Energy Saving Measures

Simple measures can quickly take the pressure off stretched energy budgets. This applies not only in older less efficient buildings, systems and equipment but also new installations where procurement on a lowest first-cost basis, or poor maintenance and operating procedures, make energy losses almost inevitable.

As this topic advises, solutions may be virtually cost-free, easy to implement and bring repeated savings. Some can replace capital spending. An example is managing away peak loads on a supply transformer with limited capacity that is constraining business growth.
