College Park, Georgia (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
IP UtiliNET, a next-generation technology firm offering site solutions in 145 countries, has developed the IP UtiliNET Circuit Monitoring System (CMOS), which has helped a College Park restaurant owner reduce energy consumption by 30 percent while doubling the restaurant’s daily sales volume. CMOS provides real-time updates on energy consumption patterns and alternative energy generation so property owners and managers can make changes to increase energy efficiency.
“I was impressed with IP UtiliNET’s circuit monitoring solution because it gave me the historical data I needed to determine which equipment was consuming the most electrical energy. Our café is all electric, and I needed to lower my energy bill,” said Lizette Hernandez, owner of Club e Café and Bistro of College Park. “I worked with IP UtiliNET to measure the energy consumption by equipment type and then matched the data to actual revenue. By working together, we determined that the some products were not generating enough sales to justify the cost of keeping the equipment operational. We made decisions to replace most of the existing equipment, which led to menu additions. Over the last three months our energy consumption has decreased, sales and revenue have doubled, and we are working on making additional equipment changes.”
CMOS is a direct current (DC) Microgrid and alternative energy-compliant solution that detects energy consumption patterns and alternative power generation by the minute, day and month. Accessible 24x7 from anywhere with an Internet connection, the electrical circuit monitoring device is a secure, web-based auditing sub-metering system providing real-time visibility into frequency and duration of energy consumption at the circuit level. CMOS can be incorporated into commercial, industrial and business environments and operates at the breaker panel or individual circuit breaker level, from 120 Volts (standard) to 480 Volts alternating current (AC). CMOS can handle 50/60 hertz AC, as well as 15, 20 and 30 amp circuits and accommodates single phase, split phase, and 3-phase systems.
CMOS can serve as a consultative tool for improved business analysis and results. It is an electrical sub-metering and billing device as well as an analytical tool to determine energy consumption at the circuit level. In addition, it is a safety and risk reduction tool that can be used to guard against electrical overloads.
“We are offering CMOS to our clients to provide them with historical data as well as a second-by-second perspective on energy use. The accumulated data enables them to make sound decisions on whether they should incorporate energy-efficient solutions to reduce energy consumption and improve OpEx,” said IP UtiliNET CEO David Quinn. “In the case of the restaurant owner, we were able to show her where consumption patterns were highest, compare the data to the sales volume and make recommendations to reduce power consumption by replacing those pieces of equipment that were not generating the desired revenue.”
