A network of electrical components used to supply, transmit and use electric power. An example of an electric power system is the network that supplies a region’s homes and industry with power—for sizable regions, this power system is known as the grid and can be broadly divided into the generators that supply the power, the transmission system that carries the power from the generating centres to the load centres and the distribution system that feeds the power to nearby homes and industries.

The Digi-RTU modulates the capacity of rooftop units and air/water source heat pumps to match the dynamic nature of building cooling or heating loads. As a result, energy waste is minimized and indoor comfort is improved. Because of its unique operating principles, the Digi-RTU achieves greater savings than any other

Community Microgrids

Community Microgrids

Now, with the increasing availability and cost effectiveness of distributed energy resources (DERs), more and more customers—industrial, commercial, governmental, and residential alike—are taking power generation, and even storage, into their own hands.

Benefits of Community Microgrids

Benefits of Community Microgrids

However they are defined, everyone agrees community microgrids provide benefits. Centralized utility systems and aboveground distribution lines expose customers to regional and local outages, “and while they are highly reliable, centralized utility grids can’t ensure local resilience,” notes Peter Douglass, project manager for the Microgrid Institute, a collaborative organization supporting global development of microgrids and distributed energy

Sound Attenuation for Business Energy Applications

Sound Attenuation for Business Energy Applications

Intrusive noise is a growing concern for both the public and private sector these days. If the power equipment rattles, clanks, and booms loudly, there will likely be complaints—or worse: fines and citations. Consider this: according to the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse (www.nonoise.org), 13 states have noise pollution laws, and five provide model
