FAQs

What is the most effective way to reduce my energy costs?

Carry out a comprehensive energy audit that will determine what your property requires to be energy efficient.


What types of systems expend the most energy dollars?

Air-conditioning, motors, lighting and heating.


What services does Eco-Watt provide?

We offer customized turnkey solutions, including a comprehensive energy audit, motor treat- ment, lighting  retrofit, air conditioning performance enhancement, power quality assurance, positive cash flow results and verified and bonded performance.


How much will it cost for Eco-Watt to evaluate our company?

Initially, nothing! Eco-Watt will come to your facility, free of charge, and evaluate the opportunity to lower your energy costs. We place your parameters into our modeling software to obtain an initial estimate of potential energy costs savings. This will give you and us the ability to determine if an energy cost savings project will meet your expectations.

Our next step is to complete a detailed engineering design. There is a fee for this step; the cost depends on your facility and the data previously collected during our free walk-through


How much will a new Eco-Watt energy saving system cost?

Eco-Watt designs its systems within your financial and savings constraints. A typical project will provide a payback in 2 to 3 years, with ROIs of 33%TO 50%.


What technologies do you use to lower energy costs?

Eco-Watt uses several types of technologies, depending on your needs. We work with established manufacturers and distributors of technologies that improve electrical efficiencies for equipment, air-conditioning, refrigeration and lighting. Once the engineering and design phase is complete, we will know what technologies will work best for you.


In what types of industries are these energy saving products installed?

All types. Large industrial, small industrial, hotel, automotive, government, public works, warehouse storage, distribution and commercial buildings. Electricity behaves the same regardless of industry. What ís important is that we understand your environment and operating conditions so we can design an approach that works best for you.


If we have already taken steps such as Power Factor correction, can we still experience energy cost savings?

Absolutely. We address your facility ís power quality and electrical distribution losses. Normally, power factor correction is conducted at your utility meter, which does not improve your electrical efficiency or deal with power quality issues. Eco-Watt deals with equipment, air conditioning, refrigeration, and lighting losses. We will save you money regardless of power factor correction at the main electrical entrance.


How is Eco-Watt different from other energy savings companies?

Eco-Watt works with manufacturers and distributors who are recognized as well-established leaders in their respective fields over decades. In addition to the diverse range of energy saving technologies at its disposal, Eco-Watt ís resources include electrical engineering, and professionals accredited by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA).

All our energy savings projects are guaranteed and may be underwritten by a third-party insurer.

Eco-Watt ís passive technology does not require maintenance or special training to operate, so you íll save money, eliminate additional lifecycle costs and experience no disruption of operation during installation of your project.


Can we finance this project from savings?

Yes. Our approach is to present a financially attractive project that meets your financial, energy savings and environmental goals. We can introduce a financial partner who will offer projectfunding in line with your requirements.


What effect do your technologies have on equipment downtime and operation?

Our technologies are passive, meaning that they will not harm your existing equipment. Rather, they enhance the operation, extend the life and minimize maintenance costs. Our technologies are installed in parallel so any outage will not affect your equipment operation.


How does Eco-Watt prove that its systems are saving money?

Measurement and verification are an essential part of the work we perform; our business is based on saving you money. Eco-Watt establishes a measurement and verification protocol for your facility that complies with the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).

The IPMVP was established by a network of energy professionals and national organizations (including the U.S. Environmental Protection Association) from over 25 countries for the purpose of standardizing the methods by which energy conservation projects are measured and verified.


Do the energy cost saving products and services you provide meet with national and international standards?

Yes, the products have been installed worldwide and conform to all national and international standards on equipment and installation practices.


What are the lifecycle costs for this system?

None. Our systems are passive in nature and require no additional training or maintenance to operate.


We have a co-generation system on site;can you still lower our energy costs?

Yes. Our technologies improve the efficiency of your distribution system and thus will allow you to use less electricity or enable you to sell more back to the power company.
