Free Energy Assistance for Industry
Through the Comprehensive Services Program, we provide engineering
and technical assistance at your site. Depending on the scope of the
project, the work can often be performed at a significant savings--sometimes
no charge at all--versus hiring a private contractor. The program covers all
areas of energy use, including lighting, HVAC, wiring, water heating,
industrial processes, load management, and commercial cooking. Call us
at 745-4501. Services include:
HVAC studies examine the sizing of equipment, offer heating-and-cooling-system comparisons, investigate problems with existing systems, and provide recommendations for improvements.
Studies provide recommendations for the design of lighting systems in such places as sports fields, roadways, parking lots, and commercial industrial plants.
We install temporary metering equipment to gather data on facility electrical usage.
Monitoring and testing electrical systems and recommendations related to managing peak demand.
General survey of energy use in a facility and recommendations on energy management opportunities, process, and facility improvements.
Studies address voltage problems originating inside or outside the facility that adversely affect the end user.
Metering and recommendation to correct for low power factor.
Grounding study, grounding testing, and lightning-protection recommendations.
Studies analyze the facility's distribution system, including the sizing of wiring and equipment, and provide recommendations for system improvement.
Examine the procedures for producing a product, such as materials handling, shipping, receiving, product flow, and energy utilization.
Locate leaks in water, steam, air, and vacuum systems.
Scans of electrical equipment such as transformers, breakers, bus and conductor connections for hot spots, as well as scans for facility heating-and-cooling systems.
Industrial Expansion Services
Assistance in planning for facility expansions, including rates and services available.
Special End-Use Projects
Special projects to meet specific and unique needs of commercial and industrial customers.
Examine food storage, preparation, and cooking, with recommendations on equipment, area design, ventilation, and heat reclaim.
Studies explore heat-pump water-heater applications, standard energy-efficient water heaters, and cost comparison of electrical versus fossil-fuel systems.
