After an audit helped the owners of Berwicks Office Technology reduce energy costs in its 900 sqm building in Brisbane’s West End. Upgrading to a new digital metering system helped Berwicks to track spikes in energy use, while upgrading lighting made the parking garage safer and more energy efficient. It also led the company to replace its 200 fluorescent tubes with LEDs, resulting in a better visual experience for customers and staff, as well as reducing its electricity needs by around 30,000 kWh a year.
