The Vineyard Hotel
Reduction in energy bills of over R300 000.
Power-Star meters have been installed and in use at the Vineyard Hotel for over four years. As the hotel has a clear vision for energy efficiency and strives to be environmentally conscious. Initially the council billing matched very well with Power-Star data. However, in April 2012 the Vineyard Hotel noticed that there was a significant change in the council demand (kVA) readings that was not reflected in the Power-Star readings.
The Power-Star Utility Bill Verification service was used. Utility bills were corrected after our meter had different energy readings than that of the city council. The bills were amended by the council. Subsequently more meters have been installed by The Red Coronation group, to verify utility bills.
“The council investigated their own meter – and after subsequent correction, the readings again matched with those of Power-Star.”
