Power Monitoring Keeps Ski Resort Online Year-Round
Most probably wouldn't consider a ski resort a particularly big consumer of energy. But depending on the weather of a given season - particularly related to snowfall - it can become just that very quickly.
Bear Creek Mountain Resort & Conference Center is located on more than 330 acres in scenic Berks County, Penn. In 1999, Dustin Yeager, mountain electrician for Bear Creek, took charge of the electrical department for the resort and the site?s electrical system improvements to expand the resort into more of a year-round destination.
In addition to ski lifts and the other electrical devices needed to keep the hills operating, there are high-powered snow guns needed to manufacture enough fresh powder to enable skiing when the weather isn?t cooperating.
?When we are running heavy snow-making loads, we are running almost 7.2 MVA, so essentially we needed a load-shedding sequence to keep us under our 5 MVA cap,? says Yeager. ?We have six diesel generators on site, varying in size from 125 kilowatts (KW) to 1600 KW. The largest (the 1600 KW) runs the pump house.?
To control its load-shedding program, Bear Creek turned to Schneider Electric and its Square D® Engineering Services for a customized power monitoring solution.
