SP REPLACES OLD INFRASTRUCTURE WITH NEW ENERGY SAVING EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY

BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Products
HVAC Intelligence Controls | Smart Thermostats | Solar Water Heater | Double Pane Glass | Advanced Wall / Ceiling Insulation
Impact
Natural gas systems that are eligible for LEED certification Rating System Points include: high efficiency boilers, furnaces, and waterheaters; high efficiency energy recovery systems; high efficiency food service equipment; and desiccant regeneration systems. Heating and cooling are the largest energy users in commercial buildings, often times setting higher rates and demand charges.
The verifiable abundance, affordability and favorable environmental qualities of natural gas makes it the only domestic energy source capable of simultaneously increasing our energy security, decreasing our dependence upon imported oil, and reducing emissions of pollutants.

EFFICIENT LIGHTING

Products
LED Fixtures | Occupancy Sensors | Dimming | Directional Lighting
Impact
Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States. By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.

CLEAN WATER

Products
Sewer Pumps | Gravity Sewer and Force Mains | Flow Metering | Geographical Information System (GIS) | Automated/CCTV Gravity Sewer Inspection
Impact
Contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to transmission of diseases. Absent, inadequate, or inappropriately managed water and sanitation services expose individuals to preventable health risks. Inadequate management of urban, industrial, and agricultural wastewater means the drinking-water of hundreds of millions of people is dangerously contaminated or chemically polluted. Climate change, increasing water scarcity, population growth, demographic changes and urbanization already pose challenges for water supply systems. By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. Re-use of wastewater, to recover water, nutrients, or energy, is becoming an important strategy. Increasingly countries are using wastewater for irrigation. Storm water management is in many cases, a flood control rather than a quality control program. In many existing urbanized areas, the cost of infrastructure changes necessary to retrofit existing storm water drainage systems with structural BMPs–to provide for storm water quality as well as quantity control–can be prohibitively expensive.

HVAC

Products
Cooling Towers | Economizers | Air Handlers | Heat Pumps | Smart thermostats | RTU’s
Impact
Upgrades to HVAC systems can save energy due to increases in efficiency and changes in usage. Technologies now exist to pre-condition air moving through standard HVAC systems that greatly reduce the power requirements for final conditioning and also add to fresh air exchange. Smart controls and remote monitoring, along with optimization software can transform an inefficient building HVAC system to a more efficient system that provides better comfort at lower cost.

MOTORS

Products
VFD’s | ECM | Pumps | Induction
Impact
Replacement of old motors in many applications with new technologies such as VFD’s, ECM, Induction, etc. reduce power requirements due to the improved efficiency of the newer technology. Variable speed motors in pumping applications such as swimming pools, ponds, and other bodies of water allow for proper water turnover at lower speeds while still providing necessary cleaning at higher speeds.

POWER CONDITIONING & STORAGE

Products
Demand Charge (Stem) | Conditioning | Peak Storage | Batteries | Ultracaps
Impact
Power Conditioning and Storage upgrades help level load and peak requirements across the board as well as prevent damage to equipment.

WASTE TO VALUE / ENERGY

Products
Organic Food | Bio Digester | Waste to SynGas | Biofuel Dispensing | BioDiesel
Impact
There are a number of emerging technologies that are able to produce energy from waste and other fuels without direct combustion. Many of these technologies have the potential to produce more electric power from the same amount of fuel than would be possible by direct combustion.

CLEAN ENERGY GENERATION

Products
Solar Syngas Generator | Natural Gas Engine | Micro Turbine Electricity Generation | Fuel Cell CoGen
Impact
Natural gas is unique among our energy choices because we have vast domestic supplies – and underutilized capacity – that is ready now to play a growing role generating cleaner, affordable electricity for America’s homes and businesses. Current natural gas generation capacity is underutilized and natural gas is a highly attractive choice for building new capacity. Natural gas is also a strong complement to renewable energy – providing reliable power when the wind isn’t blowing or the sun isn’t shining.

CLEAN TRANSPORTATION

Products
Garbage Trucks | Compression Station | Charging Station | Fleet management & optimization
Impact
The United States imported about 45% of the petroleum it consumed, and transportation accounted for more than 70% of total U.S. petroleum consumption. Replacing just 7% of the oil used in the U.S. each year with natural gas would save consumers $25.6 billion a year. That works out to $130.61 per licensed driver every year. The number is meaningful, but remember: That’s generated by replacing only 7% of oil used with natural gas. If half of the current amount of oil used was replaced with natural gas, you’re looking at $182.9 billion a year, or nearly $1,000 per year per driver.
