Abstract

One major practice these days for effective utilization of the available electrical energy is the use of energy saving electrical loads. This work examined the economic advantage of using the energy saving electrical loads for electrical services design. Using College of Agricultural Management and Rural Development (COLAMRUD) and College of Engineering (COLENG) at Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) in Nigeria as a case study, load audits and energy efficiency calculations were carried out considering both the conventional and energy saving components for electrical services. Economic benefits of using the energy efficiency components was determined by calculating the Mean Absolute Percentage Saving (MAPS) of electrical energy consumption. Results of the analysis showed that an average of about 38% of the electrical energy that was to be consumed in the two colleges would be saved if the energy saving components were employed for use instead of the conventional electrical load.
