Many Lumen Global clients opt for ongoing monitoring (our proprietary “LumenSmart” system) of their energy consumption because our experts typically find additional ways to save energy. We monitor consumption on an ongoing basis and then have the data to see how to decrease usage and spending.
The top three reasons to use LumenSmart:
- No out-of-pocket cost. Lumen pays for all installation and materials needed to get up and running.
- To know how to cut energy costs over time, data is power.
- If energy increases over time, LumenSmart detects the changes so our experts can slow or stop them.
How LumenSmart Works:
- Engineers run an analysis of your facility to see the main electricity consuming areas.
- Small sensors are then attached to the wires that feed into your facility.
- Lumen monitors usage to get a baseline electrical consumption number.
- Data is transmitted every few minutes to a cloud-based software system.
- Lumen analyzes this data to drive equipment efficiencies and lower electricity consumption.
- Clients have no upfront costs and typical electric bill savings range from 10 % to 30% and sometimes more, depending on recommended strategies.
