The Council of the City of Sydney


City of Sydney logo - energy savings solutions by Ecosave

Congratulations to the Ecosave team, I met today with Steve and Raj at the kings Cross Car Park to review the installation. I was very happy with the outcome from a savings level (Ecosave met what they had proposed), and from the quality of the installation and the project management. I was very interested in the solutions that were chosen, and the team were able to explain the solutions and implementation process. Even though this was a relatively small site I am very pleased with the progress…

Well done on Saturday’s Epsom Road VPO install…I have reviewed the energy data from the main board at Epsom Road – and you can see a definite drop since Saturday’s shut-down (green line), long may this continue…..Thanks and well done Ben.

I recently met with senior property management and I am pleased to say the feedback was excellent. The team were particularly impressed with Ecosave’s communications and it’s good to see your hard work has paid off…Ecosave’s project management approach has been outstanding and the team’s ability to install within a complex environment has been a great success. I have been especially impressed with Ecosave’s ability to overcome implementation issues and challenges.

Reviews about Ecosave from Schools and Universities

 

Molong Central School, NSW


Ecosave Client Testimonials - Molong Central School

I would like to commend the work that Ecosave has recently completed in our school in upgrading our lights to LED. The large job was handled professionally the finished product is of the highest quality. Right from the beginning of the job the communication that took place was transparent and informative. The contractors that were employed applied great care when fitting the lights and cleaned up appropriately. There was minimal disruption to the school day and most of the work was completed in the absence of staff and students. I would be happy to recommend Ecosave to any other School or business who may be contemplating changing their light to LED.

Ecosave Client Testimonials - Lane Cove West Public School NSW

…Ecosave was the company responsible for the installation of the LED lighting and did a great job, with minimal disruption to the running of the school, even completing work at weekends when required, and by keeping the channels of communication open. The electricians were friendly and the supervisors made sure that the school’s needs were taken into consideration. Lane Cove West is looking forward to continuing its quest to be a sustainable, energy saving school and Ecosave has assisted us on the road to achieving this goal.

CIBA Chemicals


Just a note to say that the installation of your Light Eco units went smoothly and that the difference in light levels in economy mode is imperceptible.
Also, thank you for the installation report; we can now also prove on paper what has been achieved. A saving of 35.3 % on the lighting component of the electricity bill is certainly worth the investment and a payback period of 28 months is 4 months better than originally quoted.

Sara Lee


We would like to confirm receipt of your Site Installation Report for the Light Eco Units, which have been installed at our Lisarow plant. In view of the original proposal which quoted 30% energy savings, we are pleased to note that the actual measured energy savings on the before and after test are 36% average for the 13 circuits involved. The resulting payback period reduction from 25 months to 19 months and ROI increase from 48% to 63% makes this rather better than expected investment. As a company with a SEDA Bronze rating we are proud of this positive impact this installation has helped us achieve. We also expect this should assist us to achieve a higher SEDA rating. We are also pleased that the donation of 65 seedlings will have a positive impact on the environment. In addition to the financial considerations we commend your worth-wile efforts in energy conservation.

I wanted to thank you for the great support that your team has been providing to us at Stockland Balgowlah as part of the sub metering review. The results are starting to crystallise with March 2011 was approximately 18% lower than March 2010, even though it was hotter and more humid in March 2011 (the traditional enemy of energy savings).

 

– Anthony Girling – Facilities Manager

 


 

Your team has been enormously patient as we have had numerous site changes. The focus has been on schedules, working with FVAC contractors, and trending BMS issues (a service not provided by other metering providers.) We are starting to see some excellent outcomes and look forward to working together on this.

Energy Savings – saving money, saving resources and saving the environment is at the heart of what we do.

Our motto is to help our clients save money and save resources. We achieve this by designing and implementing quality energy savings solutions with guaranteed savings.

Since 2002, Ecosave has achieved more than $130 Million in energy savings for our clients in Australia, New Zealand and the United States through our Guaranteed Energy Savings Projects / GESPs, Energy Performance Contracting / EPC and our Ecosave Services Agreements / ESA.

In addition to these energy savings, our quality energy savings solutions has also benefited the environment quite significantly.

For instance, the energy savings work we’ve done over the years has substantially reduced the amount of carbon emissions our clients would otherwise typically produce; in that regard, more than  147,160 tonnes of CO2 has been avoided as a direct result of the thousands of energy conservation measures we’ve implemented for our clients. This is equivalent to planting 3,813,812 tree seedlings  – and growing them for 10 years! Another way to put it: its the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by 31,085 cars – driven for one year! Alternatively, it’s similar to recycling waste from 6,672 garbage trucks instead of that same waste being land-filled.

Ecosave has a proud tradition of designing and implementing quality energy savings solutions. We specialise in helping clients achieve energy savings. Ecosave utilises a wide range of energy conservation measures and we are not limited to any particular ECM technology or product line; that’s because we’re ‘product agnostic’ and take a holistic approach to energy conservation. Our energy savings projects are fixed price solutions with guaranteed savings which means our proposition represents reduced business risk and high return on investment.

 

Ecosave are specialists at identifying energy savings opportunities across a wide range of facilities and built environments. For a complimentary consultation to explore energy savings potential in your organisation, contact the energy savings experts today!
