In an effort to reduce energy consumption, the Department of Education has trialled a self-contained energy control product that can control power use across various New South Wales schools. Following the trial of the product, it is now available for purchase to all schools in New South Wales through the Department of Education website.
The product, Energy Misers, can control the power leading into vending machines, glass door fridges and office appliances, and switch the power off when the item is not in use, thereby reducing energy consumption and operating costs.
According to Bare Naked Technologies, the product can save up to 40 percent on energy consumption.
The product range is able to cater to a large number of needs. The Energy Misers range includes a VendingMiser for cold drink vending machines, a CoolerMiser for glass door fridges – both of which are often forgotten when people are thinking about saving energy – and a PlugMiser, which can be used on other ‘always on’ electrical equipment.
“This product is not new in the market; however, with the increasing need to reduce energy costs, it is becoming a viable solution for many business owners,” says a Bare Naked Technologies spokesperson. “Energy is fast becoming a major concern for small and large businesses alike. With the looming carbon tax increases, businesses are on the lookout for ways to reduce their costs, especially when it comes to energy.”
