Ways to Conserve Electricity in Commercial Sites

Commercial based, there are many electricity-usage elements to be looked in to and offset toward a great compounding effect.

A Power Factor Correction System would be the main and immediate installation that is highly recommended, as the majority of electricity management within large commercial sites are using pumps, motors, fans – this system alone can reduce up to 20% off your bill, and doesn’t require a lot of alteration work or replacement parts to keep well maintained as it’s a sustainable system.

More than 50% of a businesses electricity running costs can be in the associated elements above, and has a great deal of potential to increase efficiency and effectiveness.

It’s very well the little apparatus that energy companies don’t want you knowing about, and is one of the biggest ways to conserve electricity in any commercial electrical distribution system.

The remainder of energy consumption areas aren’t in any particular order of savings as you’d need to have an on-site evaluation done to check which has more output.

So here they are;

Sensors that automatically turn off lighting and other electricity consuming elements or applications when they are not in use and no one is in the location, such as car parks, corridors/hallways, garages, entrances etc..

Effective lighting usage can be a big matter as a large part of the day is under lights and if the company is in operation for long periods of the day, then this could be a big saver, along with giving greater health benefits too. For instance if currently using a lighting system that produces more watts of output and is replaced with more than half the amount although still giving the exact same amount of illumination, then you’ve just reduced your lighting costs by 50%.

Solar energy to produce your own electricity back into the grid, however not every application will be suitable due to a few reasons. One being the costs initially involved, secondly the replacement of solar panels after 10 years if they aren’t the higher quality panels and aren’t sustained well, thirdly if the solar panels aren’t absorbing enough of the natural sunlight then it’s useless for the savings to take place, e.g. tree’s or infrastructure blocking sunlight from the panels.

Solar hot water systems are another additional way to reduce your energy bills, similar to that of the solar panels although a separate system and panel altogether. Together with the solar panels there are still government-funded incentives to install these solar systems so are worthwhile looking into, in combination with the technology advancing.

Heating and cooling systems are becoming more and more efficient and are another possible way to eliminate electricity generation. Mainly being to purchase the most efficient system upfront being more effective to maintain longterm and hassle free, whilst using the thermostat wisely – Depending on the application again.

Energy efficient equipment being printers, copiers, computers, monitors equate to an extremely large amount when in an office environment so investing in energy-efficient appliances can heavily reduce a companies electricity bill. Along with data-server rooms producing a great deal of heat and electricity and must be adhered to with an effective way of keeping cool.

Some machines, systems and energy-required elements can be used extensively for hours on end throughout the day. Recent findings have shown a trend towards green commercial buildings generating higher tenant retention (as employees are happier and more productive in such an environment), quicker lease-up periods, greater returns for investors.

In commercial situations, electricity can equate for more than 50% of a companies electricity costs, which if not creating the most efficient way of energy usage, does eventuate in reduced profits and larger overheads, simply because of inefficient and poorly thought out ways to conserve electricity in commercial sites.

The average Aussie household produces approximately 13 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year – that’s a lot! This type of pollution is largely produced from domestic and commercial activities such as heating elements, all moving parts and lighting. As you can see they’re many ways to tackle this global issue throughout households, businesses and factory settings by regulating an energy management system.

The price of electricity will continue to increase, whilst most people don’t know how to approach the situation on the whole and carbon pollution is always going to be around so everyone must be doing there bit – what are you doing about it?

They all add up to a compounding effect. And the trick is to find out where your greatest savings are in particular to your situation. To find out you’d need an economical-focused Electrician, and that’s where Powersec come in.

Put your money back in your pocket and invest into something that you’re passion about and not toward pollution into the atmosphere which at the end of all days we all suffer, especially the next generations of children who are to come.

Everyone knows climate change is real. Time to get real…
