ANL Badgery’s Creek
Client:ANL Badgery's Creek
Australian Native Landscapes (ANL) on-boarded their Badgery’s Creek location to EnergyLink with sub-metering visibility. The overnight and weekend load on site was often found to be as high as 30 kW on the main meter, with sub-metering tracing the majority back to the Mechanics Workshop.
With the large overnight loads seen on this board and others, the site electrician was tasked with installing time clocks throughout the site covering air conditioning units, hot water systems, and Zip hot water units. The overnight load has since reduced to 9/10 kW consistently, enabling monthly reductions by an average of 7.7 MWh per month.
This has proven to be an effective way of implementing changes. By assigning specific tasks to someone with site familiarity, their ownership speeds up the process rather than occupying the facility manager’s time. These changes started to be implemented in June and have energy reductions reflected since July 2016.
