Praxair is a Fortune 300, $9 billion global company that supplies atmospheric, process and specialty gases, high-performance coatings, and related services and technologies to a wide diversity of global customers. The management team for their New York facility was concerned about power quality issues and were seeking cost containment opportunities related to their approximate $1.2 million annual cost of electrical energy consumption for the New York facility.
EASI proposed a program involving lighting retrofits and controllers, reactive power factor correction, passive harmonic correction filters and polarized refrigerant oil additives. This resulted in an actual savings of 20 %, far exceeding the projected savings of 11.7%. It also resulted in a payback period of 30 months which was within the company’s requirement for capital cost recovery.
