IFMA Chapter Member MicroNOC’s Smart Energy Savings System
Commercial buildings consume approximately 70% of total electricity used in the US and roughly 30% of it is wasted inefficiently, much of it at the wrong times of day which leads to wasted energy supply and higher energy use rates.
As distributed energy resources (DER) such as rooftop solar, battery storage, and EV systems become a necessity of our electrified lifestyles—the technology to optimize, aggregate, and control their energy time of use (TOU) at the user side or behind the meter (BTM) for synchronization with the power grid’s time of supply--is now more critical than ever.
If all buildings could consume energy at the right times—we could reduce energy waste and also generate cleaner sources of energy supply for future generations. Enter MicroNOC Inc., a building-to-grid (B2G) service provider whose vision and mission are to do just that.
The Many Benefits of MicroNOC’s AERS-QBR Systems
By using their proprietary technology starting with their aggregated energy resources solution (AERS)™ and qualified balance resource (QBR)™ systems, MicroNOC offers energy saving solutions and usage synchronization for facilities, utilities, and grid operators. More precisely, their building clients can benefit as a DER if managed effectively by a smart energy saving system (SESS) that lowers their energy usage and in turn reduces their operating costs.
A SESS connected to MicroNOC’s network operating center (NOC) can manage and regulate energy usage by purchasing it at the lowest peak usage rates and releasing it when energy demand is at its highest. They also prevent energy spikes and excessive energy demand by modulating and flattening energy usage for peak performance. As more loads and generating resources are connected through DER’s, power usage will decrease, outages will cease, and the SESS industry will graduate to a full-fledge grid resource.
Building Managers Can Take Advantage of These Cost Savings Now
This fall 2019, a mix of energy storage aggregators and utility-run programs such as California’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) are bringing a wide range of resources together to FM’s to reduce peak load, take stress off the system and slash utility costs. The SGIP provides incentives to support advanced distributed energy resources and provides rebates for qualifying DERs installed on the customer's side of the utility meter.
SESS providers like CLW Enterprises collaborate and partner with their clients for the most effective and profitable energy saving systems that are designed, installed, operated, and owned by MicroNOC. These systems balance a building’s energy Time-of-Use (TOU) during the highest cost peak rates for 25% off the utility rate.
All that’s required for a facility to get started is to provide a copy of their highest electric utility’s billing statement, usage interval data, and interior or exterior equipment space. Design to installation is typically four months. For more information please contact CLW Enterprises at CLWEnterprises@att.net, call (951) 415-3002, or visit www.clw-enterprises.com.
