Evaporative Cooling for Commercial & Industrial Facilities Webinar

Oct. 20 and 21
8 to 11 a.m.
Participants should plan to attend both days via WebEx webinar.

Evaporative cooling can be an energy efficient and cost-effective way to cool residential, industrial, and commercial facilities. When compared with standard mechanical cooling, evaporative cooling can provide substantial energy savings. This type of cooling can use several technologies including direct, indirect, or hybrid evaporative cooling, pre-cooling of condenser surfaces or “free cooling” with the use of a cooling tower. This course presents the science of evaporative cooling, various systems options, efficiency rating systems, typical commercial and industrial applications, integration with mechanical cooling, economic considerations, and recommended maintenance practices.

This class is free for Idaho Power customers. Please register by Oct. 14. To register, email with your name, title, company and mailing address. Training books will be mailed to you, so please ensure that your mailing address is the best address for you at this time.
