Off-the-Shelf Demand Response for Commercial Buildings

March 6, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

SparaPowerit Solutions introduced Spara Go, a demand response product designed for experienced facility engineers who need to manage commercial buildings, campus applications or smaller industrial sites with less energy-intensive loads than a typical Spara installation.

Spara Go still has the full demand control, demand response and dynamic pricing functionality of Powerit’s Spara DM and Spara Hub technology, but Spara Go is tailored for a simple implementation; it plugs into existing automation technology and is easy to set up via a Web-based interface, says the company.

The product comes with a fixed number of preconfigured loads and a fixed amount of support for setup and maintenance. It can manage 10 analog and 10 digital predefined loads and can be set up to handle an entire facility, a subset of loads or ancillary loads.

Spara Go is designed as an off-the-shelf demand management system. It’s ready for integration into an automated facility through standard MODBUS registers.
