Energy Efficiency

Conducting residential and commercial energy assessments to reduce costs, reduce carbon emissions and increase comfort.

Commercial Energy Assessments and Retrofitting

A commercial energy assessment can be hugely beneficial to your business. A straightforward, cost effective and easy way to reduce overheads and help the planet!

An energy assessment quantifies where electricity is being used within the business, the costs associated with it and what the most effective ways to save money are.

Recommendations range from behavioural change options (such as turning lights off) to larger, equipment upgrades (such as upgrading a cool room). These recommendations are ranked by their return on investment so as a business owner you can make an informed decision on the best way make improvements within the building or changes to energy habits.

As part of the NSW OEH Energy Efficiency for Small Business Program, Cool Planet has conducted energy assessments for over 1,700 businesses in NSW, making Cool Planet the largest provider of regional commercial energy assessments in Australia. We can help business no matter their size, industry or location and can provide level 1, 2 and 3 level energy audits where required.

To complement our energy assessments, Cool Planet has a number of retrofitting partners that include installers of solar systems, air conditioning systems, commercial refrigeration, insulation and draught proofing, window coverings, lights, solar HWS and more. We have the ability to quickly and cost effectively install and service any energy efficient retrofitting technology. We can also install wireless monitors to help track and record energy efficiency improvements. This data monitoring can help provide tangible information on the implementation of energy efficiency recommendations.
