The Results

The customer applied for the save ON energy RETROFIT Program, funded by the IESO and received $7,263 as a project incentive. The projected savings of up to 25% was exceeded with 34% annual consumption reduction. SensorSuite’s SuiteHeat solution is saving this housing approximately $14,190 per year with a ROI of 2.65 years.

SensorSuite has been providing free save ON energy Business program support to business customers since 2012. This includes acting as the Application Representative for any business customers seeking incentives for completing electricity saving retrofit projects in collaboration with SensorSuite.

SensorSuite Matrix™ Platform

Installed 2017

SensorSuite® installed its SensorSuite Matrix™ gateway and 66 EM1 Wireless Energy Management controllers on every electric baseboard heater unit in the facility. Every controller had a temperature sensor and power sensor. After two initial weeks of gathering baseline data, the controllers were set to function in Demand Management mode. EM1 Energy Management controllers perform demand management intelligently by enabling electrical loads to communicate and coordinate with one another, thereby reducing the number of loads running at the same time. The system’s proprietary SensorSuite Matrix™ platform allowed for significant reductions in electrical demand while maintaining occupant comfort. The controllers also did this automatically, eliminating all intervention from the facility employees.
