Energy Saving Solutions

Did you know?

Normal bulbs convert a lot of their energy into heat and the rest into light. Energy saving bulbs convert almost all of their energy into light. It is therefore possible to change the bulbs to a much lower wattage output when switching to energy saving bulbs. The same amount of light is obtained, while the energy consumption is reduced dramatically.

Eskom rebates

Eskom is encouraging commercial energy consumers to save electricity by presenting the “Eskom Standard Product” offer. This is a project where all the light bulbs on your premises are switched to energy saving bulbs and, depending on the type of lighting, Eskom refunds the client up to 100% of the project cost! This is a very innovative and efficient way of converting to an eco-friendly environment, and the monthly savings are radical. The usual bulb replacements include spot lights or high bay lights i.e. 400W Mercury vapour or High pressure sodium bulbs being switched to 125W Compact fluorescent lights, and fluorescent tubes being switched to energy savings fluorescent tubes.

Welcome to our world of energy saving

South Africa’s rising yet challenging economy forces every consumer and growing company, from the small home owner to the large industrial factory, to cut costs as far as possible, with one of the biggest expenses being the electricity bills.

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce and offer our energy saving solutions to you and your company. We have no doubt that your company will benefit tremendously from our program.

The aim of this program is to reduce your general electricity consumption.

How it works

By making use of an advanced high tech consumption metering device, our energy saving specialist is able to determine, calculate and monitor the following:

  • Active Energy (Class 2 EN61036)
  • Reactive Energy (Class 3 IEC1268)
  • Power Factor and COScp (Phase and Total)
  • Harmonics
  • Voltage Anomalies (Breaks and Spikes)
  • Integration Period: 5 / 3600SEC.
  • More than 30 days with integration periods of 15 mins.
  • 2MB Memory
  • 350V (Phase-Earth)
  • 600V (Phase-Phase)

Energy consumption and spikes can be determined over any period, which results in accurate calculations.

The standard procedure is to attach the metering device to the main supply on the distribution board for a period of five days. After the metering process is complete, a detailed report is generated, which reflects the energy consumption as well as suggestions for solutions on the electrical installation.

The whole premises is then carefully inspected and an analysis is done on electricity wastage. Suggestions and recommendations on the lighting, wiring and electrical appliances are presented. A quotation and cost saving estimation is provided with the report.

After the work has been completed, follow up tests are done to clearly reflect the success of the improvements, where costs and savings can be compared to determine the efficiency of the work performed.
