The Problem

The Logan REC Club management were searching for ways to reduce their energy costs at a time when commercial solar was not considered viable.  The Club needed a strategy that worked within their budget constraints and that delivered energy cost savings within a 4 year payback period.

What We Found

»  27% of energy used was from lighting
»  10% of energy used was from hand dryers
»  Uncorrected power factor was costing the Club $1,000 per month
»  Approx. 45% of the Club’s power usage was at night

Integrated Solution

By conducting an Electrical Energy Audit Investigation, we learned how and when the site consumed its energy.  This was a key component to knowing which energy saving solutions produced the greatest savings results for the least amount of investment, which included:

  • Replacing existing lighting with high quality LED lights

  • On-Site generation of energy by installing a 24kW Solar PV System

  • A review of the Club’s tariff / electricity billing rates

  • A Power Factor Correction Unit was installed as phase 2

Project Outcomes

15% Reduction in Annual Bill Cost
21% Reduction in Carbon Emissions
