(January 14, 2010) Premier healthcare alliance, serving more than 2,200 hospitals and some 63,000 other healthcare sites, has entered into a contract with Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) to offer Premier members EASI technologies that can reduce energy consumption between 10 and 30 percent.
"Premier's mission is to improve the health of its members' communities, and health care providers have more resources to provide services when they are saving energy and money," said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer. "After analysis and research, Premier concluded that EASI gives alliance members a financial and environmental advantage; we're proud to be one of its approved vendors. Reducing energy costs will go a long way toward lowering the overall cost of health care."Premier, created and owned by nearly 200 hospitals and health systems, is based in Charlotte, N.C. It offers members a variety of services under the headings of reducing costs, improving quality and managing risk. One function is "organizing member committees to evaluate products and select those to be placed on contract," according to the Premier website.
EASI President Dr. Paul Bleiweis said the company's technologies reduce heat and eliminate waste in electrical systems.
"Those two elements are always there, siphoning off power quality and causing larger than necessary electric bills," said Bleiweis, who earned his doctorate in nuclear science and engineering from UCLA. "Our technologies improve power quality while reducing kilowatt hours without major construction or interfering with a client's business operations."
EASI has a more than 32-year corporate history of providing clients with energy saving technologies. EASI has conducted thousands of technology installations in the U.S. and more than 60 other countries either directly or through a network of affiliates. [top]
(November 24,2009) The Arroyo, Puerto Rico high technology medical devices manufacturing facility's monthly energy usage was reduced from 1,436,000 kilowatt hours to 1,177,000, an 18 percent reduction. Kilowatt demand was reduced by a similar amount, and all power factor penalties were eliminated.
Stryker Corp. is one of the largest companies in the worldwide orthopedic equipment market, with nearly $7 billion in annual sales and a significant presence in other medical specialties.
The electrical system analysis and installation of the EASI energy saving technologies for the Arroyo plant was carried out by Caribbean Energy Savings, Inc. of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The project design and the technologies used were provided by Energy Automation Systems, Inc.
"Our energy reduction goals were surpassed," said Francis Pagan, the Stryker plan's facilities manager. "This is especially remarkable as energy costs increased during that same period.
"Installation was completed with no interruption during our around-the-clock manufacturing process," Pagan added. "Our environmental goals were also met, meaning we significantly reduced our carbon footprint. We have experienced the utmost satisfaction with this process."
Energy reduction estimates were for a nine percent savings; however, when completed, the project resulted in the 18 percent energy use reduction. Energy savings work included a lighting retrofit of manufacturing and warehousing areas which increased light levels and quality of light.
EASI's Easiliner and Powerliner technologies were used throughout in the manufacturing and air conditioning equipment. Additional savings on air conditioning and refrigeration were achieved with the EASI Optimizer intelligent controller and EASI's polarized refrigerant oil additive.
All EASI technologies perform by improving electrical system efficiency and the efficiency of the loads they treat, reducing excess heat and improving power quality. This conforms to EASI's philosophical approach to energy conservation, saving energy by reducing waste that exists in electrical systems.
Achieving a doubling of the energy savings over estimates for the Arroyo facility is a significant cost-saver for Stryker's Puerto Rico operations, said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer.
"Our affiliate, Caribbean Energy Savings, conducted an energy evaluation of the facility, which resulted in the nine percent estimated savings," Merlo said. "Nearly doubling that estimate speaks to the efficiency of EASI technologies that are applicable to any business that uses electricity."
If the actual savings had been below the estimate the difference would have been covered by EASI through an arrangement with Lloyd's of London. EASI technologies have a life cycle of 20-30 years and require no maintenance, Merlo said.

(October 27, 2009) Nashville -- Temple Dor Dorim, a Weston, Fla. synagogue, was, like many non-profit organizations in these economic times, seeking ways to cut expenses to make its dollars go farther. When the synagogue installed energy saving technology that dropped its electric bills nearly 28 percent, it was like a gift from above.
Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI), developed and manufactured the energy saving technologies that helped Temple Dor Dorim. In a serious economic situation in which non-profits are facing budget pressures as contributions are squeezed, energy savings has a money-saving effect and an environmental advantage.
“We were ecstatic to find that in our first month after the work was completed our estimated kilowatt hours per day were reduced by 27.8 percent from the same month in the previous year,” said Howard Chess, synagogue executive director. “In these economic times, any dollar saved is a benefit.”
Evidence shows that non-profit contributions are in decline, giving added incentive to non-profits to find new ways to save money for operations and services.
There are increasing pressures and discussions in Congress about limiting tax deductions for charitable contributions, which could affect donations even further. The Chronicle of Philanthropy reported on Sept. 23, 2009 that, “Some Senate Finance Committee members have resurrected the idea of limiting tax breaks for charitable donations as a way to raise money to overhaul the health-care system.”
With these pressures, energy savings are more important than ever, for economic and environmental reasons, said Joe Merlo, Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) founder and chief executive officer.
“Non-profits need help,” Merlo said. “As our experience with Temple Dor Dorim shows, energy savings means dollar savings.”
EASI technologies are applied to a facility’s entire electrical system, thus achieving guaranteed energy reductions.
“Energy Reductions Solutions, Inc. was our EASI affiliate that worked with Temple Dor Dorim, and after analyzing its electrical system Energy Reductions Solutions guaranteed a 15 percent energy savings when our technologies were installed.
“The actual savings was close to 28 percent, but if it had been below 15 percent, the difference would have been paid through our guarantee, backed by Lloyd’s of London,” Merlo said. EASI technologies have a 20-to-30-year lifecycle, and purchase and installation can be achieved through energy savings.”
This savings goes to the bottom line of non-profit and religious organizations, Merlo said.
“These people and their organizations are doing important work that affects, improves and uplifts the lives of the people they touch,” said Merlo. “EASI can help them have an even bigger impact through energy conservation and savings, and we’re proud of that.” [top]
(October 20, 2009) NASHVILLE, TN -- Installation of Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) technologies at the Verizon Center, home to Washington D.C.’s National Basketball Association and National Hockey League teams and hundreds of concerts and events annually, has been completed. This installation is projected to save approximately $25,000 per month on the Verizon Center’s electric bill for the next 20-30 years.
EASI’s Easiliners, Powerliners, Frigitech, and lighting technologies, which are all designed to reduce excess heat and improve power quality by eliminating inefficiencies in the Verizon Center’s existing electrical system, were installed.
EASI and its affiliate EnergyPro LLC of Potomac, Md., worked together to provide the savings. EnergyPro LLC conducted a detailed energy survey of the Verizon Center . Using these data EASI designed an energy saving system consisting of a variety of EASI’s technologies that were installed and will provide an estimated monthly energy savings of over 10 percent. The payback period for this installation of EASI’s energy saving technologies is projected to be less than three years. This payback is guaranteed and the guarantee is backed by Lloyd’s of London.
“We installed these EASI technologies without interfering with Verizon Center operations,” said Joe Haley, owner of EnergyPro LLC. “The technologies were applied to the Verizon Center’s existing electrical system, so no construction or renovation work was necessary.”
The Verizon Center hosts some 220 events and concerts annually. Managed by Washington Sports & Entertainment LP, the 12-year-old facility has hosted NBA All-Star games, the World Figure Skating Championships, the Stanley Cup finals, and several rounds of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. U2, Beyonce, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones are performers who have appeared at the Verizon Center.
“The $200 million facility uses about $250,000 a month in electricity, and the energy savings, guaranteed by EASI, goes straight to the bottom line”, said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer.
“The Verizon Center will be able to pay for the EASI system through the savings it will realize in a short period of time,” Merlo said. “Additional factors are that EASI technologies require little or no maintenance and have a 20-30 year life cycle. That eliminates the requirement for constant monitoring and expensive upkeep. Our goal is to make life easier for customers.”
