Through the Comprehensive Services Program (CSP), TVA and the distributors of TVA power provide engineering and technical assistance for commercial and industrial customers at no charge.
CSP covers all areas of energy use, including lighting, HVAC, wiring, water heating, industrial processes, load management, and commercial cooking. Here's a list of services:
Studies provide recommendations for the design of lighting systems in such places as sports fields, roadways, parking lots, and commercial and industrial plants.
Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning studies examine the sizing of HVAC equipment, offer heating-and-cooling-system comparisons, investigate problems with existing systems, and provide recommendations for improvements.
We install temporary metering equipment to gather data on facility electrical usage.
Wiring and Electrical Distribution Equipment
Studies analyze the facility's distribution system, including the sizing of wiring and equipment, and provide recommendations for system improvement.
General survey of energy use in a facility and recommendations on energy management opportunities, process, and facility improvements.
Examine food storage, preparation, and cooking, with recommendations on equipment, area design, ventilation, and heat reclaim.
Studies address voltage problems originating inside or outside the facility that adversely affect the end-user.
Examine the procedures for producing a product, such as materials handling, shipping, receiving, product flow, and energy utilization.
Metering and recommendations to correct for low power factor.
Grounding study, grounding testing, and lightning-protection recommendations.
Infrared scans of electrical equipment such as transformers, breakers, bus and conductor connections for hot spots, as well as scans for facility heating-and-cooling loss.
Industrial Expansion Services
Assistance in planning for facility expansions, including rates and services available.
Monitoring and testing electrical systems and recommendations related to managing peak demand.
Studies explore heat-pump water-heating applications, standard energy-efficient water heaters, and cost comparison of electric versus fossil-fuel systems.
Special End-Use Projects
Special projects to meet specific and unique needs of commercial and industrial customers.
Locate leaks in water, steam, air, and vacuum systems.
If you use electricity in your business or industry, you could benefit significantly from these services. For more information or to discuss specific energy issues, call Trenton Light & Water at 731-855-1561.
