FINLEY, Calif. – Lake County Energy Watch, in partnership with the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) Energy Training Center, is hosting the class “Integrated Energy Management for Dairy, Winery and Other Agricultural Facilities” on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Mount Konocti Growers, 2550 Big Valley Road, Finley.
This class will describe ways to manage energy relative to lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, boilers, pumps, motors and self-generation, as well as the benefits of those options.
Get tips on where to start, what to look for, how to quantify costs and value, and how to identify sources of financing.
Learn which tips are effective in getting projects installed, results verified, and choosing the next best steps for continuous improvement.
The class is designed for building operators, building owners, commissioning agents, contractors and engineers. However, anyone interested in saving money on electric costs is encouraged to attend.
Immediately following the class, PG&E will provide a presentation on Time Varying Pricing (TVP).
Under TVP, rates are higher when electric demand is higher, typically on weekday afternoons. At all other times, rates are lower.
All business and agriculture customers will transition to a time-of-use rate as part of a statewide plan to help protect California’s energy resources.
You will learn how TVP will affect you, how to conserve electricity during peak hours, and may be eligible for an onsite rate analysis.
Registration is required for this class, and complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided.
