In today’s world, companies benefit from being mindful of their carbon footprint. It not only helps the environment, but it can also help you save money. An Energy Management System can be a solution to minimize your energy related expenses by minimizing unnecessary energy expenditure. Commonly referred to as EMS, this system allows you to monitor, analyze, and control every single energy point in your facility. By implementing an EMS, your ROI will be both short-term and long-term. The results will take effect right away and will be long lasting. You will also be highly competitive in the marketplace because of your attention to detail and reduced carbon footprint.
As the future of business is distinctly impacted by technology, it is smart to utilize the tools of the future to make sure you remain at the forefront of your industry. An EMS intertwines the very best aspects of sustainability with energy and money saving principles. Ultimately, an EMS benefits your bottom line while also enhancing your actual and perceived environmental consciousness.
Schaffhouser Electric can customize an EMS that tailors to the specific needs of you and your company. Prior to doing so, however, we will conduct an energy audit that identifies areas that are using a high amount of energy and areas that are wasting energy. The energy audit will clarify ways for you to reduce your energy use and therefore energy costs. Based on the results of your audit, we will then determine the right systems and strategies for you to best utilize your energy consumption.
The following equipment can be monitored and/or controlled by an EMS to maximize efficiency:
- Water heater
- Chain broiler
- Kitchen Equipment
- Gas and water usage
- Solar energy systems
Although we have already discussed some of the benefits of implementing an Energy Management System, we also want to highlight the idea that an EMS can even enhance your property’s value through utility sub-metering. This allows those who own properties and businesses to recoup utility costs through accurately measuring the tenant utility costs, which can be reported and invoiced to clients through an EMS. Additional benefits of an EMS include:
- See immediate savings
- Qualify for a federal tax deduction
- Increase staff productivity and efficiency
- Gain insight into how equipment is functioning
- Avoid costly equipment repair
- Integrate systems
