Powerhouse Dynamics Introduces New, Cost-Effective Energy Management Solution for Small Commercial Operations
The eMonitor c-Series will drive costs out of business operations, increase control and improve profitability
(Boston, MA) June 29, 2011 - What large corporations have had for decades – an ability to manage their energy costs – is finally coming to small commercial users.
Powerhouse Dynamics announced today the introduction of the eMonitorTM c-Series, a cost-effective energy management solution for small commercial operations.
For businesses ranging from restaurants to health clinics, energy costs have long been the biggest “uncontrollable” expense item. With the eMonitor, a small business can now see where they are using energy and control the waste, with remote HVAC controls, benchmarking capabilities, diagnostics and alerts all contributing to reducing costs. A typical installation is expected to create energy cost savings of 10% to 20%, resulting in a return on investment of less than one year.
“Small commercial facilities use one-third more energy per square foot on average than larger facilities, and yet they typically cannot justify the expense – or the complexity – of a traditional building energy management system” said Martin Flusberg, Powerhouse Dynamics CEO. “The eMonitor c-Series changes the paradigm and targets any operation where the cost of energy is a pain point but the scale does not support a large investment”.
“My small commercial customers, including restaurants and other businesses, have been begging for an energy management solution that meets their budgets” said Tracy Markie, CEO of Engenuity, an Arizona-based provider of energy management and control solutions. “The eMonitor c-Series provides exactly what the market has been seeking, and we expect it to deliver a compelling return on investment to our customers – just as it has in my own house!”
Initial shipments of the eMonitor c-Series will begin in July.
