Venergy provided and installed Power Factor Correction and Voltage Control Guard (VCG) units which will assist the Texas National Guard to meet their energy reduction goals/mandates. During the measurement and verification process of the VCG the Texas Army National Guard realized an 18% reduction in kW h at the sub-panels where the VCG was connected. This resulted in less than an 18 month Return On Investment (ROI). The PFC Unit completely eliminated the demand charge which resulted in $700 per month savings capturing less then an 18 month ROI.
