Franklin County School District Energy saving program commenced in June 2020 with the installation of vootu’s real time energy monitoring system E-TRAQ.
making energy usage visible is the first step in understanding where excess energy usage takes place. FCSD superintendent Steve Lanier identified on several occasions that equipment was being left on when not necessary, leading him to believe this problem was an opportunity to reduce energy usage.
E-TRAQ is the tool missing within most organizations, yet electricity costs remain one of the highest fixed operating expenses. E-TRAQ is the modern approach to electricity cost reduction, its hard to fix something you can’t see. Gaining visibility in real time via a web based energy dashboard provides an opportunity to understand both usage and where energy waste happens.
When embarking on a program to reduce energy usage you need data to verify your actions are in fact lowering consumption. E-TRAQ provides a complete audit trial of electricity usage by the second allowing daily, monthly and annual comparisons to be easily viewed. progress happens at the speed of trust, with E-TRAQ install there is no longer any guesswork associated with energy management, you can trust the accuracy of E-TRAQ.
It’s now becoming common practice to upgrade school lighting systems to high efficiency LED technology. Using E-TRAQ you can quickly verify the kilowatt reductions achieved when you make this valuable upgrade. In addition LED upgrades create a negative effect that actually drives up your demand charges. E-TRAQ will identify the phase imbalance created and by careful rebalancing confirm when an optimal situation has been achieved.
There’s more to energy management than changing out light bulbs and without the use of todays technology such as E-TRAQ the outcome is unpredictable. E-TRAQ guarantees all action taken towards lowering energy consumption is working as intended. Franklin County School Districts Energy saving program has a solid foundation for a successful outcome…..”you can’t manage what you can’t measure” Stop approaching energy savings the outdated way and use technology to guarantee the outcome.
Make energy waste a thing of the past with E-TRAQ and vootu’s energy management services.
