Essential Consumption Audits
Induction Group also performs Power and Lighting Audits. Many thousands of dollars can be saved by interrogating the current lighting system to achieve the utmost performance by either installing newer globes or by updating your system.
Power and lighting audits are designed to help you identify the most cost-effective and practical options to reduce energy consumption and costs. Properly performed, these audits analyse usage, expenses, look for wastage, and identify options to improve both appearance and expenditure.
An audit conducted on a car park is disclosed below and you can clearly see the savings over a period of 13 years. Induction Group warrants its products via the manufacturer’s warranty for a period of 12 years and provides an additional year of warranty based on the project.
Power & Lighting Sample Audit
This project had a ROI of less than 24 months. Reducing out-goings is a smart way to improve cash flow simply by cutting costs to improve a companies over all financial position.

|Combined ROI (years)||2|
|Reduction in Carbon Emissions (CO2/t) p.a.||21|
|Operational Cost Saving Over LED Life||265,081|
|(inc. maintenance & Bulb Replacement Cost, Exc. LED Investment & Installation)|
Calculated results clearly indicate that an initial investment would result in sizable savings along with recovering the initial costs.
Often is the case that investing back into existing operations is overlooked negating the positive returns through on going savings and a significant reduction of monthly out goings.
Facts & Figures
|Current Lighting System: BULB||Hrs/Day||Days/Year||Qty||M’n Cost#||Operation Cost Over LED Life|
|2 X 36w Twin Fluro||12||312||146||50||$380,897|
Interior lighting accounts for a large amount of many companies on-going monthly costs. On average, with an accurate audit, up to 50% savings can be made on your lighting related power costs plus maintenance and replacement costs.
|New Lighting System: BULB||Hrs/Day||Days/Year||Qty||Operation Cost Over LED Life|
|48w Flat Panel LED||12||312||146||$115,817|
While unavoidable, lighting maintenance and electricity consumption can be better managed through modern technology such as LED lighting systems. Companies are now moving away from expensive and bulky HPS and Metal Halide lighting in favour of new and efficient LED lighting systems.
Reduce On-Going Maintenance Costs
|Life Time Saving**||Rated Life (Years)||ROI (Years)|
Many companies tend to think in the short term thus not taking full advantage of the savings that are available over a longer period of time.
A typical light bulb may need to be changed anually while a modern LED type light source might last in excess of 10 years.
Besides the electricity savings, there is the labour savings and bulb costs that add up over time.
