Take a second to think about all of the classroom buildings, dining halls, residence halls and athletic centers found on college campuses. Now think about how much power it takes to keep all of those building operating at full capacity. It’s pretty alarming if you ask us and for that reason, every university should be equipped with advanced power monitoring systems. Learn more about the benefits, below:

Do Universities Need Power Monitors? | Electro Industries

Increase Awareness of Energy Consumption Campus-Wide

Submeters are a critical element for measuring energy consumption. The installation of submeters has been shown to foster energy savings simply through the awareness of energy consumption they provide, which promotes the conscientious use of energy and yields savings of up to 15%.

Identify New Areas Where Energy Savings Can Be Attained

Submeters provide key energy data that allows facility engineers and financial managers to identify areas within the campus buildings that are energy inefficient and need improvement. Areas often noted to be inefficient are student housing, main campus buildings, science and technology buildings, libraries, cafeterias and leased restaurants, teaching hospitals, and campus retail stores among others that you’d probably never think of!

Meeting Energy Reduction Guidelines

Both from the standpoint of reducing costs and of improving its impact on the environment, energy reduction is a win-win situation for any educational institution. Installing EIG’s submeters as part of an energy reduction plan lets the campus community see the details of their energy use and inspires personnel and students alike to be smarter energy consumers.

For over four decades, EIG has engineered and manufactured power meters with advanced analysis capabilities. Ready to get started? Give the leaders in energy monitoring at Electro Industries/GaugeTech a call today at 866-928-7908, we’re waiting to hear from you!
