Calculate energy savings online

WattStopper has launched a new energy savings calculating tool.

WattStopper has launched a free, web-based energy savings calculating tool that allows users to calculate the potential energy savings available with occupancy sensors. The Energy Calculator is designed to help users identify lighting control strategies that best match energy savings goals for retrofit or new construction projects.

The Energy Calculator provides a list of pre-defined Lighting Control Measures (LCMs) that help users compare different control methods to identify how best to achieve additional maximum energy lighting savings. LCMs include pairing an occupancy sensor with an on/off wall switch, bi-level switching, bi-level switching with Auto-on 50%, or bi-level switching using Auto-on 50% with daylighting. Energy savings%ages are based on third party published documents and research from the Dept. of Energy (DOE), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Lighting Research Center (LRC), the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC), and other industry case studies. Future versions of this tool will include calculations for plug/receptacle load control, daylighting and time-based controls.

The Energy Calculator offers two assessment levels-Quick Assessment and Full Assessment. The Quick Assessment allows users to enter a minimal amount of information and quickly calculate potential energy savings for a single room in a lighting system project with lighting controls. The Quick Assessment Summary can be printed or emailed directly from the WattStopper Energy Calculator webpage. The Full Assessment presents anticipated savings using lighting controls and updated lighting, anticipated energy usage and return on investment (ROI) for an entire building project. Users can perform this assessment for multiple projects and retain data for future reference. Reports can also be personalized for use in submittal packages and proposals.
