Get to Know Your eGauge

eGauge Introduction

An eGauge is an electricity monitoring device that provides real-time reporting of electricity use to an online dashboard easily accessed anywhere, anytime. With the eGauge we are now able to observe, record, and analyze school energy use including total electricity consumption, solar production, and peak loads. 

The eGauge online dashboard comes with some powerful features that help you better understand your school's energy use. With the dashboard you can see at a glance the current energy use of your school, peak load values, startup and shutdown times, extracurricular energy use, solar production, and building overnight base load consumption. The dashboard also allows you to adjust the view of energy use from 10 minutes of history to one day, to one year, and even to the very first minutes of recording. The dashboard also provides helpful summaries for the time-period shown and over the last 30 days of monitoring.

The eGauge also serves as a powerful diagnostic tool for district energy managers, school facilities managers, and other users. With the dashboard it is possible to track building energy use behavior, observe trends, and identify irregularities in building energy use that may indicate mechanical failures or mismanagement. 

For example, in late August of 2017 shortly after North Arvada Middle School's eGauge went online, the facility manager for the school observed a dramatic increase in the base load of the building. He promptly communicated this change to Energy Management. The cause of the increase was determined to be a malfunction on the controller of the school's chiller, causing its program logic to send an occupy signal at all times. This caused the building’s chiller to kick on in the middle of the night, and its pumps and compressor continued to run through the weekend and into the next week. The chiller ran outside of its normal control parameters for seven days. During that time, North Arvada Middle School consumed approximately 23,000 kWh of additional electricity at an additional cost of about $2,400 to the district. If the problem hadn’t been identified and was left unchecked for the remainder of the school year, the chiller malfunction could have added even more to the district’s energy costs.
Please contact Energy Management with any questions about your school's eGauge or if you notice unusual energy use activity in your school's eGauge dashboard.
