Business owners and facilities managers are always on the lookout for ways to reduce costs and increase revenue. Because of recent improvements and shrinking costs, lighting retrofits — replacing traditional lamps and controls to energy-efficient LED systems — have emerged as one of the easiest, most affordable ways to lower your electric bill and sharpen your budget through energy conservation.
Today’s LED bulbs are six to seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights, cut energy use by more than 80 percent and often last more than 25 times longer. When controls are applied at the retrofit stage, savings can approach 90%.
Utility Alliance are certified by The Carbon Trust to provide upgrade grants, and all our retrofits allow you to apply for Enhanced Capital Allowances.
Over-voltage supply means over-paying for your energy. UK/EU standards dictate voltage levels of between 207V – 243V although our unique voltages levels in the UK of between 216v – 253v and an average 242v, creates the opportunity to reduce voltage to a level where appliances will function most efficiently between 220v – 230v. Shifting voltage supply from 242V to 222V can save upto 10% on your electricity bill and go a long way to conserving energy
About 40% of energy costs for the average commercial building are spent on heating, cooling and ventilation. It makes sense to be able to control this cost at all times. Smart Thermostats provide a simple to use interface and app integration that allows you or your employees to set rules and control the temperature of your office remotely via a mobile phone.
This kind of flexibility means that you can guarantee employees aren’t wandering into a freezing cold office in the mornings, or overheating in the afternoons during summer. It also allows one person (or a few people) to be in charge, meaning there are no more thermostat wars.
Another bonus to having a connected thermostat is that is allows you to monitor energy usage, see where there it’s being wasted, tighten up on your set points and therefore save money on your bills through energy conservation
Our energy efficiency retrofits help clients find better ways to heat and cool, illuminate and insulate warehouses, offices, factories, schools and stores. Our energy retrofits drive down operating costs, revitalize ageing buildings and eliminate costly maintenance issues.
Energy and cost-saving projects are based on customer agreed key performance indicators that have been identified to increase system reliability, reduce costs and emissions and always deliver healthier, more productive workspaces.
Funding Retrofits depends on the project type and value. Projects can be funded via a variety of methods ranging from adding the cost to your monthly energy bills through Energy Saving Performance Contracts (ESPC) that provide comprehensive energy savings for public and private sector organisations, at little or no upfront cost as the ESPC is paid for out of shared savings.
As each project is unique we conduct a feasibility study to determine potential costs and savings and any financial risks of the investments.
