How to Reduce Energy Waste Before You Spend Money on an Audit Mar 3, 2016 Mark Lamendola | Electrical Testing Brand

No comments

Mark Lamendola did a wonderful job of writing this article and I wish and hope that it would make sense and be read world wide. Here at Green-Energy-Products we have been preaching the same message since 2012 please see Electrical Energy Efficiency Audit

Often, an energy audit gets delayed because it’s perceived as complicated. Or it’s delayed because to really do it right will cost more money than the budget allows. You may eventually need the highest ASHRAE level of energy audit to totally clamp down on energy waste, but you don’t need it to save energy right now. In fact, you can start saving energy without conducting an audit at all.

If you’ve done many energy audits, you can expect a short list of the same few items to be found in energy audits. If you know what these items are, then you can test for (and resolve) them at the pre-audit stage. Handling these before conducting an audit provides at least three advantages:

1) The results of the audit will be smaller and easier to deal with.

2) You can start saving energy right away.

3) You overcome management’s inertia.

Maybe you had the audit and have completed the punch list. Rather than undergo another audit to see what the first audit may have missed (or what wasn’t addressed correctly), you can look at these few things and probably solve any issues that still exist.

So what are those few things? Experts may disagree about the exact list, but generally you can expect to see the following:

• Grounding in place of bonding. This causes dangerous differences in potential and sets you up for circulating currents. It sets you up for energy-wasting power quality problems. Any time you have mysterious power quality issues, first make sure the system complies with Art. 250, Part V. That alone may fix the problem, ending the need for many hours of testing, troubleshooting, and head-scratching.

Voltage waveform with about 12% harmonic distortion.

• Excess harmonics. A harmonics tester is a good investment. If you have excess harmonics, it means the equipment has to use more power to do the same work. One sign you may have excess harmonics is that thermographic surveys show conductors to be hotter than they should be. That heat is wasted energy.

• Low power factor. Motors are inductive loads, and they shift the power vector off of center. To shift it back, you add capacitance. This solution is often overlooked because there are already power factor correction capacitors at the service. But power factor correction at the service doesn’t fix the low power factor problem at the motor. You need to correct at the motor. Motors with variable speed drives are a special case; don’t just add capacitors or you may destroy the drive. If the drive is not harmonics and power factor corrected, contact the manufacturer to see what can be done.

Energy Upgrades That Are Worth Your Time
Conducting a Low-Level Energy Audit
• High-resistance connections. These are just going to happen. The trick here is to find and fix them early in their deterioration phase. Regular thermographic surveys will find such connections if they are accessible. Inaccessible connections will require resistance measurements if a shutdown can be arranged or voltage (across each connection) if it can’t.

• Load imbalance. Not only do load imbalances waste energy, they significantly shorten the lives of motors. Ideally, you’ll have a power monitoring system, and it will be looking at some specific nodes (such as feeders/branch circuits to critical motors). Your PM procedures should call for supply voltage measurements, and provide the tolerance range (in volts) based on acceptable voltage imbalance.

• Unoccupied areas fully lit. It’s not so much that anyone needs an energy audit to reveal this problem; it’s that management wants to pay for a facility’s energy savings work only after a formal audit. So even though everyone can see this problem, it doesn’t get addressed. But management is thinking in terms of the whole facility. So change the terms. The solution is to determine what lighting controls are needed for a given area and then write a specific proposal for that one area.

This last bullet point exemplifies a problem you could run into. Namely, management wants a complete picture so the energy savings projects can be properly prioritized with the limited funding available in the energy-savings project budget. That makes sense, so far as it goes. But during the delay, many of these projects would have already paid for themselves. Except for the last item in our list above, all of these can be cast as equipment availability or safety issues. The energy savings will be a bonus.

Find Out How You Can Benefit by Using Solar Energy

How Solar Energy works

Solar panels are made of solar PV (photovoltaics) cells. These cells collect energy from the sun and turn it into DC (direct current) electricity. The DC electricity is then converted into AC (alternative current) electricity which is used to power up appliances in your home.

Solar power is an environmentally friendly energy source which also has financial benefits for you. In this post we will take a look at various ways you will profit from using the free energy from the sun.

Reduce Your Energy Bill

When you generate electricity from solar power, you limit the amount of electricity you purchase from your provider, which results in a reduced energy bill at the end of the month. Not only that, but Florida’s net metering system allows you to get credited for the energy your solar system has generated, but hasn’t been used.

More often than not, your system will generate more electricity than you will use. You can export the excess electricity back to the grid and get credited for that amount at retail rates. The amount of electricity you export to the grid is either deducted from your monthly bill or is credited for a future bill within 12 months. If you don’t use those credits within 12 months you will get paid by the electricity provider, but at a lower rate.

Federal and State Incentives

On a federal level, through the federal solar tax credit, you get 30 per cent tax credit. This means that you will save 30 per cent of the price of your solar system. This includes both installation and equipment costs. If your system is worth $20,000, you will save $6000.
The state of Florida stimulates residents to adopt solar energy by exempting solar systems from sales tax. This covers not only solar panels, but all components which are part of the system. If you want to read more about federal and state incentives for solar energy you can visit the database for state incentives for renewable and efficiency online.

Increased Home Value

Any improvement you make to your home adds to its value. Solar panels are no different. A case study in California showed that on average, the resale price of a house increases with $5000 for every kW of energy that the solar system produces for one year.

Another study showed that solar powered houses sell 20 per cent faster and up to 15 per cent over their original value. Since electricity prices are continuously rising, it is safe to assume that homes with renewable energy will see an increase in demand and price in the future.

Energy Independence

By generating electricity from solar energy, you will decrease your dependence from the electricity provider. Prices often fluctuate and there is a trend of increasing energy costs. It is easy to calculate how much energy your solar panels generate and you will have a constant price for the lifetime of the solar system. Most manufacturers give 20-25 years performance warranty on their panels. Nevertheless, most solar systems will generate a good amount of electricity for up to 45 years.

Environmental Benefits

Solar energy is a 100 per cent renewable energy source. The process of generating electricity from solar energy is silent and there are no greenhouse gas emissions or by-products which pollute the environment. You will lower your carbon footprint significantly. A typical residential solar system can save up to 100 000lbs of carbon dioxide emissions in the span of 20 years – comparable to driving a car for 100000 miles.

Solar energy provides many monetary benefits, like reducing your energy bills and improving your home value. Moreover, it gives you the satisfaction that you limit the effects of global warming and provide a better future for your children and generations to come.
