Continuous Optimization

DSC_0090

SES Consulting is a qualified member of the Power Smart Alliance and an approved Consultant for the Continuous Optimization Program, with extensive experience working in conjunction with BC Hydro energy conservation programs. Over time, building systems do not operate as optimally as they could and will use more energy than they should in order to satisfy occupant comfort and lighting requirements.  This program aims to identify activities that attempt to reduce energy use through the identification and implementation of low-cost operational and maintenance changes.
