As individuals, parents, family members, and professionals, the impacts of the coronavirus, both physical and economic, are of great concern to us all. The daily news of canceled events, closed public facilities and travel restrictions prompt us to ask ourselves how we should proceed.
This past January, the entire Ally Energy Solutions team assembled in San Marcos, California to attend the company’s annual meeting. The meeting, entitled the Enterprise View of Energy, featured three days of educational talks, team building activities, and networking opportunities, that provided a chance for all team members to gather together and learn more about Ally’s long-term approach to energy efficiency as it applies to the company’s ever-growing portfolio of projects.
Ally Energy Solutions is honored to receive the SRP Business Solutions FY2019 Top Contributor Award. This award is given to the top three Energy Efficiency Alliance members that deliver the highest kWh/kW savings to SRP’s custom business program. The award recognizes Ally’s work upgrading and optimizing industrial refrigeration systems for an Arizona manufacturer, resulting in 3,267,000 kWh in annual energy savings. The project also received more than $300,000 in SRP incentives.
By and large, energy efficiency projects all have similar objectives – improve operational safety and work environment, save energy and money, and streamline processes. The types of projects are also similar – LED lighting and sensor retrofits, automated control systems, energy monitoring, data acquisition and analytics, and so on. But when it gets down to on-site design and implementation, the similarities end. Each individual project is both complex and unique. Because of this, designs must be fluid and focused on the energy and operational result. That’s why Ally Energy Solutions employs experts like LEED accredited electrical engineer and industrial controls expert, Ross Smith.
