In April, Ballynagran Energy Plus+ started delivering energy monitors to households in the area. Feedback is excellent and households are seeing significant savings from more considered electricity consumption.
Some of the examples of savings include:
- Identification of a faulty well water pump pressure switch which was causing the pump to run for extended periods.
- Identification of a faulty immersion timer which was resulted in the immersion being on during the day rather than at night rate (dual rate).
- Identification of the cost of running external halogen security lights which were coming on during the night – these have now been replaced with LED lamps.
- Allowing householders to identify particular items in the house which were a consistently high user of electricity such as GU10 halogen bulbs in downlighters or light fittings.
We believe that typical savings of 11 to 20% in electricity usage from greater awareness and monitoring will be achieved by most households using these monitors.
There are still a few monitors in stock.
