A Level 2 energy audit at Cairns Hardware found tens of thousands of dollars in potential annual energy savings. $5500 a year would be saved simply by changing to a more appropriate energy tariff; $12,000 a year could be saved by replacing lighting on the company’s three sites with LEDs. Even air conditioning bills could be reduced, either via stronger air-curtains or automatic doors (a potential saving of $11,500 per annum).  The company acted quickly, and has already begun making savings.
