Confectioner Kinnertons cuts costs
Confectioner Kinnertons faced a huge increase in their kwh rate from their energy supplier, with their annual costs increasing 116 per cent owing to the energy crisis. They turned to voltage optimisation to protect their business from spiralling energy cost rises and benefit from its rapid payback and stable long-term results.
Following our survey, we guaranteed that the voltage optimiser would deliver a minimum saving of 7.22 per cent, which was further underpinned by Powerdown’s Savings Guarantee. This meant that they could budget and plan with these figures in mind, helping to protect against their increase in energy costs. As well as the Savings Guarantee offering Kinnertons 100 per cent of their money back in the event that savings were lower than projected, the confectioner is now saving 7.52 per cent on their energy bills following installation.
In addition, Kinnertons is also benefiting from a more stable power supply on site, with their equipment only drawing the energy that it needs to run at its optimal level, rather than having to work harder due to excess energy from the grid. As a result, the voltage optimiser will help increase the lifespan of the equipment and save on future expenditure by reducing ongoing maintenance and replacement costs across site. The voltage optimiser has also reduced Kinnerton’s carbon footprint and saved over 40 tonnes of harmful carbon emissions a year.
