Saratoga Springs, NY

ESPEY Mfg. & Electronics Corp. is a Power Electronics Design and Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) company with a long history of developing and delivering highly reliable products for use in military and severe environment applications. All design, manufacturing, and testing is performed in the 150,000 square foot facility located in Saratoga Springs, NY. The building is of 1920’s vintage.

Energy efficiency measures identified and evaluated by C.T. Male Associates for the purposes of this energy study included the following:

  • Facility has both older T12 lighting as well as newer T8 systems. We analyzed replacing the older T12 and the standard 32 watt T8 lighting systems with a more efficient super or ultra T8 25 watt lighting system as well as add lighting controls to match occupancy
  • Utilize Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting fixtures in place of the inefficient incandescent Exit Signage
  • Utilize Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting fixtures in place of the inefficient exterior fixtures
  • Identify Air leaks in the plants compressed air system using modern detection techniques and repair
  • Reduce Air Compressor operating pressure to match requirement of plant equipment
  • Upgrade Gas Unit Heaters to higher efficiency condensing units or utilizing energy efficient natural gas Infrared heaters to replace older less efficient unit heaters
  • Add Sensors to control the CO2 Exhaust Fans to limit run time based on the system run times
  • Add lighting and HVAC Controls to the Paint spray booth using ultrasonic sensing capabilities
  • Investigate the structural loads on the existing non insulated roof deck to add Insulation to reduce heat loss
  • Investigate the feasibility to replace the inefficient Hot Water Boiler
  • Investigate the installation of Skylights in the Assembly Area to reduce electrical lighting loads when natural light is sufficient

As a result of this scoping study and energy audit, C.T. Male Associates estimated the following energy, environmental and dollar savings:

  • Electricity Savings: 297,255 kWh /Year
  • Demand Savings: 116.3 kW / Month
