Funded energy audits through Rhino

Funded energy audits through Rhino

Through funding made available through the National Business Initiative by the UK Government, SA businesses are eligible for a free 4-day energy audit. Such businesses need to be spending more than R750,000 per year on electricity. The  direct onsite support includes Energy Assessments, Identification of Energy Efficiency Opportunities and Follow up Support. Although many are benefitting from substantial savings, companies are not obliged to implement recommendations.

The Rhino Group’s Heather McEwan is an energy auditor accredited for this specific initiative and has already completed quite a number in the PE and surrounding areas. ‘There are a number of instances where identified annual savings exceed the initial investment”, Heather commented. “There is a rigorous compliance process so although the audits are free to clients, they can be assured of inherent value.”

There is a more comprehensive audit process for those corporates spending more than R40m per year on electricity.
