment, replacing old equipment, or upgrading a working system, we provide technical assistance and incentives to help you optimize your energy efficiency investment.
Types of Equipment
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
Combined heat and power systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and thermal energy in a single, integrated system. Heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation is recovered as useful energy. While the conventional method of producing usable heat and power separately has a typical combined efficiency of 45 precent, CHP systems can operate at levels as high as 80 precent.
Improving compressed air efficiency is generally the best opportunity industrial companies have to make a significant and immediate impact on their electric bill.
Energy Management Systems
An Energy Management System automatically turns off equipment when it is not needed. Advances in technology have made these systems cost-effective for facilities of all sizes.
Food Service Equipment
With energy efficient stoves, refrigerators and more, restaurants and other food service facilities can cut energy costs by 10 to 30 precent.
Heating, Ventilating, Air-conditioning (HVAC) Equipment
Improvements in heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment and systems can not only reduce energy usage and costs but can also significantly improve comfort and improve worker productivity.
Lighting and Lighting Controls
By upgrading lighting, owners can improve the economics of their buildings while enhancing the visual comfort and productivity of occupants.
Variable Speed Drives
Variable speed drives reduce energy consumption by operating at speeds that vary based on changing loads. Savings from variable speed drives increases as loads decrease.
Process and Manufacturing Equipment
Energy is a significant, controllable expense for most manufacturers, and energy efficiency is a direct way to reduce costs while limiting greenhouse gas emissions.
Today’s vending machines incorporate more efficient compressors, fan motors, and lighting systems to keep beverages cold and the machine visible while using less energy.
