Submetering challenges for commercial properties
With all the benefits of submetering, it’s an obvious goal for buildings old and new. The caveat is knowing where to begin. Identifying the most promising tenants, systems, or equipment to submeter, without the information from submetering, is almost impossible to do. A qualified energy expert can help you analyze your current usage and compare it against your facility to decide which equipment makes the most sense to monitor.
After installation of your submetering equipment, the real data analysis begins. Multiple streams of information about your electricity usage empowers you investigate and discover why, for instance, your HVAC system is consuming an unusual amount of electricity at night or on weekends. With this detailed information, you can make strategic changes in your building’s controls to eliminate this type of waste.
