We all know heavy industry uses a lot of energy, but this client found a nasty surprise.
No visibility on energy spend, given the nature of the business, energy spend was significantly high.
Installing two 8 channel EMS to client's Main Mccb panel, along with several CTs ranging from 60amp, to 1000amp. This was to ensure the client could gain full (live) visibility of their energy usage.
Once the two EMS systems were installed and commissioned, the client initially questioned the accuracy of EMS as, when the main furnace was turned off, the EMS was showing that there was still a 10amp load. Not possible if the furnace was off!
However, on closer inspection, what the EMS had discovered, was that a previous electrical engineer had wired a lighting circuit from the main furnace panel, which was constantly on. This would never have been discovered without the ability to drill down into the client's energy usage. The client was subsequently hooked and is still exploring more and more ways to save energy.
