the seminary to save over $22,000 per year on their electric bill
Fort Worth, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) February 03, 2011
U.S. Power Services Company (USPSC) recently won the contract to install power factor correction capacitors at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. USPSC installed power factor correction capacitors in 9 buildings on campus for a savings of $22,190 annually or the equivalent of two months of free electrical service a year.
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is located in Fort Worth, Texas and began in 1908 on the campus of Baylor University. In 1910 it was moved to its current location on Seminary Hill. In 1925 it was placed under the direction of the Southern Baptist Convention. The early part of the twenty-first century has seen the seminary expanding its educational program into three new schools: in 2004 the Houston extension campus became a full degree granting site and was given the name the J. Dalton Havard School for Theological Studies; in 2005 the division of evangelism and missions located in the School of Theology was reorganized and renamed the Roy J. Fish School of Evangelism and Missions; also in 2005 the College at Southwestern was founded.
Like many colleges and universities through the United States, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is looking for ways to cut costs in order to avoid creating financial hardships for existing and incoming students. The installation of power factor correction capacitors will allow the seminary to save a substantial amount of money annually in electrical service while also allowing them to perform a role in reducing the amount of carbon emissions that enter the earth’s atmosphere.
Power factor correction involves the process of installing capacitors that allow a customer’s existing system to increase its energy efficiency. Since most systems only work at approximately 75 percent efficiency, the installation of power factor correction can help a system operate at close to 100 percent efficiency thus decreasing the amount of power needed.
U.S. Power Services Company is a leading provider of power factor correction and comes equipped with a team that has over 18 years of experience. They have helped both Fortune 500 companies as well as small companies that are just looking to save money on their energy bills.
Companies can expect to save thousands of dollars in energy costs using power factor correction. For more information or to arrange for a free cost savings analysis visit their website at http://lowerenergyexpense.com/.
