Our Frequently Asked Questions

LED lights bring several advantages such as energy efficiency, durability, long lifespan, no UV emissions, no heat, no flicker and dramatically reduced maintenance requirements. This translates into energy savings, maintenance savings and an overall reduction in cost of ownership over the product’s lifetime.

LED tubes which are used to replace conventional fluorescent tubes are made from “unbreakable” plastic not glass and contain no mercury. Fluorescent tubes “flicker” as they age and this can cause issues for migraine sufferers or epileptics. LED tubes do not flicker

LED lights have numerous environmental benefits over conventional lamps. LED lights use between 50%-90% less energy which also means large carbon emission reductions, they do not contain mercury, they last up to 20 times longer and they are made from fully recyclable materials. 

No. Solar PV systems must be installed by an accredited solar installer and approval from the distribution network provider must be obtained prior to any installation works commencing. The panels and inverter must be approved by the Clean Energy Council. 

The Network Connection Agreement highlights the terms and conditions for the safe connection of your system to the local electricity network. An agreement must be in place for your solar power system to be connected to the network and feed power back into the electricity grid. This agreement ensures that your system meets all standards for safety purposes.

The Power Purchase Agreement is an agreement between you and a service provider for the purchase of electricity generated by a solar system. Generally, the kW cost is lower that the kW cost of the retail energy company.

Yes, the AC drive can save you money on operating cost, when the load and motor speed can be varied. By reducing the speed of the motor, you will consume less energy, which will reduce your electric bill.

The return on investment of viable cogeneration units will most likely be five to ten years. The economics of cogeneration are largely driven by the relative advantage of generating electricity and the useful source of heat rather than depending on electricity from the grid. 

This is one of the best applications for an AC drive. In most fan/pump applications, there is a need to vary the output of the fan/pump. This is very easy to achieve with an AC drive. Plus you get the benefit of reduced energy cost of running the motor!

The difference is the speed that the motor can run, when at full speed. With a soft start starter, the motor is reduced voltage started, and then when the motor is at full speed, or a timing circuit has timed out, a “running by-pass contractor” pulls in and the motor continues to run at full base speed. With a VSD (Variable Speed Drive) or VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) the motor will soft start, and you can vary the speed of the motor, varying the output frequency from the VSD or VFD. 

CHP(Combined Heat and Power) is a form of distributed generation, which is located at or near the energy-consuming facility, whereas conventional generation takes place in large centrally-located power plants. CHP’s higher efficiency comes from recovering the heat normally lost in power generation or industrial processes to provide heating or cooling on site, or to generate additional electricity. CHP’s inherent higher efficiency and elimination of transmission and distribution losses from the central power plant results in reduced primary energy use and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
