Engineered Energy Solutions (EES) merges operations with Integrated Control Solutions (ICS) to drive excellence and client support in the design, engineering and installation of energy efficient automation and control systems for the commercial building and transportation sectors.
Save on energy resources by utilizing a heat-recovery chiller or DX compressors
Running an air handler in “dehumidification” mode tends to be a resource hog. First, you are using a lot of chilled water to *squeeze* the ever-living-moisture out of the air, then you have to reheat it to make the air temperature comfortable. A double expenditure of energy: cooling and heating.
Lighting based on time clocks can sometimes feel like it’s a draining the life out of your wallet. EES tackles this problem with a simple, closed-loop control solution.
It has become common practice to build underground or under-building parking lots for facilities. Each structure requires a CO monitoring system that jumps in to action when the level of CO gas becomes too high. Every one of these systems requires periodic (semi-annual) calibration and testing to protect the patrons and the building owners.
Sunday, March 12th, we'll 'spring forward' an hour on our clocks. Soon, Congress is going to vote to put to rest the yo-yoing of clocks twice a year. If and when it does become law, we will be staying this way "forever." But is this a good or a bad thing?
When you retrofit Rockwell SLC Hardware that has reached it’s end of life, you transform old equipment to perform like new again.

I guess the old saying “what goes around, comes around” if you wait long enough, is true in the controls industry as well. We had for many years, a large telecommunications client for whom we had installed PLC-based building controls in the late eighties. The client was forward thinking in regards to the energy consumed by their 2.2 million square-foot R&D facility. Having the innovative corporate culture that fueled hundreds of patents per year, they recognized the rewards we were offering with our new (at the time) PLC-based energy control system. Back in the day, no one was applying PLCs to central utility plants and major air handling systems like we were and after a review of the numbers, they took a chance. After completing the installation, we saved them $500,000 per year with a return on investment in under two years. When the project ultimately lead to the client winning an award from the State of New Jersey for energy management, we had a client for life.
