Ekster and Associates Consulting Services Uncover Opportunities for Improvements and Savings
We have proven time and again that simple, inexpensive changes in operating procedures and process control can provide the same benefits as larger capital expenditures.
- Optimization of start/stop schedule and speeds of the VFD motors at just one pump station saved more than $50,000 in energy bills (30% reduction) and considerably reduced carbon footprint of that facility.
- Our energy audit at one plant identified energy savings opportunities worth more than a million dollars a year with a payback period of one month - the equivalent of reducing CO2 emissions by more than a thousand tons a year.
- A change in operating procedures saved another, smaller plant half a million dollars a year in fines paid for frequent NPDES violations.
