Commercial/Industrial Training

Keeping up with the latest in commercial and industrial energy efficiency measures and processes is important. We host and support a variety of in-person and online training opportunities. Contact us at 208-388-5099 or training@idahopower.com to learn more.

Online Training Opportunities

Lighting Design Lab Training
The Lighting Design Lab regularly offers a variety of online training courses.

NXT Level Lighting
Comprehensive lighting training for individuals who work in the commercial/industrial lighting retrofit market. NXT Level helps individuals to better design, sell and install advanced retrofit projects to fit their customer’s needs. Individuals and companies who apply may be eligible to earn the NXT Level designation and be listed on NXT Level’s Designation List. The online training covers lighting concepts, technologies, economics, sales techniques, codes and utility programs. Training takes 8 to 12 hours to complete and can earn you 8 CEUs.

Wastewater Treatment Virtual In-Plant Training
The Better Plants Program developed a virtual webinar series designed to help wastewater treatment systems to operate cost effectively, sustainably, and lower their carbon footprint. The webinars will be instructed by wastewater and energy professionals. Incorporating energy efficiency practices may allow eligibility for Idaho Power sponsored incentives. Contact Curtis Willis, cwillis@idahopower.com for more information.

Commercial and Industrial Fan System Training
June 14 and 16, 2022
8 to 11 a.m. MST
Participants should plan to attend both days via webinar.

The class will introduce you to cost-effective methods of recovering wasted heat and show cases where the payback of industrial and commercial fan systems are between zero and three years. You will learn how to estimate the operating costs of fan systems and analyze optimization opportunities using the recently released MEASUR software from the US Department of Energy (DOE). We’ll look at the fan affinity laws and how you can use them to estimate the savings of using a variable-frequency drive (VFD) to slow the fan if it’s developing more pressure and flow than the process needs. We’ll focus on best VFD installation practices you can apply to ensure your VFD-driven fans are as reliable as possible.

HVAC System Training
June 28 and 30, 2022
9 to 11:30 a.m. MST
Participants should plan to attend both days via webinar.

The class will teach the processes and procedures involved in verifying equipment performance as related to incentive application and awards. Specifically, the course offers a review of HVAC systems and equipment, the process of evaluating and testing HVAC equipment, how to identify energy-conservation measures by using baseline data, and how to measure and verify equipment performance.

Energy Management Systems Training
July 26 and 28, 2022
9 to 11:30 a.m. MST
Participants should plan to attend both days via webinar

The class explores the reality of energy-management systems (EMS) and how they are not a one-size-fits-all endeavor and how each one needs its one requirement and parameter for success. Getting the most energy savings out of your HVAC requires building adjustable systems, such as variable-speed drives (VSD) or demand limiting, as opposed to simple on/off control. However, these strategies often make it more challenging to keep persistent energy savings over time. EMS and analytics are often offered up as a solution to this problem.
