Retail

Retail is a challenging environment. High volumes, low margins, many stock lines, a stack of competition. Small changes can deliver big results. Improved merchandise visibility, better thermal comfort, extended dwell times can all contribute to achieving stronger metrics. High energy usage from HVAC, refrigeration and lighting and long operating hours amount to large electricity bills. An efficiency upgrade can save big dollars in electricity bills and take some pressure off the business. There are numerous types of retail businesses that can benefit from reduced energy costs, including supermarkets, service stations, fast food restaurants, shopping centres and retail stores. Contact Energywise to discuss how your business may benefit from an energy saving upgrade. Most of our clients have already made some energy efficiency improvements – we then identify areas where money is still being wasted and deliver further savings and operational benefits for your business.

“In my role I am responsible for the operations of over 50 supermarket stores in SA and QLD. In recent years energy prices have impacted on our bottom line, so my challenge was to find an energy saving solution that would deliver significant energy savings whilst not impacting on our core business – serving the local community. Energywise showed us commitment and backed their promises with guarantees. With a myriad of options on the market, we felt comfortable to partner with Energywise and they have delivered on their promises and we have achieved excellent energy savings. What more could we ask for? We are now investigating more opportunities with Energywise.”

“We are always looking for ways to improve the efficiency of our business. Installing the Ark has been a simple way to save energy and help protect the plant and equipment at our service station and fast food restaurant. We made the right decision by installing the Ark.”

-Owner, BP Service Station, Tenant Creek

“We’d been looking for the best ways to lower our energy use and carbon footprint for years when the Energywise team first started working with us. Their voltage optimisation unit ticked all the boxes; simple and robust enough for harsh remote conditions, quick return on investment, and supplementary benefits in surge protection that has already paid for itself. The Ark units have delivered 14% savings year on year, and are on track to pay themselves off quicker than budgeted. Energywise bring a range of innovative solutions to our business that will benefit us for years to come.”

-General Manager Operations, Arnhem Land Progress Association

“We were approached by Energywise with a concept to reduce our power consumption by installing the Ark system in 2 of our supermarkets. What impressed me most about Energywise was that the initial 2 sites we chose to run with were deemed unsuitable. This honest upfront approach certainly helped in our decision to move forward and continue the project.
The results speak for themselves and we are now moving to the next stage and investigating further installations throughout our store network.”

-Director, Ritchies Supa IGA

It was easy, I didn’t have to do a thing. I just signed it and left it to Energywise and they did it all. If you are after a company that makes it easy and takes care of it all for you, then Energywise are the ones to talk to. We’ve been looking at around a 40% reduction in our bills, which is well above target and fantastic.

We’re very comfortable to recommend Energywise.

-Owner, Riverina Ski Sports

The project was really smooth. We had no hiccups whatsoever. Energywise and their installers made it really easy for us, it was fantastic actually. The brightness of the shop is completely different to what we had before. We've picked up sales and the customers are really satisfied and happy with the lights. It's a different feel across the whole shop. We installed solar, lighting and voltage optimisation, and it’s a massive impact on our business. With any business today, electricity is one of the costs that everyone is trying to focus on and reduce.
