Energy Management Systems

If you’re interested in consolidating—and maximizing—your efforts to save money on energy expenses and to reduce your company’s carbon footprint, an energy management system (EMS) may very well be the solution you’ve been looking for. The energy solution experts at Schaffhouser Electric would love to talk to you about how an energy management system will allow you to monitor, analyze, and control each and every one of your facility’s energy points. Among other bonuses, an energy management system begins to save you money both right away and in the long-term, and offers an impressively quick ROI.

What Does An Energy Management System Do?

Prior to customizing an energy management system that works for you and your company, Schaffhouser Electric will conduct an energy audit. This audit looks closely at energy consumption to identify areas of high usage and waste. We then determine services and systems that will reduce energy demand or control how much energy is used, all while productivity levels are maintained, if not heightened.

The following equipment can be monitored and/or controlled by an EMS to maximize efficiency:

  • HVAC
  • Lighting (Read more about lighting retrofit and design on our page dedicated to the topic.)
  • Signage
  • Subtenants
  • Generators
  • Refrigerators/Coolers (temperature, doors)
  • Water heater
  • Chain broiler
  • Irrigation
  • Kitchen Equipment
  • Gas and water usage
  • Solar energy systems

Benefits Of An Energy Management System

An EMS will help you save money and time and can even increase property values. This is largely achieved through utility “submetering,” which allows property- and business- owners to recoup utility costs by accurately measuring tenant utility costs. The EMS can even generate and deliver invoices to tenants. Other 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
