Lighting & Energy Management Proposal
I worked on an energy management proposal for the California Rural Indian Health Board that will guide the installation of some simple systems to reduce energy usage, improve the economic operation of the facilities, and help maintain a energy management program for a health care campus. As an electrical engineer and a system engineering graduate, and after working with contractors in the local area, I observed the need for an energy management and energy consumption program applied to the Tule River Health Program. After talking with the maintenance manager, and the CFO, I conclude that the system as it is currently designed uses energy in an inefficient manner. This results higher energy cost for the multiple buildings on the campus of the healthcare program.
The initial plan of this proposed project is to install a wireless building automation system known as BACnet. The BACnet system provides many functions in building automation. The critical function to this project is the ability to monitor real time energy consumption and present the data gathered by field sensors to a networked server. With this data energy levels can be monitored and areas of energy consumption can be identified and reduced.
