Mitsubishi Electric Automation has joined with Powerit Solutions to help industrial businesses reduce electricity costs and meet corporate sustainability goals.

Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s EnergyPAQ energy monitoring system gives customers all the energy data they need; Powerit’s Spara Demand Manager (Spara DM) software adds the ability to effectively manage electrical demand.

The EnergyPAQ system is ready to start monitoring energy usage right out of the box, so facility managers know exactly how much and where energy is being used, and can identify ways to use energy
more effectively. Spara DM connects with EnergyPAQ data to enable fine-tuned peak demand control, automated demand response, and dynamic pricing optimization, allowing users to pay the lowest electricity rates possible and earn money through utility incentive programs.

“Our Spara DM software and Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s EnergyPAQ Energy Monitoring and Control System are complementary solutions,” says Kevin Klustner, CEO of Powerit Solutions. “EnergyPAQ gives customers insight into their energy usage, and Spara DM uses the controls capabilities in EnergyPAQ to manage electrical demand without compromising production.”

“This solution will help substantially reduce energy bills and make our customer’s facility a truly Energy Smart Factory,” says Matt Lopinski, vice president of the Industrial Automation Division of Mitsubishi Electric Automation.
