    Motion Sensors Non-Profit Org.

    Data analysis shows approximately a 19% reduction in total lighting power for buildings after installing Motion Sensors and making sure that the time delays were properly adjusted.

    • Premium Efficiency Motors SAVE  Substantial Amounts of Money.

      • A typical 20-hp electric motor running continuously at full load costs over $14,000 per year to operate.* Replace it with a premium efficiency motor save over $300 every year on electric power. ($0.10 per kWh)

      • A typical 100 HP motor at full load, continuous operation, costs over $70,000 per year to operate. Using a premium efficiency motor will save roughly  $1400 each and every year.* ($0.10 per kWh)

    Savings from Energy Efficient Air Compressors Money.

    • Over a 10 year operating period, a 100 hp compressed air system purchased for $40,000 will accumulate up to $800,000 in electrical power costs. Following a few simple steps can significantly reduce energy costs by as much as 35%.

    • A 520 cfm compressor, delivering air at 110 psig, requires about 100 hp. However, at 100 psig, only 95 hp is required. Potential power cost savings (at 10 cents per kWh; 8,760* hrs.) is $3,750/year.

    • A system using 520 cfm at 110 psig inlet pressure will consume only 400 cfm at 80 psig. The potential power cost savings (520 efin - 400 cfm = 120 cfm = 24 hp, at 10 cents/ kWh; 8,760* hrs.) is $18,000/year.

    Savings from Energy Efficient Air Compressors Money.

    • Each cfm of air volume wasted can be translated into extra compressor hp and is an identifiable cost. If this waste is recovered, the result will be $750/hp per year in lower energy costs.

    • It takes 7 to 8 hp of electricity to produce 1 hp worth of forced air this high energy cost quite often is overlooked
