With that event over, now it’s time to start marking your calendars for our fall session, which will cover advanced lighting issues in detail. No date has been set, but the event will be held in September or October. Watch this space for more information.
Use Steam Trap Summary form when applying for incentives
March 22, 2017 – Remember to use our new summary form when testing and repairing or replacing stream traps. The Excel-based form allows you to select from several options: Reservation vs. Final application; Pre-trap condition (operating properly, failed open/leaking, failed closed, plugged, other); and Post-trap condition (n/a, repaired, replaced).
The form is available for download under the 2017 Documents dropdown (at left).
Project of the Month is about Ford Field
March 22, 2017 – Energy efficiency has been scoring big at Ford Field: Over the last year, the team at CI Engineering Solutions has completed 11 projects at the facility. Nearly 1,000 lights were installed throughout the venue, with outdated metal halides, T8 lamps and HID lighting being replaced by LED lights. The upgrades will improve overall guest experience and achieve energy savings.
Ford Field received more than $24,000 in DTE Energy incentives, and they are expected to save an estimated 380,000 in annual kWh consumption, and nearly $45,00 in annual energy costs.
