What did we do for K J Tait and Aberdeen Standard Investments?

MY ZeERO Power Distribution Monitors (PDMs) were deployed in to a number of shopping centres in order to provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional sub-metering. We measure the majority of circuits within the LV switch rooms and provide a more granular real time view on the energy consumption by major plant equipment and landlord assets.
Using MY ZeERO's reporting and alerting capabilities, KJ Tait are providing an enhanced level of Facilities Management service.

The Results.

To date, K J Tait have implemented the MeasureMyEnergy service into 19 Aberdeen Standard buildings.

These buildings have all benefited from significant reductions in energy consumption attributable to the observations of and actions taken by K J Tait since MY ZeERO technology was installed.
One example of this was County Mall Shopping Centre in Crawley, Sussex, which saw a reduction of 20% and an estimated annual saving of £90,000.

The Customer's view.

“The information the system provides helps us to better manage and control energy consumption at each site. It allows us to identify areas of potential waste as well as managing the energy within tighter parameters. It also highlights in which areas we should potentially invest in other energy saving measures”
 
“We would expect the decision to install MeasureMyEnergy to payback within the first year based on the examples above as well as other properties we have been engaged in”
Richard Lytle, Facilities Director for K J Tait Engineers
