Hospitality NL’s Learn and Lead Webinar Series: New Ways to takeCHARGE of Your Business

New Ways to takeCHARGE of Your Business

takeCHARGE can help identify and pay for energy efficiency improvements for your business. You could get up to $50,000 back* when you invest in energy saving upgrades in heating and cooling, refrigeration, lighting and controls, and more. Most importantly, these energy saving investments will continue to contribute to your bottom line.

Get money back when you install programmable thermostats, occupancy sensors, LED wall packs, and high performance showerheads.

•Programmable Thermostats
Get money back when you upgrade to programmable thermostats and save hundreds of dollars in heating costs. Save energy and money by simply lowering the setting on your thermostat at the end of the business day by 5°C.

•LED Wall Packs
Get $25 back for each LED wall pack you install and save up to $50** a year for each fixture you replace. Wall packs are used to illuminate a wide variety of indoor and outdoor spaces including stairwells, perimeter lighting, parking lots and over entries and exits. Light Emitting Diode or LED wall packs are three to four times more efficient than standard lighting, such as traditional incandescent, metal halide (MH) or high pressure sodium (HPS) outdoor lighting fixtures.

•Occupancy Sensors
Get money back when you install occupancy sensors and save on lighting costs. On average businesses are able to decrease energy use by 30% using occupancy sensors to detect the presence or absence of people and turn lights on and off accordingly.

•High Performance Showerheads
Get $15 back for each high performance showerhead you install and save energy, money and water. Approximately 17% of the water we use each day is for showering. High performance showerheads can decrease water usage by over 25%, providing significant savings for hotels, bed & breakfasts, fitness centres and many other types of businesses.

* takeCHARGE will pay $0.10/kWh of your first year energy savings up to a maximum of $50,000.
** Savings may vary.

The hospitality sector has numerous opportunities for energy savings. On average over 60% of energy is used for lighting, heating or cooling accommodations. The new takeCHARGE Business Program can help save energy in these areas and more. And there are options for all types and sizes of business. Join us on December 4, 2013 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm for practical tips on how to save energy and money, and to see how takeCHARGE can help pay for energy efficiency improvements.

Presenters will be Peter Upshall and Chris House, Energy Management Engineers.
