Cost Allocation & Reporting
The PMCS Cost Allocation and Reporting module is an essential tool for managing energy usage and identifying areas for cost savings. The Cost Allocation module provides functionality for the automated creation of power usage reports and capability to supply individual energy reports and bills for a variety of groupings by aggregating specific energy data. For example, billing can be generated with a variety of detail by device, by department/cost center, or by floor.
The format of the reports and bills are fully customizable and can match the same format found in utility bills, including values such as total energy and peak demand power use based on time of use schedules, seasonal rate schedules and regionally specific rate structures.
PMCS brings accountability to the facility by providing the capability to allocate costs based on usage and specifically identify usage for particular areas of the facility. This focuses the scope and increases the effectiveness of energy management strategies by providing measurable results.
Cost Allocation also provides an easy to use utility configurator, which helps in understanding the costs that appear on the utility bill. Energy management strategies can be developed and tested to see the impact of load shedding, peak demand shaving, shifting rate schedules or even changing utility suppliers.

Generate Power Utilization Efficiency (PUE) reports.
Control & Automation
The PMCS Control and Automation module provides capabilities to implement energy management solutions with automated strategies by interfacing directly with facility devices (GE and non-GE) controlling on-site generators, utility feeds and the power distribution network. The Control and Automation module along with GE devices allows the creation and implementation of customized control and automation schemes to protect assets and ensure optimal energy efficiency and value.
Implement fast load shedding strategies by isolating local system anomalies to prevent catastrophic system failure and plant shutdown.
Reduce the chaotic effects of utility power outages by employing automatic transfer schemes that shed non-critical loads, switch to stable power feeds and control start-up of generators.
Reduce energy charges with automated shedding of non-critical loads duing peak rate times.
Reduce peak demand surcharges through automated staging of equipment during process start-up.
Perform remote control safely and securely.
