Automatic Controls has worked with Ameren on many energy saving projects for our customers.  In recognition of our efforts in this area and our long term commitment to both our customers and industry partners, Ameren's Biz Savers utility incentive program named us as their Mechanical Trade Ally of the Year for 2014.  We have continued to expand our energy savings projects for our customers, utilizing the newest technology and techniques.  This approach benefits our customers in many ways: they reduce their initial cost through incentives, keep their buildings and systems up to date, and make the world a better place thanks to the energy savings.

ENERGY BENCHMARKING

Automatic Controls offers energy benchmarking services for all of your buildings.  Utilizing the Energy Star Portfolio Manager tool, we can compare the energy efficiency of your building to similar buildings and offer suggestions to make your building operate more efficiently.

Energy Benchmarking is the first step in a successful building efficiency improvement project.  The results of energy benchmarking provide real feedback that allow us to work with our customers to identify the best improvement measures.
