Why Submeter?

As the nation's single largest energy user and a significant consumer in many areas of the country, the federal and local government is keenly aware of the need to not only conserve energy, but to invest in the reduction measures that make good business sense while, at the same time, contributing to operational efficiency and modernization. To achieve this goal, the Government established the "Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT) to give guidance in achieving fully managed electrical systems by 2012.
"By October 1, 2012, in accordance with guidelines established by the Secretary under paragraph (2), all Federal buildings shall, for the purpose of efficient use of energy and reduction in the cost of electricity used in such buildings, be metered."

Who Submeters?

Compliance with EPACT 2005 and EISA 2007 regulations and green building initiatives are particularly challenging for government facilities as each complex is unique. These complexes run the full range of building types; office, single and multi-family, plant/industrial, medical and educational. For over 25 years, agencies like DOE, GSA, DOD, VA, Postal Service and Homeland Security have employed advanced meters and submetering systems to measure entire buildings, individual tenants or areas, specific pieces of equipment or individual circuits quickly and accurately. meters are used for:

  • Whole Building Metering
  • Tenant/Departmental Cost Allocation
  • Measurement & Verification
  • Energy Management & Analysis
  • Benchmarking & Profiling
  • Building Automation System Integration

EPACT/EISA

EPACT 2005 and EISA 2007 contain several requirements that are supported by E-Mon's submetering products. These include:/p>
Section 102
Federal buildings must reduce energy use by 20% by 2015

Section 103
All federal buildings must be metered by 2012

Section 1251
Net Metering

Section 1331
Support for $1.80 federal tax deduction

Title IV, Sec. 434
