System helps reduce additional costs

In 2017, Kasa Controls & Automation introduced their Utility Management System software to help grain facilities monitor utility usage, peak load and power factor, and to warn of unusually high and expensive energy usage.

According to Sales Representative and Marketing Supervisor John Claman, “Our system can alert operations of peak demand before a new high is established.

“This can significantly reduce peak demand charges and help facilities avoid ratchet clauses that can add thousands of dollars in additional costs due to a single high-average peak demand usage for 15 minutes.”

Better Quality Grain

“The utility management system can be tied into automation to reveal specific equipment usage contributing to costs and can implement logical load shedding of unneeded equipment,” he adds. “The system’s dashboard can be displayed on any networked computer or smart device at the facility and can send alerts via email or text.”
