Connexion has a long history in offering energy efficient solutions to our clients.
These technologies offer customers 30-50% savings on the energy they consume to light their buildings. Coupled with lighting controls to provide enough light for the designed task, clients can be even more efficient, further reducing their operating costs through energy conversation.
Office and Manufacturing Spaces with HVAC controls and motors can take advantage of additional savings through the use of Variable Frequency Drives to increase the efficiency of their electric motors.
Indoor Lighting Solutions
Substantial Energy Savings
Facility managers and operations leaders can realize savings through a better lit facility, reduced energy expenses and lower maintenance costs.
Improved Light Quality
Improving the overall light quality for a building's space by delivering higher light levels, more evenly distributed light and improved color rendering.
Increased Worker Productivity
Studies show that better lighting can improve employee productivity and satisfaction. A well designed industrial lighting design can increase worker productivity by reducing eye fatigue and headaches.
Outdoor Lighting Solutions
Traditional parking lot lights have an average life of 20,000 hours before the lamps need to be replaced. Energy Efficient LED light fixtures have an average life of 100,000 hours. At that 100,000 hours, the LED diodes don't "burn out" but emit lower output levels, becoming less bright.
For businesses that serve customers at night, providing patrons with safe, well-lit, welcoming places to park can provide a competitive advantage. Replacing traditional parking lot lights with energy efficient, LED lighting can provide significant energy and cost savings, as well as a short payback period on the equipment investment.
Lighting Control Solutions
Lighting controls are a great way to increase the efficiency of your lighting system. In most cases they are required by local codes when improving the lighting in a given space. They respond to occupancy through 2 principle technologies (Ultrasonic & Passive Infrared) or both. Daylight harvesting technologies respond to the available light in a space and either dim a portion of all of the lighting in the space, or override to off if there is enough light when an occupants enters a well-lit space.
Facility Control Systems
Connexion can design lighting control systems that can handle individual spaces through whole floor or entire buildings. Connexion represents companies like Lutron, Leviton, Acuity, Philips, Cooper and others to design and offer the best system to meet your needs. Many of these control systems qualify for Utility Incentives. Connexion will help identify the most efficient system coupled with the most generous incentive to reduce your payback.
From commercial and industrial to retail and institutional, and across a wide variety of building types, Connexion clients have been saving money on their lighting energy costs with our energy efficient designs. Take an in-depth look at our lighting solutions and the turnkey project services we provide:
Motor Control Solutions
Controlling motors in fan or pump applications in HVAC or manufacturing process offer significant savings. Connexion can help design a motor control strategy utilizing the latest technology from industry proven partners to maximize your energy savings in these applications. Utility incentives are available for these systems than can help reduce your payback period.
HVAC System Controls
At the heart of your building are heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems to keep your employees and processes running smoothly. These systems can often benefit from variable speed drives for motors controlling fan or pump applications as well as technologies to increase the efficiency of your system through intelligent control (Building IQ).
HVAC System Commissioning
Many of these systems may need balancing or commissioning to increase their efficiencies. Since these systems consume so much energy, there are a number of Utility Incentives available for both gas and electric efficiency measures. Connexion can help recommend specific measure coupled with Utility Incentives to maximize your investment.
Energy Efficient Transformer Solutions
Dry-Type Transformer Efficiencies have doubled over the past 5 years as a result of government intervention. Although most transformers are replaced with they fail, building owners can take advantage of increase efficiency, lower noise and lower heat from new transformer designs. Connexion represents leading manufactures in transformer efficiencies and can recommend specific transformers to address potential power quality issues, reduce noise and heat from transformer operation. Utility incentives are available for a number of high performing transformers that help reduce your payback period.
micro Combined Heat & Power (mCHP) Solutions
On-site generation and heat where you need it.
Lower your power consumption and cost through Yanmar MCHP systems as they efficienty utilize up to 88% of the fuel burned for generation ? far more than ?from the grid? sources. Paybacks are relatively short when compared to other similar systems.
Works in conjuntion with your current building architecture.
Its relatively small footprint affords you the flexibility to place the unit where it works best for you. For example, the Yanmar mCHP unit can be integrated into a chiller system for building cooling or it can be used in the manufacturing facilities for process heating. These systems add value to the building by improving the buildings overall efficiency.
