Rayco Energy, a San Francisco Bay Area-based energy service company, has integrated Xyicon’s web-based SpaceRunner to visualize essential lighting systems for large-scale energy efficiency and building modernization projects. Instead of managing information on manual spreadsheets, Rayco Energy’s operations teams have deployed SpaceRunner to view floor plans and layouts, map the location of equipment and share essential data online for its advanced space-lighting and energy-efficiency systems.
A proven leader in mixed-use developments and multi-family communities. Rayco Energy adopted SpaceRunner for a major energy retrofit for The Keys Condominium Owners Association in Walnut Creek, California. Tapping large PG&E bills and rebates, Rayco Energy is using SpaceRunner to map, provision and service more than 5,000 fixture upgrades to new Title 24 compliant LED lighting with integrated controls, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) upgrades to water and fuel pumps and extensive hot water heating efficiency upgrades. For this large-scale energy retrofit, Rayco Energy utilizes SpaceRunner to replace cumbersome paper floor plans, spreadsheets and printed service binders with online floor plans and essential warranty and maintenance information that is easy to view and share with The Keys’ facility teams and their service technicians.
“Rayco Energy is using SpaceRunner so our operations teams can operate more efficiently and collaborate better with our clients’ facilities management teams to manage, service and maintain our LED lighting and energy retrofit solutions throughout their lifecycle,” said Rayco Energy Director of Operations Keven Hempel. “Our teams love SpaceRunner’s easy to use interface to manage lighting and energy-efficiency assets. With SpaceRunner, we are able to gain a better understanding of the details and location of lights, controls and other systems across an entire property.”
The Keys Condominium Owner’s Association is a non-profit organization that constantly faces tough financial choices. At first, expensive energy retrofits did not seem possible. However, by partnering with Rayco Energy, The Keys were able to secure a rebate worth over 78 percent of the protect cost, with an additional projected savings of $100,000 in their first year’s utility bill.
“For HOA operations and management teams, what was normally performed with complex, tab-filled spreadsheets has been replaced with SpaceRunner. The solution enables the visualization of important data on floor plans virtually,” explains Xyicon founder and CEO, Jason Chavez. “Using SpaceRunner, HOA teams can not only map, view and share essential component data, but also track maintenance, reduce costs and deliver a measurably higher level of service across an entire property, community or commercial building.”
