HOW TO BEAT POWER PENALTIES
By simply upgrading your lighting and control systems, the proposed punitive tariffs that will be progressively imposed on commercial and industrial users of electricity in terms of the Energy Conservation Scheme (ECS) and Power Conservation Programme (PCP) of the Department of Minerals and Energy (DME), can be effectively combated – quickly and efficiently.
Lighting consumes about 14% of all electricity within South Africa (source Eskom), which, if one excludes the mining industry, will be closer to 20% for all other users.
During the last three years, VOLTEX LIGHTING has on average been able to reduce the lighting load by 40%, thereby potentially reducing the total load by 8% for many leading South African companies. The requirement of the DME is for an overall reduction of 10% in electricity consumption, otherwise a set of penalty tariffs will come into effect.
By proactively converting to modern lighting technologies through the introduction of improved optics, electronic ballasts, occupancy sensors, lighting controls and state-of-the-art lamps, Voltex Lighting can ensure that electricity users will achieve a substantial reduction in electrical power consumption, with attractive financial pay backs.
VOLTEX LIGHTING is qualified to conduct in-depth lighting audits, whereby a team of experts will quickly ascertain the level of savings which can be achieved. It is advisable to be proactive and to take the step towards substantial power savings in order to avoid the pending power penalties.
