Bes-Tech, Inc., developer of the Digi-RTU®, the most innovative and energy efficient aftermarket rooftop HVAC unit control package on the market, announces the installation of 29 Digi-RTU® HVAC rooftop optimization kits at the corporate headquarters of Werner Enterprises, Inc. located in Omaha, NE.

The 29 installed units (equal to 293 tons) are expected to achieve the following annual energy savings and reductions:

kWh        565,000    -51%
kW        147        -33%
Therm    9,200    -17%

The Omaha Public Power District provided a kW incentive for the 147 kW reduction in peak demand.

As the winner of the 2011 American Public Power Association’s DEED Energy Innovator Award, the Digi-RTU® has been shown to be the most innovative and energy efficient rooftop HVAC unit control package on the market. It has a proven track record of reducing energy consumption and demand by greater than 65% with a typical ROI of 1 to 3 years. The Digi-RTU® is a simple plug-n-save solution for existing RTUs that enables building owners to increase the efficiency of existing and new rooftop units.

  •     Reduced electricity consumption by up to 65%
  •     Reduced peak electricity demand by up to 65%
  •     Reduced compressor on/off cycling by up to 75%
  •     Improved equipment life span
  •     Reduced equipment noise
  •     Improved temperature and humidity control
