Are you measuring the amount of energy that is being used at your location? If not, you may be surprised by the amount of energy your location and/or construction project is using and in-turn the associated costs. This was the case for Seattle City Light in the recent case study DENT released.
The case study, “Seattle City Light Recovers Significant Revenue Using DENT Instruments’ ELITEpro XC & RōCoil Current Transformers,” examines how Seattle City Light recorded energy being used and bill to the appropriate parties to recover revenue. Though electrical meters are often last to be considered in construction, recording energy usage is an important factor to consider.
The Seattle City Light team purchased 12 ELITEpro XC Meters and Flexible RoCoil current sensors to provide the solution they were seeking. Since the implementation of this system in 2014, they now have 32 DENT ELITEpro XC Meters and according to the case study, “the Current Diversion and Revenue Recovery program is recovering approximately $500,000 a year for the utility.” In addition, Seattle City Light reported that efficiency and safety have increased and the ability for contractors to better schedule their projects has improved.
