Plug Smart has extensive experience working in commercial and industrial facilities and providing energy reduction solutions. This approach combines our expertise in the areas of controls, lighting, HVAC systems, and mechanical systems. We leverage the future energy savings and operational savings of the proposed building upgrades to pay for the project over time.
Not all energy services or design-build project firms are set up to handle heavy-duty process industrial projects. However, this is right where attention is needed, given that commercial and industrial buildings represent 50% of US energy consumption, at a cost of over $400 billion per year. Plug Smart’s commercial and industrial team knows their way around the complex and sometimes hazardous environments of large manufacturing and distribution facilities, and can tackle that number to help your bottom line.
Plug Smart’s engineers work relentlessly to find every opportunity to improve efficiencies, recover energy and reduce wasted energy, while creating a more worker-friendly and productive environment. Some Plug Smart clients have saved upwards of 35% of facility operation costs and generate their own power recovered from on-site processes. Plus, to reduce risk of shutdown or production losses, we can coordinate a live switch for any equipment replacement.
