Your journey to increased energy efficiency starts here. As you progress through these tiers, you’ll discover even more ways to build a healthy bottom line while streamlining your operations.
Basic energy efficiency projects can make a big difference for office buildings. PECO can provide a complimentary energy repor t to show you how to upgrade your equipment and build a healthier bottom line. Then, choose from instant lighting discounts and financial incentives for:
Install LEDs anywhere your employees gather, including workspaces, conference rooms, kitchens, lobby areas and more.
Improve visibility and safety outside your building by installing LEDs in parking areas.
Optimize the schedules for lighting and temperature control according to occupancy in your office.
IT equipment can use a significant amount of electricity even when it’s turned off. Use power management tools, such as advanced power strips, to eliminate energy consumption by automatically turning power off when IT equipment is not being used.
Typically, lighting comprises 30% of a commercial office building’s electric bill, and installing LEDs can save up to 90% of that total. A building that spends $30,000 on energy can save $8,100 annually—enough to buy more than 25 new laptops.
Building on your progress, you can increase your energy savings with more advanced energy efficiency upgrades. Take advantage of financial incentives and instant lighting discounts from PECO to make improvements like these:
Manage fluctuations in energy demand by using VSDs on HVAC air handlers and pumps to maintain comfortable heating and cooling levels all around the office.
Save even more on lighting costs by installing sensors that dim LEDs when no one is around.
Optimizing motor control systems with VSDs can reduce energy consumption in your office by as much as 70%. That means the cost to run a 100-horsepower pump for one year can drop from more than $40,000 to just over $12,000—enough to outfit six conference rooms with LCD projectors.
At this stage, you’re creating a blueprint for maximum energy efficiency. Couple the improvements you made as a Savings Leader with the best financial incentives from PECO, and consider these possibilities:
Upgrade your chillers and rooftop units to deliver the maximum value to your bottom line, because heating, cooling and ventilation costs make up to 40% of a typical office building’s use.
Capture byproduct heat generated by elevators during use and convert it to energy.
Retrocommissioning can reduce an office’s annual energy costs by up to $.075 per square foot. A 50,000-square-foot building can save $37,500, enough to cover 50% of the cost of a new HVAC system.
