Ener.co HVAC equipment retrofit saves facility $24,137 in year one in energy costs.

Project Scope

Ener.co implemented comprehensive HVAC coil energy savings retrofits and the customized, Cloud-based Energy Performance Dashboard at Actavis’ pharmaceutical laboratory.

Project Summary

In the fall of 2015, Ener.co performed its comprehensive energy saving retrofit measure on the condenser coil of 200 ton air-cooled chiller equipment at Actavis’ pharmaceutical plant located in Elizabeth, New Jersey. In this project, Ener.co upgraded the chiller’s air-cooled condenser by treating the coils with high efficiency Enercoat™ technology. Total savings was determined under M&V IPMVP® Option B Protocol. The net energy savings achieved by the coil treatment amounted to 100% of the initial energy savings projection. Treatment dramatically improved airflow, increased cooling capacity, enhanced heat transfer, improved laboratory processing conditions, and produced a permanent reduction of compressor and fan peak power consumption.

  • Energy Savings

    Annual electric savings equaled $15,342 or 109,588 kWh. Peak power demand was reduced by 12.5 kW.

  • GHG Reduction

    With this project the client reduces their annual green house gas emissions by 54 tons.

  • Investment

    Project cost including HVAC improvements and the monitoring system totaled $33,896.

  • Financial Return

    The project is on track to pay itself back completely from energy savings in 1.3 years. The facility’s decision to treat the coils has put it on track to produce an additional $229,057in energy savings over the next 10 years.

  • Other Benefits

    Improvement in cooling. Permanent peak demand reduction. Extended life of the coil assembly. Increased heat transfer efficiency. Improved thermal performance. Reduced frequency of compressor and fan motor replacement.

Hear from our clients

We value a collaborative relationship with our customers, empowering them to become educated consumers. Here is some insight from our clients who have achieved a significant savings in their energy consumption and costs.

Our company has been providing software enabled M&V solutions for energy efficiency technology companies for many years now, and I've seen an enormous amount of "before" and "after" data from energy efficiency projects. As Ener.co®'s M&V partner, I can say that Ener.co® treatments consistently produce strong improvements in efficiency and savings for their clients' facilities.
Connell McGill Co-Founder/CEO, Enertiv
Ener.co® treated two of the oldest and worst performing units we had - and the results were remarkable. They allowed us to defer having to replace the units for three and a half years. Ener.co® proved to be a no fuss, low cost solution to our very serious problem.
Brendan Farrell Resident Manager, Tribeca Tower (Related Companies)
With Ener.co® we saved ourselves about $120,000 in capital expense by treating instead of replacing the coils.