EASI and its affiliates have performed thousands of installations in the U.S. and more than 60 foreign countries. Among EASI customers are General Electric, Conagra, the Congressional Country Club, British Petroleum, the Saudi Basic Industries Corp. and the Statue of Liberty. [top]
(September 1, 2009) DELMAR, Md. -- The 6,000-seat Wicomico County Civic Center in Salisbury, Maryland saw its electricity usage drop between 20 to 30 percent and its positive environmental contribution rise after Shore Energy Systems, Inc. of Delmar installed technologies designed and developed and manufactured by Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI), a worldwide energy cost-savings company.
“After the payback the savings goes straight to the bottom line,” said Chuck Rousseau, manager of the civic center. “We’re a governmental entity, so when I request money for electric needs now I can ask for significantly less. We’re very fortunate we were proactive and went with the EASI system.”
Baltimore’s East Point Mall, built in 1956, was one of the city’s first indoor shopping malls. In 2007, Shore Energy estimated that EASI systems would cut mall electricity use by 12.5 percent. However, the actual figure was more than 20 percent.
“We’re very pleased that we have exceeded the guaranteed kilowatt savings,” said Geri Moore, general manager of East Point Mall. “It has a direct effect on our bottom line, and we’re happy that there is an environmental benefit as well.”
Rising energy costs stymie business growth, hamper employment and hinder productivity. In its nine years in business, Shore Energy Systems, an affiliate of Energy Automation Systems, Inc, (EASI), sells and installs its systems that guarantee energy cost and usage reductions for customers that include manufacturing operations, golf courses, a bottling company, restaurants, a hotel, and nearly 60 other area facilities.
“EASI systems enable businesses to improve their electrical system power quality and eliminate waste,” said Pete Bubas, owner of Shore Energy Systems. “We can help any business that pays an electric bill. That’s our report card, the electric bill.”
EASI has engineered energy conservation technologies that give businesses an immediate financial - and environmental - return, says Bubas.
Shore Energy Systems first reviews a business’s last 12 to 14 months of electric bills, conducts a facility walk-through and arranges for a full energy use survey. The survey results lead to the guaranteed energy savings Bubas determines EASI equipment will achieve.
“If we estimate that we can’t save the client at least 10 percent, we refund the survey cost,” Bubas said. “Thus far we have not had to make a single refund. If the survey shows energy savings of 11 percent or more, that’s what we guarantee.”
EASI provides an immediate solution to the nation’s energy needs, Bubas said.
“A lot of attention is focused on alternative fuels and energy sources, and in the long run that’s a good thing,” he said. “But imagine what it would mean for our country’s energy independence and economic health if every business could cut its energy use by 10 to 30 percent. The point is, it’s achievable, and it’s achievable right now through EASI technologies.” [top]
(July 20, 2009) NASHVILLE, TN - The country’s leading manufacturer of solar panels to generate electricity has cut its greenhouse gas emissions and electricity costs through use of energy saving technologies engineered and manufactured by Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI)
“EASI’s equipment has a direct effect on our environmental impact by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases,” said Jeffrey Brelsford, North American customer service manager of BP Solar International.
“BP is making an environmental contribution through the manufacture of our solar panels, the reliability of which is the best in the industry and essential to delivering the lowest lifetime costs to our customers. We’re also having a positive environmental impact through the reduction of energy usage using EASI technologies. The lower a facility’s electricity usage, the less greenhouse gases of any type they create.”
Brelsford said that his facility’s energy bills fell eight percent after EASI technologies were installed.
Nashville, Tenn.-based EASI’s energy-reducing equipment was installed in BP Solar International’s more than 100,000 square-foot Frederick, Maryland facility in 2006 and 2007. More than 500 people are employed in the facility, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We began calculating the greenhouse gas reductions for our customers in 2008,” said Joe Merlo, Energy Automation Systems Inc. (EASI) chief executive officer said. “The formula involves determining the types of fuel used to power their operations and calculating both the cost savings in kilowatt hours and the greenhouse gas reductions based on those lower numbers.”
“Electricity savings were eight percent based on a six-megawatt site,” Brelsford said. “The EASI staff was competent and professional. We talked with other users of EASI equipment and the company guaranteed their results.”
