Power Management

To support your energy cost and environmental impact reduction strategies, knowing when, where and how your facility consumes energy is vital. Without the knowledge of how your energy is being consumed, you can't manage your energy consumption. If you can't manage your energy consumption you can't improve it. Utility cost can exceed 30% of your overall operating expense and is one of the expense lines that is actually controllable – are you managing your energy cost or is it managing you?

The Square D PowerLogic® systems are based on innovative technology that acts like a layer of intelligence across all of your energy assets, helping you accurately meter and monitor all electrical and piped utilities and, in turn, maximize energy and power reliability performance. A tightly integrated network of software and meters can span a single facility or an entire multi-site enterprise. Advanced analytic tools enable effective decisions, while coordinated control capabilities help act on them. Your return on investment is fast and quantifiable, often within a few months.

Triangle Iceberg

The Iceberg Theory

Your monthly utility bills are the peak of the iceberg, the part you can see. We all know, though, that the bulk of the iceberg is what you can't readily see. With the Square D PowerLogic solution, the full extent of the iceberg can be revealed, providing you more than just energy savings.

Reduce Utility Cost – By installing a power monitoring system, you have accurate information on when your energy is used, how it is used and where it is used. Armed with this information, you can typically reduce your energy costs by 2-4% through verification of utility bills, identification of energy waste or inefficient energy users and utilization of the information to better educate occupants and promote energy use awareness.

Optimize Equipment – Real time visibility of your power system helps identify true equipment capacity to assist in load balancing and capacity utilization. Optimization of equipment leads to maximized equipment life, potentially deferring capital expense. Equipment optimization can typically add another 2-5% cost reduction.

Improve Reliability – Because your power systems are continuously being monitored, event data can be used to trigger real-time alarms that help minimize equipment damage and power disruptions. Energy use patterns can be compared over time to highlight possible discrepancies, supporting preventative maintenance cycles and avoidance of future problems.
