Woolworths Melrose Arch

Prior to electricity saving initiatives, the Woolworths branch located in Melrose Arch Johannesburg was experiencing an excess voltage supply of 239V from the recommended industry norm of 220V. Electricity supplied in excess creates a negative impact on the optimum functionality of electronically powered equipment, as well as contributing to the rising cost of electricity. An independent group of metering surveyors, Energy Cybernetics, was appointed to audit power savings achieved at the Woolworths branch by conducting a power consumption audit prior to and after the installation of a power optimization unit, known as PowerStar©.
