Three Rivers wanted to reduce their impact on the environment by reducing electricity consumption and their carbon emissions.
Powerstar were challenged to improve Three Rivers’ carbon footprint through reduced energy consumption, whilst causing minimal disruption to the usual venue activities.
Powerstar is renowned for their hassle free approach to energy saving. With a dedicated yet non-disruptive approach to determining and even applying the savings through their unique voltage optimisation system, at no time whatsoever was the normal business operations at Three Rivers jeopardised. From site surveys to installation, Powerstar ensured that the facilities and services offered by Three Rivers remained unaffected.
What would be affected however was Three Rivers’ voltage output, which was reduced to accordingly match the electrical needs of their appliances. In turn, the reduced voltage would as requested, improve the clubs carbon footprint, reduce their energy consumption and reduce their electricity spend.
