Blue NRG has partnered with Empower, a company that specialises in energy efficiency solutions, to help businesses save money by reducing their energy usage.
Energy Efficiency Solutions include but are not limited to:
- LED lighting
- Power factor correction– to reduce network demand charges
- Solar power– dramatically reduce peak energy demand
- Tariff optimisation– ensuring your distributor has placed you on the correct tariff
An Energy Savings Case Study
Through network tariff optimisation, a competitive Blue NRG rate and LED lighting, Empower helped one Blue NRG customer save up to $11,890 per annum in electrcity costs.
LED lighting can help to dramatically reduce your electricity usage resulting in lower electricity bills. Depending on your existing lighting system, you could realise reductions of up to 50%. Best of all LED bulbs last up to eight times longer than traditional lighting technology in most homes and offices.
Solar power can help deliver great savings to your business and is an affordable way to reduce your electricity costs. Going solar also demonstrates your business cares about sustainability and renewable energy.
If your business uses a lot of electricity during peak daytime hours, solar power can generate great savings for you.
Energy Management System
Become a smart business by installing an Energy Management System (EMS). An EMS allows you to track and monitor your energy usage in real time. It also enables remote access to your energy data via your smartphone, tablet or computer, anywhere in the world.
It also enables you to schedule the time of day your business requires electricity. This maximises energy efficiency that can generate great savings on your electricity bill.
Best of all, you’ll never have to worry about whether you left the lights on!
Power Factor Correction
With the introduction of demand tariffs from distributors, there has never been a better time to consider power factor correction (PFC) equipment.
Your electricity power factor is a measure of how efficiently your site uses electrical power and the quality of power your site uses. This is calculated in a Power Factor Rating.
This rating measures the power that is actually used (kW) versus the power that is supplied (KVA) to your site. PFC equipment can be used to lower your power factor to reduce your electricity costs.
