Energy monitoring

The more you know about energy usage in your business the more you can control it. We will work with you to design a solar PV system that delivers the level of monitoring your individual circumstances require. A range of options for monitoring generation and/or usage annually, or for the life of your system are available.

These can include advanced monitoring through solar analytics and smart metering. This allows you to see in real time how your onsite energy consumption is tracking against your solar generation. It can also inform you of system underperformance or faults.  

We can work with your business to determine the monitoring capabilities that will allow more efficient management of energy usage.

Voltage optimisation

Voltage optimisation is an electricity saving strategy and/or a device that controls reduction in the voltages received by a commercial energy consumer. Options include a fixed voltage adjustment or electronically regulating voltage automatically. Voltage optimisation systems are usually installed in series with the mains electrical supply to buildings and should be sized correctly for specific supplies.

Power Factor Correction (PFC)

Implementing PFC is essential for businesses running inductive equipment like transformers and electric motors. By optimising power factor, these businesses can significantly enhance their energy efficiency and reduce operational costs.  

PFC actively improves the efficiency of electrical systems, ensuring that power drawn from the grid is utilised more effectively. This leads to a reduction in wasted energy and subsequently lowers electricity bills. Moreover, for large businesses subject to demand charges, by improving power factor and minimising reactive power, businesses can mitigate the demand they place on the grid, resulting in a reduction in demand charges.

Investing in PFC enhances energy efficiency and yields measurable financial benefits by lowering operational expenses and optimising electricity usage.
