The DLC brings intelligent climate control to any commercial and industrial facility
The Save Energy Systems Demand-Limiting Controller (DLC) is an intelligent, networked system that automatically manages and optimizes energy usage of an HVAC system at industrial, commercial and retail facilities. The DLC system uses distributed sensors and advanced logic to control all onsite HVAC compressors, thereby reducing total maximum energy demand, kWh use, and overall power consumption during peak hours. It can also combine internal sensor data from discrete zones with external conditions to ensure optimal building conditions. Its operation can be completely automated, while also providing on-line, managed control from a central location.
Save Energy Systems reduces peak demand charges and slashes overall energy costs
The electricity bill of commercial and industrial businesses consists of two components: actual energy consumption (kWh) and demand charges (peak kW used at a specific time). Demand charges are fees charged by utilities to significant users of energy (10,000 kWh or more), per billing cycle, based on the peak amount of electricity used during a defined period, often a 15-minute interval. These demand charges can have a substantial impact on the energy bill of company in unpredictable ways, often representing 50% or more of the total charges.
Generally, HVAC systems are the largest consumer of energy for non-manufacturing companies. Small to medium-sized commercial and industrial businesses have little control over their peak power usage because they cannot easily monitor and control how their HVAC systems operate. If they could better manage the operation of their HVAC systems, they could lower costly demand charges and significantly reduce their energy bill.
The Save Energy Systems DLC is designed specifically to reduce the demand charges associated with HVAC. It is a cost-saving retrofit that enables precision control of most HVAC systems. It’s perfect for businesses such as health clubs, auto dealers, retailers, offices, and distribution/logistics warehouses. By installing our patented DLC system, businesses such as these can take advantage of the same energy-saving techniques employed by big corporations, and immediately tame the equipment that’s the largest component of their energy bill: the HVAC system.
