THE CARE SOLUTION

The CARE Services program is a comprehensive solution tailored to our customer’s specific needs. After a comprehensive consultation and evaluation we present a customized solution that will fit their requirements. These are some of the capabilities we can provide.

 

The CARE for Energy Program

One of the first steps in controlling energy costs is developing a strategic energy conservation plan that provides an overall “framework” for reducing energy usage and costs.

There are four essential components to such a plan…Commit, Assess, Reduce and then Envision your future progress. The CARE for Energy program helps you stay on track to reach your goals by guiding you through each step of the process and more importantly it also measures the results of those efforts. By implementing the CARE for Energy program, you can achieve sustainable energy savings year after year. The CARE for Energy monitoring service package provides the customer with Energy Specialists (ES) to assist with analyzing and optimizing their buildings performance. Each package is tailored to the individual client’s needs and budget to help them assure reaching their goals.

 Even with the best of tools, there is only so much one person can do in a day. Therefore the CARE for Energy program provides trained energy specialists to help supplement the work being done by your facility manager. Our Energy Specialists are the extra set of trained professionals watching out for your facilities and making sure they are performing the most energy efficient way possible. They analyze the facility and identify where energy conservation measures can be implemented and then evaluate the results once completed.

 Through the implementation of a CARE for Energy program, you can accomplish the following:

  • Balance Energy Costs with Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Provide Sustainable Building Operations and Savings
  • Monitor Utility usage in real-time
  • Compare energy consumption, demand levels and other utility data of facilities
  • Use our Facility Assessments determine where to direct resources
  • Fund ECM costs from existing operating/utility budgets
  • Pay for additional facility improvement measures from savings

  

Technical solutions

The CARE for Energy engineers will schedule a bi-annual inspection of a building’s systems and tune them prior to entering the heating and cooling seasons.  The customer then receives a full report describing the current status of the building, any energy improvements made, and any recommendations for optimal management. Another key savings strategy is to adjust the facility schedules and set points to take advantage of summer, spring and Holiday low occupancy periods. During these times the building equipment can be reset to allow for optimal savings while maintaining interior temperature and humidity conditions required for health and safety. Our capabilities include:

  • Scheduled Seasonal Optimization
  • Video Capture Evaluations
  • Comprehensive Utility Metering
  • Building Envelope Imaging
  • Equipment Usage Reports
  • Energy Reports Generation
  • EMS Process Tuning Utility
  • Critical Event Pop-Up Utility
