How Our Power Meters Can Help Multi-Use Commercial Buildings


1 Shares

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-fifth of the energy consumed in the United States is used by commercial buildings. They also estimate that up to 20% of this energy is wasted due to inefficiencies. Imagine being able to reduce, or even eliminate this wasted energy – the cost savings would be huge!

In a world of business where every penny counts, commercial property owners and managers should put a higher priority on conserving energy. But how can they do this in a manner that is cost-effective? The answer is simple: through the use of Electro Industries’ world-class power meters and submeters.

Here is how EIG’s power monitoring systems can help decrease energy consumption in commercial buildings:

Increase awareness of energy consumption through submetering.

Submeters are a critical element for measuring energy consumption in large-scale environment. The use of submetering allows the building owner or property manager to measure energy consumption not just for the entire building, but for individual floors, tenants, and common loads such as HVAC systems. This information fosters energy savings by increasing awareness and promoting a conscientious effort to reduce consumption.

Identify areas where energy savings can be attained.

Once the power consumption data is gathered from the submeters, facility engineers can identify the most problematic areas in the building. Some of these places may include common areas such as lobbies and hallways, HVAC systems, retail floors, and individual tenants with high consumption. If your tenants are the problem, our EnergyReporter EXT software allows you to automatically bill them based on their energy usage, which gives them an incentive to cut back.

Implement energy reduction programs and monitor progress.

For several years, the U.S. Federal Energy Management Program has posted guidelines for commercial buildings to reduce their energy consumption. These guidelines always include the implementation of submetering with energy tracking and reporting. Once key problem areas are identified, you can develop an energy-savings program and use the power metering system to track its progress.

Quality is our Most Important Company Goal

Electro Industries believes that quality is our MOST IMPORTANT company goal. To achieve that goal, we provide a multipoint approach to quality. EIG uses advanced standards, from the purchasing of components to the final shipping of products, to insure that our instruments are free from defects when shipped and operate for many years in service. We provide factory tours and have been know to impress people quite often.

In-Process Environmental Testing and 100% Inspection

EIG meters utilize brand-name, industrial temperature components. They receive 100% component insertion inspection, automated computer controlled testing, temperature deviation-based accelerated life burn-in testing and extensive 2.5 KV dielectric testing. We strive to achieve low failure rates by using comprehensive quality-based design and manufacturing techniques. We test extensively so that users can be confident that when they receive and EIG meter, it is one of the best in the industry.
