Paralleling Switchgear for Generators and Microgrids

Power Precision builds paralleling switchgear with controls that synchronize and connect generators and microgrids to the utility.

Synchronize hydro, diesel, landfill gas, hydrogen, solar, wind or other electrical sources of energy together and with the grid.

Connect generators in parallel with the electrical utility supply and operate the generator at a set KW output.

Change traditional transfer switches to synchronizing switchgear.

Generators can provide savings on electricity bills by "peak shaving" the KW demand charge. 

The same generator can be used for backup power and electricity savings.  

 

Reducing KW demand by 1000 KW in 1 month can result in over $150,000 in savings in 1 year !

A backup generator can generate savings to pay for the installation!

A demand charge of $14.55 per KW reduced by 1000 KW is $14,550 in savings in 1 month. The large industrial rate schedule applies 90% of the KW demand in Jan, Feb, March, Dec to all 12 months. Which means KW demand savings can be applied in other months without operating the generator.

A reduction of the KW demand by 1000 KW in 1 winter month can provide savings of $158,595 in 1 year! ($14,500 + 11 x 90% x $14,500)

In addition, the NB Power Peak Rebate Program offers $20/KW of demand reduction in ADDITION to the typical peak demand charges above.  This corresponds to an addtional $20,000 per season for 1000 KW demand reduction.
