Your electricity supply is both a powerful and yet
expensive resource, so it only makes sense to ensure that your company is
getting the best value for money for the energy it is using. Estil can carry out
energy audits by completing the following:
Analysing your electricity bill to ensure you are not paying over the
odds for not just your kWh usage, but also that your maximum demand figure and capacity charges are not excessive and advising where savings can be made.
Analysing power factor and advising where it is advisable to
install power factor correction equipment to reduce maximum demand. Power factor
correction equipment can also maximise the energy available from existing
installations where supplies and power available is limited.
Examining existing lighting to ensure what is installed is not
only emitting the correct lighting levels for the areas being illuminated but is
also energy efficient. Significant energy reduction and therefore cost savings
can be made by installing energy efficient lighting.

By assessing what you already have in place the potential
savings that can be made can be staggering. The client that the above survey was
carried out for had no idea his existing lighting was costing so much to run and
he is shortly increasing production from 24 hours a day 5 days a week (as shown
in the survey) to 24 hours a day 7 days a week so his savings will be even

can be funded by interest free loans available from the Carbon Trust. Loans are
available for energy saving items of equipment such as variable speed drives and
energy saving lighting. Loans have criteria that have to be met in order for the
company to qualify, but often these loans can help offset the initial capital
outlay for the equipment and its installation against the savings that will be
