WHAT WE DO Intelligent Energy Management Intelligent Demand Response Intelligent Energy Efficiency Intelligent Demand Control
INTELLIGENT ENERGY EFFICIENCY A Powerful Solution: • Identifying opportunities for on-going energy efficiency by strategically managing consumption to reduce overall electrical consumption without compromising production or quality Intelligent Energy Management Intelligent Energy Efficiency Intelligent Demand Response Intelligent Demand Control Primary Benefits: • Quick Payback: typically 2 to 18 months • Savings: 7-15% reduction in overall electrical utility bill • Innovation: intelligent coordination of facility operations and building management
INTELLIGENT DEMAND CONTROL A Powerful Solution: • Understanding where, when, and why demand spikes occur then reducing or shifting them with minimal impact on facility operations Intelligent Energy Management Intelligent Energy Efficiency Intelligent Demand Response Intelligent Demand Control Primary Benefits: • Quick Payback: typically 2 to 18 months • Savings: 10 – 40% reduction in overall peak demand • Innovation: prioritizing loads based on rules and set points
INTELLIGENT DEMAND CONTROL Demand Control Via Load Shedding
INTELLIGENT DEMAND CONTROL Sheds Loads to Reduce Peak Demand Charges  By managing their peak demand, our client saves over $65,000 a month with no negative impact to production.
INTELLIGENT DEMAND RESPONSE A Powerful Solution: • Event-based reduction in electric usage by end-user customers in response to changes in the price of electricity over time or to incentive payments designed to induce lower peak use Intelligent Energy Management Intelligent Energy Efficiency Intelligent Demand Response Intelligent Demand Control Primary Benefits: • Quick Payback: typically 6 months- sometimes less than 1 • Savings: revenue/discounts received for both availability commitment and performance • Innovation: prioritizing loads based on rules and set points
INTELLIGENT DEMAND RESPONSE Definitions of Demand Response Intelligent, Auto DR Intelligent DR • Manual DR • Operators receive notification, make reductions by hand • Controlled Manual DR • Operators receive notification, make reduction manually using • installed control system • Auto DR • Signal sent by utility or aggregator to site and triggers automatic reduction using fixed list of loads • Intelligent DR • Signal received by utility initiates DR automation & rolling curtailment begins based on user-defined action plan • Intelligent Auto DR • Enables all the qualities of Intelligent DR with the added complexity of a decision tree that allows for the event to be triggered without human interaction at the time of the event. Demand Response
CURTAILMENT CHALLENGES Any Solutions Must Address These Objectives: • Load shedding is too risky • Can’t earn enough to justify risk • Not enough automation infrastructure to do it right • Not able to determine exact curtailment level • Not enough information to make participation decision • Must coordinate differing processes & systems

APPENDIX Please use appendix to supplement this presentation.
GUADALUPE COOLING COMPANY A Powerful Solution: Powerit’s system gave the facility the technology to participate in utility incentive programs allowing 1,560 kW to be available for CA’s DR needs. Immediate compensation resulted through utility DR incentives. Powerit’s Financial & Environmental Impact: 52% decrease in peak demand ROI = Less than 1 month Avoided the generation capacity to power 1,154 homes Equals generation capacity CO2 offset of 2,028 acres of fir tree forests “We’ve tried to participate in PG&E’s DR programs manually but we were totally unsuccessful. Powerit’s technology made it easy.” Danny Vincent, Plant Manager
DEL MAR FOOD PRODUCTS “We are not only satisfied but overwhelmingly thrilled with the product.” Lee Haskins, Director of Operations A Powerful Solution: Powerit’s system allowed for a 420kW reduction in average monthly peak demand. Del Mar’s peak demand reduction resulted in an annual savings of $55,440. Powerit’s Financial & Environmental Impact: Project Cost= $85,000 20% decrease in peak demand ROI = Less than 11 months Avoided the generation capacity to power 481 homes Equals generation capacity CO2 offset of 845 acres of fir tree forests
ANCHOR WAREHOUSE SERVICES “"I’m not easy to impress but this is one of the few times that I can honestly say the end result was greater than I anticipated..” Garth Ramseier, President A Powerful Solution: Powerit’s technology allowed for 365kw in estimated available DR capability. Anchor Warehouse Services will utilize this system to automatically reduce loads within the plant when triggered for a demand response event. Project Cost= $825,000 Powerit’s Financial & Environmental Impact: Utility bill savings of 17% each month (forecast) • Primary Loads: • Wine chillers / Refrigeration Compressors • Wine Pumps • Nitrogen Compressors • Air Conditioning / Air Handling Units • BOD Blowers • Irrigation & Aeration Pumps ROI = Less than 1 month Avoided the generation capacity to power 121 homes Equals generation capacity CO2 offset of 212 acres of fir tree forests
