WattStopper developed PlugCalc as part of Energy Calculator Tool Kit
WattStopper developed PlugCalc as a component of its Energy Calculator Tool Kit. The tool is available online or as a free downloadable iPad application. The PlugCalc “enables users to calculate energy savings opportunities as well as Return on Investment by automatically controlling plugged in office equipment and other plug loads,” says the release. Built on the same model as their existing Lighting Energy Calculator, PlugCalc features fill-in fields and drop-down menus for the calculation process. Users can set eight different plug loads and create customized device lists. The iPad version allows for the same functionality, emailing and printing of results just via touch pad instead.
