Testing on poultry processing ploant, Riverbank, CA.  Tested for several days on walls, mineral capsheet roof and AC equipment.  Electricity porovided by PG and E.

The company contacted PGand E and asked if thgey could get an energy rebate if the project proved to save energy.  PG and E would not send one of their engineers out.  They did, however, send out one of their former engineers that was now in business vfor himself.  He arrived the afternoon of the last day of testing. 

I had thermomerters in the roof and in the West facing wall.  He took those readings then switched the thermometers and took those readings'  Then he rfemoved my thermometyers and placed in his own.

After an hour of swapping them around he said  "OK, I hsave not hot the exact calculations yet but I am looking at a 50% reduction here.  This is very impressive."  He and his thermometers went back to his office.

 

Bright and early the next morning he called the owner of the company.  He said"That stuff is crap and it does not work.  PG and E will not give a rebate here."

 

The owner, the maintenace manager and I all knew what had just happened.

This ome years beforer the Energy Star program was around.  The maintenance manager had been with the company for 13 years.  He gave m,e a very nice statement   He said that after I had coated the AC unit on nthe roof, that served the office area, it began cycling on and off (on a 90 degree day)for the first time since he worked for the company.

The company was paying $10,000.00 a month in electricity.  That was when I first found out what electric companies were going to think about an RCC.  Had simlar experiences later on.  Oh well, it was an uphill road for sure.
