12 Story High Rise
Allied was called in by the owner of a 125,00 ft^2 high rise is Georgia. The owner was experiencing a significant increase in their energy consumption and cost. Allied conducted a detailed utility rate, usage analysis and energy audit. The objective was to determine what was causing the increase and demine the on-going solutions to reduce energy & maintenance operating cost.
It was determined that the 600 kW electric boiler was being allowed to operate simultaneously with the chiller during summer peak periods. This operation created an artificial summer peak demand increase electric cost for the remainder of the year.
Allied recommended a energy management system to restrict this operation and to notify management when peak demand was being reached. In addition, Allied recommended a complete retrofit of the clients lighting system to a new high efficient LED lighting system. Allied Energy Lighting provided the turn-key service. The customer has saved over $180,000 annually.
