Energy Management

Energy management is the process of monitoring, controlling, and conserving energy. Typically this involves the following steps:

  1. Metering energy consumption and collecting energy use data
  2. Validating metering information against utiliity records
  3. Audit your facility to find and quantify energy usage
  4. Finding energy waste and opportunities to save energy
  5. estimating how much energy each opportunity could save

With this information BCS works with our clients to target and improve those opportunities which will save energy (i.e. tackling the routine waste and replacing or upgrading the inefficient equipment). Typically we start with the best opportunities first.

BCS then tracks progress by analyzing your meter data to see how well your energy-saving efforts have worked.  Main opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  1. HVAC Controls
  2. Lighting enhancements

HVAC Controls

Implementation of HVAC control systems in a facility is a conservation project that yields both a rapid project completion – and a fast return on investment.

HVAC control systems can save 30-40% of heat/cool costs per month.

 The HVAC Control process includes:

  • Replacement of thermostats and switches with electronic sensors  
  • Temperature set-back during non-production times and moderate weather.
  • Information and training that will foster energy awareness within all levels of your organization.
  • Centralized monitoring

Benefits of Replacing Thermostats

Electronic sensors provide many benefits: increases accuracy sensing, quicker response and reduced tampering.

Benefits of Centralized Monitoring

Centralized Monitoring allows the synchronization of all heat/cool equipment via a single, user-friendly computer.  The central system allows you to:

  • control areas by zone,
  • spot problems early,
  • view run times by piece (allowing you to schedule maintenance),
  • decrease energy usage during off hour and demand peak rates

Rebate Programs

EPAct federal tax deductions and utility Incentive/Rebate Programs are currently covering up to 70% of total project cost.


Lighting upgrades are considered a "low-hanging fruit" energy-efficiency project as the upgrade yields a rapid transition to energy savings.  Effective lighting solutions include design and installation of fixtures with:

  • high-efficiency ratings
  • longer bulb-life
  • less carbon emissions
  • special task lighting
  • motion sensors

Benefits of Bulb Replacement

High-efficiency bulbs substantially reduce energy load. Imost cases you can save 40-70% of current lighting energy costs.  You can reduce maintenance costs replace obsolete fixtures that are no longer in existence.

The light spectrum of current bulbs has been proven to be better for the employee safety and productivity, which leads to better product quality.

And current outdoor lighting is designed to provide a better overall appearance to your facility.

Bebefitgs of Longer Life Lighting Bulbs

Longer bulb-life equates to less maintenance costs.

Benefits of Lower Carbon Emissions

less carbon emissions = better for the environment.

Benefits of Task Lighting

Task lighting enables improved control of lighting levels – lighting designed for the task at hand.

Benefits of Motion Sensors

Motion sensors eliminate manual lighting controls

Rebate Programs

Current EPAct Federal Tax deductions and Utility Incentive and Rebate Programs are currently covering up to 50% of total lighting upgrade project costs.
