Participants in the ‘see and save’ pilot scheme install a newly developed monitor on their premises to measure energy use with the aim of cutting costs.
Resort manager Wayne Carroll said the trial would determine how energy efficiency could benefit its business and customers.
‘If we can find ways of monitoring and then reducing our energy usage without compromising service to customers, it’s a win-win benefit,’ he said.
The trial, run by energy monitor providers SmartNow, energy management-education specialists Kinesis and Synergy, is for small to medium business members of the Australian Hotels Association WA.
Synergy general manager energy markets Geoff Roberts said customers wanted to be able to track energy use and modify consumption where possible.
‘Under the program, businesses can identify appliances that may be inefficient or better cater for areas of the business that need more energy than others,’ he said.
Synergy will use trial findings to refine the monitor and energy education program.
