Measurement and verification panelboards (MVP)
Measurement and Verification Panelboards (MVP), an enclosed panelboard capable of measuring lighting and plug load energy use at the individual circuit level. MVP panelboards provide customers with visibility into more detailed energy use information, which enables improved energy management and opportunities for cost saving and sustainability efforts. MVP panelboards monitor energy usage by plug load, circuit, zone, space, or complete lighting system, allowing facility managers to isolate energy use with improved precision. Energy managers can use existing building management software, or customized MVP software to analyze the data and locate new opportunities for greater energy efficiency and savings.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
