Increasing energy costs are one of the biggest budget concerns for many industries. Additionally, companies today want to be seen as doing their part for the environment.
As a result – both for financial reasons and for environmental reasons, many companies today are looking for ways to cut back their energy usage and reduce their GHG emissions.
It is difficult however to make decisions about energy management if you don’t know where excess energy is being used. Sub-metering allows you to get detailed information on the energy use in specific departments or from specific pieces of equipment.
What is Sub-Metering?
A sub-meter is any meter that is installed after the main utility meter and monitors consumption at the source. This could be for electricity, water, thermal, etc. Sub-metering provides you with the necessary data to help you optimize your energy use and can help you reduce your overall utility costs.
Advantages of Sub-Metering
- Determine if or when you have systems that are running unnecessarily.
- Employees receive regular feedback about energy usage.
- Power usage of each piece of equipment can be benchmarked.
- Receive alerts when energy usage exceeds benchmarks.
- Improve your ROI and sustainability.
- Reduce the need for energy audits.
With sub-metering, you receive a detailed analysis of when and where energy is being used. This not only helps you identify potential areas of conservation, but it can also alert you to small maintenance issues before they become major problems.
Furthermore, with its advanced reporting capabilities installing sub-metering in your business can help you with measuring your environmental footprint by measuring and projecting CO2 output.
