Commercial Industrial Boiler Efficiency Program - Offered by Enovity
Do you want to obtain no-cost, technical services and incentives for your boiler systems, while decreasing your energy costs? Enovity, a sustainability consulting firm, provides cash incentives for boiler efficiency improvements to commercial, industrial and agricultural customers in PG&E's service territory who pay the Public Good Charge or Public Purpose Surcharge and operate hot water or steam boilers.
Through Envoity's Commercial Industrial Boiler Efficiency Program, facilities were able to save over $2.8 million in annual energy costs and receive $2.9 million in cash incentives during the 2006-2008 Program cycle. As a result of Enovity's success, the Program will continue through the next funding period.
Enovity helps its customers identify boiler system energy efficiency opportunities at their facility, perform measurements and analysis to estimate energy savings, assist in the implementation of the energy efficiency upgrades (such as reviewing contractor proposals), verify the installation of measures and the final savings achieved, and provides a financial incentive to help buy down the cost of these projects. Enovotiy has also been instrumental in combining boiler energy efficiency with NOx upgrades in order to improved boiler capacity, improve operations and maintenance and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Examples of these measures include burner control upgrades (for 30 ppm NOx), burner combustion fan VFDs, and SCR installation and ULN burner replacement (such as replacing a high excess air, ULN burner with a low excess air 30 ppm NOx burner with a CataStak SCR system).
Benefits of participating in the Program include reduced energy consumption, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, reduced maintenance costs and improved system efficiency What do you have to lose?

Also, read Nationwide Boiler's case study about how a major California food processor was able to receive cash incentives as well as energy and emissions reductions though the installation of a an E2Stak solution (CataStak SCR system and EconoStak economizer) and a condensing stack heat recovery system.
The costs associated for the maintenance and cleaning of an average industrial boiler depends on many things. It could range from a simple annual turnaround job ($15,000 provided no major parts are needed) to $100,000 (if major parts are needed and/or expensive tube cleaning with acid is required).
I recommend speaking to a specialized company in your area for details.
Can you tell me how much is the cost in US dollars for the maintenance and cleaning of an average industrail boiler? Thank yu.
Great very helpful bog.One of the biggest problems with water-bath stand-by propane vaporizer systems is corrosion of the vaporizer heat exchanger and water box. http://www.maniks.com/desuperheater.html
