Saving on energy is one of the simplest ways to increase profit. In retail stores energy costs are not of the biggest costs that you will incur but it does influence your margins considerably. Energy savings of about 20% is the same as a 5% price increase in your sales according to the Carbon Trust.
Our Online energy management services are easily adaptable to the retail environment. Some of our clients include: Woolworths, Spar and Pick and Pay. After all the information is gathered by our Power-Star meter we can establish what and where the most energy is being used.
We can formulate an energy plan in reducing costs by looking at elements like the lighting and refrigeration units. Some retail stores employ an Energy Manager to look after the energy consumption and he has to formulate an energy plan. With our trained staff and engineers we can circumvent this step. We will be able to assist in various ways in reducing your carbon footprint.
Detailed measurement also allows for bill verification exercises with great results. The bill verification exercise become even more important in areas with less efficient city councils (such as Johannesburg) where we see many sites using Power-Star data purely for bill verification purposes. tariff analysis is also a great opportunity to lower costs by evaluating your current Tariff charges and looking on our database for a more cost effective Tariff. In addition to monetary benefits, there are social and environmental advantages. As the consumer is becoming increasingly interested and aware of these situations, they prefer to support retailers who actively thinks about the environment.
