Lower AC Use by 50%
We have used the EnergyPlus software package, a state of the engine used to evaluate the effects of building design on energy use, to model the effect of CoolFlux on cooling energy. EnergyPlus demonstrates that CoolFlux can lower AC energy use by 50% or more over the course of a year. In addition, CoolFlux lowers the peak energy use in order to smooth out demand over the course of a day and shift energy use to off-peak hours. Thus, customers with a demand charge and time of use pricing will see further reductions in their electricity bill. These savings along with local energy efficiency incentives are projected to result in payback periods of under two years.
