The City and Country Hotel Group was seeking a way to reduce their energy consumption as part of their corporate and social responsibility. The group prides itself on luxury and uncompromising service and reducing energy can be a difficult task. For example a hotel may look to encourage guests to reuse towels and shampoo but at the same time, customers expect a certain level of quality and service based on where they stay. The hotel was looking for a proven and reliable energy saving system that had minimal disruption to operations and did not have a negative effect on customer experience.
A Powerstar 179kVA system with circuit protection was installed on site providing overall energy consumption reduction of 21.4% which was 13.2% higher than the guaranteed saving of 8.2%. Considerable savings were made on the air conditioning units and catering facilities.

Along with the overall benefits of a greener business with significantly reduced energy costs, the hotel has saved 44.9 tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum with a reduction of 85,499kWh per year.
