Energy Efficiency Opportunities

Variable Frequency Drives

With variable frequency drives, motors can run at pre-determined speeds to optimize system requirements and energy efficiency performance on fans and pumps. Annual chiller energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by as much as 30% since lower compressor speed causes reduced wear. Systems can be programmed to run at times that take advantage of off-peak energy rates. Incentives are available from utilities companies.
