At it’s plant in Aguascalientes, Mexico, the monthly energy bill averaged $400,000 MXN per month, and management wanted to gain control of their energy use by identifying equipment with energy inefficiencies.
After considering several solutions, Calsonic installed our energy monitoring system Eniscope with the aim of reducing costs and better understanding energy consumption. The installation covered 18 circuits. This allowed management to precisely monitor and analyze energy use at the equipment level, then target accurately the required changes and savings. The real-time data gave Calsonic Kansei the power to instantly change behavior and practices to reduce waste. The first 18 circuits have produced annual savings of $120,000 MXN through low and no cost energy efficiency improvements. The system is now highlighting further areas where energy saving options and devices can be targeted in the most effective way.
