Energy Monitoring Systems & Site Surveys

Shadow Metering

There are times when running a parallel meter is the only way to prove to the utility company or landlord that an overcharge exists. As a rule of thumb, the parallel meter be installed for a period of 13 months prior to paying out any claims, where utility companies require 1-2 months of data. Parallel metering is an excellent way to determine if a meter is malfunctioning.

Engineering Site Survey

An Engineering Site Survey can provide conclusive evidence regarding your energy use, and can support a dispute claim for an excessive charge. An Engineering Site Survey includes the following two steps:

  1. Connected Load Study - Actual Inventory of Electric Loads -  We will send one or more of our energy engineers to your site to physically inventory every fixture and piece of equipment that draws electricity.
  2. Modified Bin Method - Analyze Loads Based on Outdoor Temperatures  - The physical inventory of electrical fixtures is then downloaded into our Modified Bin software system. This is currently the most accurate way of calculating energy usage in the market place today. The Modified Bin method takes into consideration the construction of the store, the connected load, where the facility is located, indoor and outdoor temperatures, occupancy levels, HVAC equipment, size of the store, and whether the store is on a slab, first or upper level.

    This same software is used nationally and internationally by large engineering firms. If you should elect to move forward with REMCO, we will give you the peace of mind that all of your utility bills are being audited by experts and not by clericals. 

Energy Monitoring and Management System

IETInnovative Energy Technologies, a division of REMCO, offers a unique Internet-based Energy Management System for multi-chain retailers with locations as small as 1,500 square feet. 

The nucleus of the Energy Management System is a patent-pending controller which enables monitoring and remote control of individual uses of electricity or natural gas with integrated thermostats and load controllers.  In addition to providing optimal energy utilization, the system enhances store operations by monitoring maintenance and service-related issues.

Innovative Energy Technologies' ground-breaking Energy Management System remotely monitors the retail locations 24/7 for energy consumption trends as well as potential or actual HVAC failures and notifies maintenance staff when action is needed.  

Historically, it was difficult to cost-justify the installation of energy management systems in anything but larger facilities, but this Energy Monitoring System has broken that mold and is a viable business proposition for stores with smaller square footages. In addition to the energy savings that multi-site retailers are achieving, these retailers are further demonstrating their commitment to protecting the environment with a reduction of greenhouse gas emission and pollution through superior energy efficiency. 

“With its real time and historical capabilities, this Energy Management System has been saving retailers from 20% to 26% on electric with an ROI of less than a year,” said Mary Ann Milsop, EVP of Remco Energy. “My only regret is that the technology wasn’t available sooner!” she noted.
