For years the Bruner Performance Solutions Group (PSG) has been saving our customers boat loads of money by evaluating their energy consumption and developing a mechanical solution to their excessive energy use. In 2011, Bruner PSG saved our customers 2,431,986 kWH. By submitting 60 applications throughout the course of the year to AEP’s gridSMART program, our customers received more than $300,000 in incentives.
I know what you’re thinking. “That all seems really great, in theory, but how much time am I going to have to put into this?” or maybe, “How do I know if doing an energy conservation program is going to be worth it?” Those are all great questions, and we’ve got the answers!
The implementation of your program can be started in three easy steps:
- Develop an energy analysis.
The Bruner PSG team performs supply and demand side analysis from your utility bills, evaluating current conditions (usually from two historic years), and then assembles projections.
- Provide a feasibility study.
From surveys of equipment, systems, and operations, the Bruner PSG team provides a study of the feasible solution to reduce consumption costs.
- Provide an investment grade audit to implement the program.
With approval of the feasibility study, final implementation cost and specific plans are provided to enact, administer, and implement improvements.
And guess what else? You can enter a program where the up-front analysis costs can be deferred or waived altogether based on the project and level of implementation chosen, making your investment nearly risk-free and all the more rewarding.
So take action with us, and together we can reduce consumption and make the world a greener place!
