Omaha, NE (PRWEB) November 05, 2015
Bes-Tech's Digi-RTU ® was selected to be part of the Roof Top Unit (RTU) Add-on Incentive Program offered by the Rochelle Municipal Utilities (RMU) after the product successfully performed in an Illinois pilot program. The utility will give customers a rebate of $3,680 if they install a Digi-RTU® on rooftop units ranging in size from 1-20 tons.
The Digi-RTU ®, a rooftop unit controller developed by Bes-Tech for rooftop unit retrofits, achieved an energy savings of 40% in an Illinois area facility during a summer 2015 pilot program. The energy savings pilot was made possible by a grant from the American Public Power Association’s DEED (Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments) Program.
As a result of the success of the pilot program, RMU partnered with and trained Illinois HVAC contractors Anderson and C&C to be certified in the installation of the Bes-Tech product. According to materials published by the utility, a rooftop unit can qualify for inclusion in the incentive program as long as it is connected to the RMU demand management system and thus meets the summer partial curtailment requirements. Eligible rooftop units must also be in good working condition, less than 20 years old, and able to operate within design parameters. It is hoped that the incentive program will be successful in helping Illinois clients with RTUs lower their energy related costs.
