Graybar | Specializing in supply chain management services

Graybar Sales Representative Michael Luongo discussed Graybar PowerSmart®, which is Graybar’s energy platform that helps businesses build and manage energy-efficient facilities. Through this total energy solution, Graybar combines customized products and services with local energy incentives to maximize energy efficiency and savings for customers. Graybar guides each customer through the process of auditing, designing, implementing, installing and commissioning the project through completion. Graybar can also finance the project through Graybar Financial Services®.


Jeff Kelley of Ameren Missouri reviewed the goals of Ameren’s Future for Energy Efficiency, including the investment of $147 million toward reducing the amount of energy used by their customers by 800 million kWh. These savings will be generated through standard or custom retrofits and upgrades to current facilities and new construction, with cost incentives offered to businesses to make these changes.


M360’s Sam Welge explained the value of retro-commissioning (RCx), a process for improving an existing building’s performance by identifying and implementing relatively low-cost operational and maintenance improvements. The goal of RCx is for building systems to perform interactively to meet the Current Facility Requirements and provide the tools to support the continuous improvement of system performance over time.

Energy Summits will be hosted by Graybar in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and northern California later in 2013. If you have any questions about how Graybar can help your business take advantage of Ameren’s energy incentives and decrease energy costs, contact your local Graybar representative.
