IoT and LED Controls – NELA Park

The transition to LED lighting in millions of homes, commercial and industrial buildings in the United States is well underway. While the immediate goal is energy efficiency, connected lighting has the potential to unleash additional productivity and revenue outcomes, and to prepare for the future of smart technology. Cities that find parking spaces for you. Offices that greet workers with lighting and environmental controls when they arrive. Your home’s temperature controlled with an app on your phone. The industry is not just conserving energy – it’s improving life and work.

NEC 2017 – Article Article 547: Electrical System Design in Agricultural and Horticultural Grow Facilities

COURSE SUMMARY: Article 547 covers electrical installations in Agricultural Buildings. Typically these types of buildings involve excessive dust and livestock. Ohio has recently approved growing facilities for medical marijuana which could partially fall under this category if there is excessive duct. Horticultural Lighting must be full spectrum and requires a high level of lighting. Special load calculation considerations and derating conductor ampacity for number of current carrying conductors and heat apply. This course will give a better understanding of the load calculations and connections within these buildings with examples and detailed sketches.

Professional Development: Energy Efficient Programs for Businesses

How efficient is your lighting? Lighting consumes nearly 35 percent of the electricity used in commercial buildings. FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities can help you reduce energy use and costs while improving your visual environment.

Available to existing facilities and new construction projects, the Lighting Incentive Program is offered to Ohio commercial, industrial, governmental and institutional customers of Ohio Edison, The Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison (FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities) to encourage participants to install high-efficiency lighting equipment.

Presentation by Charles Heyman of Sodexo. Heyman joined Sodexo in 2017 and handles Cuyahoga County as an Outreach Representative for Sodexo representing the FirstEnergy Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. FirstEnergy pays Sodexo to be an impartial administer of the Commercial & Industrial Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. Sodexo is responsible for helping the 3 Ohio Electric Utilities FirstEnergy owns (The Illuminating Company, Ohio Edison & Toledo Edison) to achieve annual savings targets set & monitored by the PUCO. They work with end-use commercial & industrial customers, select program allies such as Lighting Contractors, Electricians, HVAC/ Mechanical companies, motors & drives companies, etc. to bring the rebate program to market.

NEC Article 725: Low Voltage Class 1,2 and 3 Wiring

Review of NEC Article 725 Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 Remote-Control, Signaling, and Power-Limited Circuits.
Class 1, 2 and 3 remote control, signaling and power-limited circuits are categorized by the amount of voltage and power they can carry. Power Over Ethernet (PoE) technology is looking to make low voltage circuits carry up to 100 watts of power over an ethernet cable. Some new requirements must be followed when low voltage cables carrying power are installed in buildings or similar structures. This class will review the definitions of these types of circuits and the installation requirements and techniques.
