19 ECO No. 5: Install Daylight Sensors to Save Energy in Certain Area Install daylight sensors (photocell) in various areas to reduce lighting energy usage. To turn off lights automatically during the daytime when enough natural light is available. Electricity Cost Savings $724 Implementation Cost$468 Simple Payback0.6 yr

20 ECO No. 6: Reduce Compressed Air Pressure Reduce energy consumption by lowering the air compressor’s operating pressure from 124 psig to 110 psig in the asphalt plant and install extra compressed air storage. Electricity Cost Savings $2,560 Implementation Cost$2,311 Simple Payback0.9 yr

21 ECO No. 7: Replace Standard V-Belts with Cog-Type Belts It is suggested that cogged V-belts be installed on all equipment that is currently using standard type V- belts. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Division study, cog-type belts run cooler, last longer and have an efficiency that is 2% greater than equivalently rated V-belts. Electricity Cost Savings $1, 805 Implementation Cost$1,076 Simple Payback1.0 yr

22 ECO No. 8: Change the E19S Rate Schedule to E19P The Schedule E19P service offers lower energy and demand costs. However, this will require the purchase and maintenance of the transformer (step down transformer) at a substantial cost. Furthermore, the electric utility company will no longer be responsible in the event of transformer failure. The E19S delivers power at the secondary voltage and the E19P delivers the power at the primary voltage. These voltages are 480 volts and 12,000 volts, respectively. Power supplied at the higher voltage is available at a lower cost. The higher voltage is reduced with a transformer before the facility uses it. Electricity Cost Savings $19,997 (10.7% of current total annual electric cost) Implementation Cost $25,300 Simple Payback 1.3 year

23 ECO No. 9: Install Lighting Occupancy Sensors in Offices and Twist Timer in Maintenance Rooms The savings are realized by installing occupancy sensors. Lights will turn off automatically when these areas have been unoccupied for an extended period of time. Electricity Cost Savings $1,185 Implementation Cost$2,421 Simple Payback2 yr

24 ECO No. 11: Replace Air Vibrator with Electric Vibrator The air vibrator uses compressed air and then expels it to the atmosphere. Similar to an air leak, this is essentially wasted air that is fairly expensive to produce. This wasted compressed air represents lost compressor horsepower, which translates into increased energy usage for the plant operation. Electricity Cost Savings $388 Implementation Cost$1,032 Simple Payback2.7 yr

28 ECO No. 1: Repair Steam Leaks Inspect and repair fittings and valves of the steam piping on a bimonthly basis to reduce the steam leaks. By fixing the steam leaks, natural gas energy and costs would be conserved. Natural Gas Cost Savings $7,560 Implementation Cost Included in Cost Saving Simple Payback Immediate

29 ECO No. 6: Install VFD on the Dust Collector’s Fan Motor in the Continuous Mix Production Line Install a variable frequency drive (VFD) on the 200 dust collector fan motor in the Continuous Mix production line to eliminate the manual flow adjusting valve to allow 100% flow. A VFD will reduce the power consumption of the dust collector fan motor based on the temperature of the aggregate. Electricity Cost Savings $19,762 Implementation Cost $24,854 Simple Payback 1.3 yr

30 ECO No. 8: Replace MH-400 With MH-360 High efficiency HID Lamps High efficiency lower wattage Metal halide lamps have the same luminosity as the higher wattage lamps, but require less input power. Both MH- 400 and MH-360 lighting maintain the same luminescence. Electricity Cost Savings $509 Implementation Cost $1,320 Simple Payback 2.6 yr

31 Install a variable frequency drive (VFD) on the 75-hp burner blower used in the Continuous Mix line for the rotary asphalt dryer and eliminate the intake dampers.
