The Problem

Recent changes in Laminex’s billing structure along with rising energy cost were the catalysts for Laminex’s decision to explore at all options available to reduce their electricity costs.


The Consequences

Higher energy costs were having a large impact on Laminex’s running costs.


Our Solution

This was a truly holistic approach that coupled three different technologies to help reduce costs


The Benefits

The above solutions ensured the building reduced their kW consumption due to the LED upgrade, reduced their kVA demand with the help of our PFC system and then reduce their power bill even further with their 97.6kW solar system that is now generating power 365 days a year and helping further reduce their power bill.
