Industrial Energy Savings    

Energy Incentives

This article discusses the challenges and successes encountered while creating a retrocommissioning offering for industrial compressed air systems. The pilot program succeeded in enrolling seven different manufacturing facilities that, combined, represented more than 5,475 connected compressor horsepower. Five of the seven companies completed the pilot program and captured more than 2.3 Million annual kWh at an incentive cost of less than $0.03/kWh for the first year’s savings.
