2. Inspect premises
3. Install Power Measurement Equipment
4. Consider detailed proposal
5. Implement

Step 1: Analyse your Bills

The first step in an energy assessment and evaluation project is to analyze the facility’s recent electric bills. For that we require a copy of your electricity bills going back twelve months and the return of a simple questionnaire. We then perform a high-level analysis that is easily understandable. It generates several graphs to assist in the interpretation of the data.

Our approach is to work with customers to determine which steps would be appropriate for their circumstances and objectives. This means we can identify, evaluate and implement cost-effective energy efficiency measures that will help you reduce wasting energy.

Correct Billing

We verify that the proper billing procedures are used by your Electricity Supplier to ensure that you are billed correctly for your electricity usage.

Tariff Optimisation

You are advised on the most cost effective tariff. Depending on the tariffs offered by the electricity supplier and the loads under your control, you can reduce energy costs in a variety of ways. You may be able to take advantage of tariffs offered by utilities which suffer from a lack of capacity.

For instance, a demand curtailment agreement or time of use tariff allows you to benefit from an attractive energy rate. By negotiating the most advantageous supply agreements and making the best use of available tariffs, you can optimise the cost of your electricity.

Step 2: Premises Inspection

At your convenience, one of our specialists will visit your premises and perform the following tasks:

  • Carry out a thorough inspection of your electrical installation.
  • Analyse your premises in order to determine essential features, which could lead to further energy savings.
  • Conduct on-site discussions to facilitate the best solution for you.

Step 3: Power Measurement

We install very accurate Power Measurement Equipment at the point of entry. This is Web based and the user-friendly interface displays the state of your electrical installation in real time. You could enter the website at any time and examine the graphic display yourself. The installation is monitored for a suitable period, usually a week or two, after which it is expertly analyzed. This data is used to formulate a strategy against needless energy waste.

Step 4: Detailed Proposal

Based on the cost-benefit analysis, the information gathered during the premises inspection, discussions with you and data received from our intensive monitoring system, you are presented with a proposal for the most cost effective Peak Demand measures you can take to ensure Energy Efficiency.* With PowerOptimal you know you are getting the best advice in the industry from a highly qualified and experienced team working only on your behalf.
