  • 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
    • Load 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
    • Overhead vs. Underground
    • Right of Way/Easements

  • 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
    • Digital readout
    • 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
    www.eDiscoveri.com
  • 14. Metering
    • Meter Reading Schedule – 2011
    • Meter Reading
    • Contact Closures