Said Merlo, “EASI is naturally pleased to be putting our energy-saving technologies to work with BP Solar International, which is making vital contributions in providing an alternative means of energy for our people and our economy.” [top]
(June 24, 2009) - The Verizon Center, Washington D.C.’s major arena, has elected to install Energy Automation Systems, Inc. technologies that will save the home of Washington’s NBA and NHL franchises an estimated $25,000 a month on its electric bills.
The nearby Congressional Country Club, located in Bethesda, Md., has seen an 18 percent drop in its electricity usage – and electric bills – since installing EASI technologies in February. The savings will reach about $120,000 annually, says the club’s operations director.
Nashville, Tenn.-based Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) develops and manufactures in the U.S. a dozen technologies that have been employed in thousands of energy saving installations in 66 countries.
“We’re proud to have these two important facilities making use of our equipment for the purpose of reducing energy consumption and making a positive environmental contribution,” said Joe Merlo, Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) founder and chief executive officer.
EASI technologies eliminate electrical system inefficiencies and reduce excess heat by dealing with a, said Dr. Paul Bleiweis, EASI president.
“In facilities such as the Verizon Center and the Congressional Country Club, our technologies are used to address the entire electrical system, not just individual components,” Bleiweis said. “Any business that pays an electric bill is a candidate to have their bottom line helped by EASI.”
After a review of a customer’s electrical systems, EASI guarantees the customer’s energy savings in an agreement backed by Lloyd’s of London. EASI technologies last more than 20 years and require no maintenance.
Sales and installations for both the Verizon Center and Congressional Country Club were handled by EASI affiliate EnergyPro LLC, of Potomac, Md. The Congressional Country Club is highly pleased with the results, said Mike Troyner, the club’s operations director.
“Out of the gate I was somewhat skeptical of what they could do for us, particularly a project of this size,” he said. “Initially they promised us savings a little under 13 percent but it’s trending at 18 percent in kilowatt hours saved. We’re going to be putting even more equipment online, so our savings should become even greater.”
General Electric, BP, Conagra and the Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) are some of the companies that use EASI equipment to cut their energy costs.
Haley, who started his company two years ago after spending most of his career as “a finance guy working on a trading desk,” said EnergyPro has become “extremely busy.”
“The demand is growing exponentially,” he said. “We did five energy surveys for customers in May and seven for June. Businesses don’t want to keep being trapped by never-ending increases in their electric bills; EASI’s equipment makes a huge difference on a company’s bottom line.” [top]
(June 17, 2009) - Greenhouse gas emissions for businesses and governments in the U.S. and more than 60 countries are being reduced by Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI), an American company that for years has guaranteed and achieved specific energy savings – and now provides greenhouse gas emissions reductions – for its customers.
Nashville, Tenn. – based EASI enables across-the-board greenhouse gas reductions while achieving energy cost savings of between 10 and 30 percent. EASI’s energy-savings estimates are guaranteed by the company and backed by Lloyd’s of London. General Electric, General Cable, BP, Conagra and the Saudi Basic Industries Corp. are among the thousands of customers who have installed EASI’s engineered technologies.
Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) greenhouse gas reduction verification procedures provide companies with an opportunity to seek carbon credits resulting from their lowered energy usage.
“EASI technologies reduce electricity usage – and greenhouse gases – by substantially reducing wasteful heat and inefficiencies in a facility’s electrical system,” said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer. “This results in far fewer kilowatt hours used, with resulting benefits for everyone from our customer to the communities near the facility.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in April stated that greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, are a threat to health. The EPA determined that greenhouse gas emissions are dangerous enough to bring about action under federal air pollution laws. Businesses and governments help themselves economically and environmentally as they cut greenhouse gases.
Power plants that burn fossil fuels to generate electricity release pollutants and gases into the atmosphere. By reducing electricity use, EASI technologies cut customers’ electric bills and the amount of fuels burned to provide power for them, said Dr. Paul Bleiweis, EASI president.
