The cost of electricity has been increasing rapidly – both because of increased prices and increased demand. Since electricity spend is one of the major operating costs for both commercial and industrial consumers, reducing and keeping a tight control on electricity costs is increasingly becoming a key performance indicator.
However, we can’t control/reduce something that we can’t measure. As we all know that measurement is the 1st step that leads to control and which eventually leads to improvement.
Zenatix Solutions provides Energy Intelligence Software that measures and analyzes the electricity usage at all levels and at all times. Hence, using this software, the facilities manager can measure how much electricity is being consumed by a chiller plant or a UPS and at what times. Similarly a production manager can accurately measure the units consumed by each machine and can therefore accurately account for the cost of production for each machine.
This information empowers the facilities manager to take informed decision to control and reduce the electricity costs. For example, using Zenatix software, a facilities manager found out that the Air Conditioning was being switched-on at 8:00 am instead of desired start time of 9:00 am. Pushing the switch-on time by 1 hour helped them save more than Rs. 500,000 per year.
