Green Energy Solutions for Buildings

--Building Automation:

Our building automation systems give you more control and easy access to information. It incorporates open systems technologies of both the building automation and the information technologies industries. Johnson Controls Facility Explorer provides industry-leading Web accessibility beyond just the supervisory level, allowing you to see and act on vital systems information from more places than most other systems have access to. This high level of visibility means you can resolve problems faster, maintaining occupant comfort and minimizing deviations from energy saving strategies.

Johnson Controls Facility Explorer offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Reduced operating costs
  • Preserved system investments
  • Reduced time to install and commission
  • Increased equipment life
  • Lowered maintenance costs
  • Quick problem identification
  • Improved staff efficiency

--Fan-Pump Green Energy Technology:

Variable frequency drives (VFD) are reliable electronic devices that control three-phase electric motor speed. They are used in building automation applications to control the speed of fans and pumps in various systems.

Variable Frequency Drives reduce costs by:

  1. Reduce power used
    • Without VFD facilities will install capacitor banks which cleans up the power and saves approx 3-5%. VFD does same job plus benefits below.
  2. Save on wear and tear on equipment
  3. You do not peak the demand meter
    • When you start a 3 phase motor it runs at LRA (approx 3 times RLA) for about 3 seconds and then settles down at RLAs. Commercial customers are billed per peak demand. A VFD ramps up the start so that you never go above the RLA.

Most VFD installations will pay for themselves quickly, normally payback will occur in less than three years, usually within 12-18 months.
