Burpengary Tavern is located north of Brisbane, it includes a Gaming Room, Bistro, Function Room and Drive Through Bottleshop. With electricity costs escalating in 2016, Negawatt Energy Solutions undertook an energy saving assessment and the Tavern owners considered the Building Tuner with some apprehensive anticipation.
Negawatt Energy installed modules on 3 Packaged Air Condition Units, and 3 Coolrooms including the main Bottleshop Coolroom. When another large coolroom was constructed in 2017 a module was included there from the outset.
As demonstrated in the Before and After baseline, there was an immediate and material reduction in energy usage, with annual savings estimated to exceed $20,000.
Building Tuner has subsequently assisted with electricity supply contract negotiations and the Tavern now enjoys “best in market” electricity rates
“We took over the Tavern in February 2018 and I was initially unsure about the Building Tuner that was already in place, but once I saw the savings it was delivering it was an easy decision to keep it on. My staff don’t need to do anything and we save money. The additional assistance with negotiating our electricity contracts has been invaluable, I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t work with these energy experts.” Nick Kalaf, Owner – Burpengary Tavern
