NES Garage Ventilation Control System Cuts Baseline Energy Consumption…

Nagle Energy Solutions (NES) announced today its patent-pending garage ventilation control system is delivering a 97% reduction in the baseline energy consumption of the mechanical ventilation system at South Main Senior Lifestyles, a newly constructed senior assisted living facility in Milpitas, CA. The NES system will shave more than 219,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) a year from the property’s baseline of energy consumption, and it is expected to provide a recurring, operational-cost savings exceeding $35,000 a year.

South Main Senior Lifestyles consists of 199 residential living units totaling 266,000 square feet, with a below-grade parking structure measuring 61,000 square feet. The property’s garage mechanical ventilation system is powered by two, 10-horsepower (HP) motors and two, 7.5-HP motors, which run continuously (24/7) as required by California code.

Power measurements confirm the NES demand-control ventilation (DCV) system is limiting the energy consumed by the three-phase garage-fan motors to slightly less than 3% of their combined full load capacity. This correlates to a 97% reduction in kilowatt hours (kWh) and peak demand kilowatts (kW) the mechanical ventilation system would otherwise consume – 225,750 kWh/year – with no means of fan-motor control in place.

As a result, the cost to ventilate South Main Senior Lifestyles’ enclosed garage is estimated to be slightly more than $1,000 per year (just $90 per month), which is down from the more than $36,000/year ($3,000/month) property management would pay without the NES system in place and controlling the garage ventilation system on a 24/7 basis.

The NES digital DCV system detects and measures vehicle fumes in the garage and then modulates garage fan speeds to prevent carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations from exceeding predefined set points (measured in parts per million) for an extended period of time. This unique ventilation strategy, when deployed with patent-pending means and methods for motor control, routinely captures kWh and peak kW demand savings amounting to 95% – and up to 97% in many instances.

Specific to the garage at South Main Senior Lifestyles, after factoring for traffic, baseline consumption is expected to remain fairly constant.

About Nagle Energy Solutions: Based in San Mateo, CA, Nagle Energy Solutions, LLC (http://www.nagle-energy.com) develops, manufactures and distributes a patent-pending DCV system for commercial garages which markedly reduces energy consumption by increasing operational.

energy efficient custom homes

Amaris Homes’ award-winning model home is in Afton, Minnesota, and is a custom spec four-bedroom, 3 ½-bathroom home.

We are extremely proud to be recognized once again for our work to build custom homes with green building practices.

Amaris Homes, a leader in the affordable energy home industry, received Grand Winner recognition in the “Custom Homes on Spec” category from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Awards. This is the second time they have received this custom home design award in the last four years. In 2017, Amaris Homes tied for first place; this year the company was the only one named Grand Winner.

The company’s award-winning model home is in Afton, Minnesota, and is a custom spec four-bedroom, 3 ½-bathroom home with a high-performance insulation system, energy efficient appliances and a high-efficiency comfort system, among other green features.

Amaris Homes has more certified custom-built green homes than any other builder in the state of Minnesota. While most other states have hundreds or even thousands of certified homes with the Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Homes Program, Minnesota only has 34. The Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Award winners represent the top 1% of U.S. builders that meet the rigorous specifications for the energy efficient custom homes program.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized once again for our work to build custom homes with green building practices,” said Raymond Pruban, Amaris Homes founder and chief manager. “These awards provide further reassurance of the quality of our green homes, not just in build and appearance, but what they can do for the environment.”

Energy efficient custom homes from Amaris Homes cut costs for homeowners by saving on energy bills while also doing so in a way that contributes to a sustainable future.

“Our goal is to continue to build homes with energy and water efficiency,” Pruban added. “We will continue to grow the number of green homes we produce in 2021.”

This Amaris Homes home incorporates efficient design principles that are calculated to save a homeowner $3,350 annually compared to the average new home.

As a healthy home builder, Amaris Homes has committed that every home it creates will meet the Zero Energy Home Program requirements.

Amaris Homes has won each time they have entered the Housing Innovation Awards. They also recently won the Reggie Award in 2019, which is an award granted for homes with high aesthetic appeal, along with other renowned custom home design awards.

This is the first of many Net Zero Homes we will build to bring homeowners and business owners into a sustainable, affordable, ideally carbon-free future that will positively affect generations to come. -Dan Javan, Suntuity CEO & President

Holmdel, New Jersey-based contractors Suntuity Solar (https://suntuitysolar.com) and Suntuity Home (https://suntuityhome.com) are pleased to announce the construction of a one-of-a-kind LEED Platinum Certified home, the first of many planned under Suntuity Home’s Net Zero brand. The 100% solar-powered structure will become the first self-sustaining residential net zero energy project in central New Jersey to be built with cost-effective and environmentally-friendly BuildBlock ICF (Insulating Concrete Forms).

Once construction is complete, the ENERGY STAR® rated home will host 90 rooftop DualSun SPRING® solar modules on an Englert standing seam metal roof, 98% energy efficient LED lighting, a 93 kilowatt solar thermal heating system, and 8 Tesla™ Powerwall batteries for power storage. Additionally, an 1,800-square-foot rain catchment system will be installed on the rooftop to save and recycle up to 40,000 gallons of water per year.

A geothermal heating system and hybrid heat pumps will be used for secondary and tertiary heating supplements, and a 29,000-gallon infinity edge pool will serve as an additional storage location for hot water during colder months. The insulated driveway of the home, also to be built with ICF, will include an ice melt system to battle icy weather conditions. Additional premier brands utilized for this project include a CertainTeed mortarless STONEfacade™ to avoid moisture related issues, a Warmboard® radiant heating system, 3-pane, low emissivity (Low-E) PlyGem windows and a 36-foot span of hinge-less Panoramic Doors made with PVC and aluminum for improved thermal conditions and structural strength.

“We are pleased to announce this unique pilot project,” said Suntuity President and CEO, Dan Javan. “It is the first of many Net Zero Homes we will build to bring homeowners and business owners into a sustainable, affordable, ideally carbon-free future that will positively affect generations to come. We have done our best to work with a skilled team of professionals to bring green structures like this to market.”

The home will produce enough clean air to offset the pollution from over 63 million miles driven by the average vehicle. While it has a wealth of carbon-reducing benefits, there are also significant savings that the homeowner will experience over time – about $12,000 in annual utility savings, or an estimated ~$300,000 over 25 years. For additional savings, the standing seam metal roof with low-gloss, non-reflective coating helps reduce energy bills up to 50% and keeps the surface 60-70 degrees cooler than other roof options.
