Demand Control

In July 2015 Richmond Industries purchased and installed a demand management system from Powerit Solutions located in Seattle Washington. The Spara unit uses sophisticated load prediction and control algorithms, built in load shedding intelligence along with data drawn from our furnaces, utility meter and transmissions to optimize our facility energy use. The system utilizes integrated hardware and software that is connected to Richmond Industries power cabinets allowing for greater automation of its melting systems. This system along with a web based interface enables real time reporting and remote monitoring of our energy consumption.
