Services and Strategies to Help You Save
These technologies can be successfully employed in a wide variety of applications including classrooms, gymnasiums, hallways, parking garages, retail space, conference areas, office space and more. The techniques and technology we use can help reduce energy consumption by up to 50% and when installed in conjunction with utility rebates, can pay for themselves in 12-24 months.
Possible Energy Savings
Save with E-Trac™
Our E-Trac™ system constantly monitors dozens of your energy usage parameters including what you pay for on your electric bill, Demand (Kilowatts or KW) and Usage (Kilowatt Hours or KWH). Utilizing our energy optimization features you can gain insight on your real time energy usage, make adjustments to your controls.
OccuDimming with Daylight Harvesting
Why should your lighting fixtures continue to operate at full power when sunlight is shining through the window? It’s an unnecessary waste of energy and our intelligent system will detect natural light and reduce power to the lighting fixtures accordingly. We also detect when a room is unoccupied and reduce and/or shut off power to the lighting fixtures in order to save even more energy and money over time. Learn More
Just by scheduling when your lights turn on and off can significantly reduce your energy usage. Even Turn on HVAC with controllable thermostats and the energy savings quickly adds up. Many facilities are over-lit and can therefore be tuned down 10% to 20%. During night time hours when eyes have adjusted, lighting at full brightness levels is unnecessary and sometimes objectionable. Reduce light levels during these times and save energy.
- Early Office Hours – Dim light levels while there are few occupants 70%%
- Mid-Day – Bright sunlight reduces lighting needs 40%
- After Work Cleaning Time – Still provides substantial light levels for cleaning 50%
- Night Lights – If you still need to have some lights on over the night 10%
Demand Response is the ability to decrease energy consumption for short durations during specific periods. Usually these periods correspond to peak energy consumption events on the electrical grid. However the need for regional energy curtailment can also be the result of equipment malfunction such as power plant failure or transmission line interruption. The ability to curtail energy consumption during these periods is generally compensated by the local utility or a third party aggregator in the form of monthly payments and event specific revenue. Plimoth Bay Controls innovative control design incorporates technology that allows for instantaneous and simplified electrical load curtailment. These events can be initiated manually through the local control, remotely through an internet connection to a utility sponsored Demand Response Automated Server (DRAS) or Plimoth Bay Controls’ system management DRAS.
Custom Control Solutions
If you have an appliance that could benefit from being controlled or scheduled to save energy, chances are we can control that too. We’ve created custom control solutions for motors, air vent fans, and even pottery kilns all to help our customers save energy and money. Please contact us so we can find the solution that’s the perfect fit to help you start saving.
Environmental Impact Mitigation
We care about the environment and during periods of excessive energy consumption, utilities are forced to start less efficient, high pollution producing generators in order to meet demand. The ability to reduce consumption during these peak demand periods significantly decreases or even eliminates the need to start these older units. This action can significantly reduce or completely eliminate the release of millions of tons of pollution into our environment.