“As businesses use less electricity, electric companies use less generation capacity and fewer pollutants are released into the air,” Bleiweis said. “The amount of electricity a business uses is shown on its bill as kilowatt hours. After an EASI system is installed we compare the electric bill’s kilowatt hours to a comparable period before the installation. This is how we measure and verify the electricity savings EASI guarantees.”
Merlo said that EPA data show the types of fuel used by utility companies to generate electricity. Using that information, the quantities of gas and pollutants emitted into the atmosphere can be estimated for each kilowatt hour generated.
“To determine an EASI customer’s contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions we calculate the reduction based on the number of kilowatt hours we save the customer. This is done individually because the data varies by geographical area and is mainly determined by fuel type used by the utility.”
Merlo said EASI has provided energy savings guarantees for customers for 17 years and in 2007 EASI began providing estimates of greenhouse gas reductions.
"When I started in the energy-reduction business more than 31 years ago customers cared only about the cost savings on their electric bills,” Merlo said. “Gradually they have become more interested in helping to protect the environment and improving their ‘green’ image. EASI helps them accomplish both, and that’s an advantage to every one of our customers.” [top]
(June 3, 2009) - Initially skeptical of technologies he thought sounded too good be true, the operations director of the Congressional Country Club has seen an 18 percent drop in the club’s kilowatt hour usage in the four months since installing energy-saving technologies engineered and manufactured by Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI).
An 18 percent reduction results in yearly savings of more than $122,000.
EASI equipment is now being installed in the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. (home of the NBA Wizards and NHL Capitals), and projections are that it will save more than 10 percent on the Center’s electric bill, or some $25,000 per month, said Joe Haley, owner of EnergyPro LLC, of Potomac, Md., the local affiliate of Energy Automation Systems, Inc.
“The Congressional Country Club and Verizon Center hired us to put our energy savings solutions to work for them,” said Haley. “We guarantee the savings our equipment will produce after we survey the customer’s energy usage and savings potential.”
“Out of the gate I was somewhat skeptical of what they could do for us, particularly when you’re looking at a project of this size,” he said. “Initially they promised us savings a little under 13 percent but it’s trending at 18 percent in kilowatt hours saved.
Nashville, Tenn.-based Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) helps reduce energy usage and foreign oil dependence by projecting – and guaranteeing – customer energy savings.
In 31 years in business, thousands of installations of EASI’s 11 technologies have been made in the U.S. and 65 foreign countries. Client energy savings generally range between 10 and 30 percent.
General Electric, BP, Conagra and the Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) are some of the companies that use EASI equipment to cut their energy costs.
EASI also analyzes the types of fuels used to generate electricity for its customers and computes resulting greenhouse gas reductions customers achieve through their energy savings.
“Until a few years ago business owners were only interested in what our equipment would do to reduce their electric bills; however, today there is almost a corresponding level of interest in how EASI equipment can add to a company’s environmental status,” said Joe Merlo, EASI’s chief executive officer.
“We have refined, perfected and grown our inventory of technologies that require no maintenance, can be installed without interfering with a company’s operations and have a life cycle of over 20 years,” he added.
EASI technologies can be immediately employed by businesses to reduce their energy consumption and bills, said Dr. Paul Bleiweis, EASI president. Bleiweis earned his doctorate in nuclear science and engineering from UCLA.
“Our products eliminate the inefficiencies and excess heat carried by virtually all electrical systems,” Bleiweis said. “Any business that pays an electric bill is a candidate to have their bottom line helped by EASI.”
Merlo said EASI or its affiliates conduct an energy survey of potential clients. From the review an estimate of energy savings is provided to the customer. If the actual savings fails to meet the projection, EASI would make up the difference. Its guarantees are through Lloyd’s of London.
Haley, who started his company two years ago after spending most of his career as “a finance guy working on a trading desk,” said EnergyPro has become “extremely busy.”
“The demand is growing exponentially,” he said. “We did five energy surveys for customers in May and seven are lined up for June. Businesses don’t want to keep being trapped in this by never-ending increases in their electric bills; EASI’s equipment makes a huge difference on a company’s bottom line.” [top]
