According to Energy Star, United States healthcare facilities spend over $6.5 billion on energy costs every year! This includes hospitals, urgent care centers, nursing homes, and elder-care facilities, and this number is expected to keep growing.

If you are in charge of running a healthcare facility, do you know how much energy you are using? With EIG’s world-class power meters, you could! For 40 years, Electro Industries/GaugeTech has manufactured high-quality power monitoring systems to help facilities everywhere track and reduce their energy consumption.

We have worked with hospitals and other medical facilities all over the world to help them with their energy needs – here are just some of the ways that our power meters can help your healthcare facilities:

  • Accurately monitor power consumption. Through the use of our power meters, you can track how much energy your facility is using. Take this a step further by installing submeters, which allow you to further pinpoint your consumption down to specific departments, floors, or machines.

  • Identify areas where energy savings and be attained. Using data gathered from our power meters, you can analyze critical information and identify inefficiencies. On average, our products can help you reduce your energy consumption by 15%!

  • Implement and track energy savings programs. Once you have determined where you are wasting power, you can design and implement an energy-savings program for your facility. Better yet, you can even use our meters to track the progress of your program to see how successful it is!

  • Analyze power quality to improve system reliability. In a medical facility, one small blip in the power supply could be the difference between life and death. Our meters also function as power quality analyzers, meaning you can ensure that you are receiving reliable power where it matters most.


So what do you need to get started? Here is what a typical bill of materials looks like for a standard healthcare facility:

  • Nexus 1500 Advanced Power Quality Analyzer and Energy Meter

  • Shark 200 Data-Logging Energy Meter for Load Profiling

  • MP200 Metering System – 8 Three-Phase Input Meters

  • CommunicatorEXT4.0 Software for data collection and analysis

  • EnergyReporter EXT 4.0 Software for usage reports
