The Union Jack Hotel has power bills of around $13,000 to $15,000 per month. After the results of two energy assessments were in, the business knew it would save over $3000 by switching to LED lights, and more by installing a key card system for guests (to ensure lights and air conditioning turn off when guests are out).  Further air conditioning savings (30 per cent) were possible by upgrading to a more efficient system. These and other changes immediately save the business slash its electricity spend by 14 per cent.
