Small Industrial projects are different from conventional custom projects in three key aspects:
- Technical Service Provider studies are typically not provided
- Trade Allies are often involved in the development and data collection
- The Energy Smart Industrial Partner (ESIP) will hand off the analysis and administrative tasks to the Small Industrial engineer, while still being involved with the project
To qualify, a Small Industrial project should have an estimated energy systems of less than 200,000 kWh, and address common equipment such as air compressors, pumps, or fans that use 10 – 50 percent more energy than necessary due to equipment age, suboptimal components, or inherently inefficient part-load controls. Incentives may be available to help cover the cost of replacing the equipment and controls with more efficient alternatives.
Small Industrial projects cover a wide range of equipment, including:
- Compressed air
- Variable Frequency Drives
