### Transcript

• 1. “ Helping Customers Discover Energy Solutions” Keys to Energy Management
• 2. Keys to Energy Management
• Know how much energy is used
• Know when energy is used
• Know where energy is used
• Know the electricity rate schedule
• Practice simple energy management techniques
www.eDiscoveri.com
• 3.
• 4. Terminology
• Voltage – Volts (V)
• Current – Amps (A)
• Resistance – Ohms (R)
• Power – Watts (W)
• Ohms Law
• kW – kilowatt
• kWh – kilowatt hour
• Power Factor
• kVA – kilovolt ampere
• rkVA – reactive kilovolt ampere
• CDD – Cooling Degree Day
• HDD – Heating Degree Day
• On-Peak Hours
• Off-Peak Hours
www.eDiscoveri.com
• 5. Power P (watts) = V (volts) x A (amps) A (amps) = P (watts) / V (volts) www.eDiscoveri.com
• 6. KW
• W (watt) x 1,000 = KW (kilowatt)
• Demand
• Rate at which energy is used
• W = V x A
www.eDiscoveri.com
• 7. KWH
• KW (kilowatt) x Time (hours) = KWH (kilowatt – hour)
• Energy consumed during a period of time
www.eDiscoveri.com
• 8. Distribution
• Typical voltage: 13.2 kV, 34.5 kV
• Right of Way/Easements
• Tree Trimming
• Storms
• Vehicle Accidents
• Safety

• 10.
• 11. Metering
• Electric Meter, or Watt-hour Meter, an instrument that measures the amount of electric energy used by a consumer.
• The meter is calibrated in kilowatt-hours.
• One kilowatt-hour is the amount of electric energy required to provide 1,000 watts of power for a period of one hour.
• Ten 100-watt light bulbs left on for one hour consume one kilowatt-hour of electric energy.
www.eDiscoveri.com
• 12. Analog Meters
• Five dials
• The basic unit of measure of electric power is the watt.
• One thousand watts are called a kilowatt.
• If you use one thousand watts of power in one hour you have used a kilowatt-hour (kWh).
www.eDiscoveri.com
• 13. Digital Meters
• Meter automatically scrolls through several different displays.
• Each display remains on screen for three to five seconds.
• These displays will show your kilowatt-hour usage, date and time and other network and diagnostic information
