Refrigeration and Lighting Retrofit

This year WSI made further energy savings with two large retrofit projects. One being a large scale internal and external lighting efficiency upgrade, whilst the other being a large- scale refrigeration efficiency upgrade in one of its hospitality sections. Western Sydney Institute of TAFE continues along a path to improve its environmental performance in leaps and bounds.

Top 3 learnings:

  • Saving energy saves money
  • Energy efficiency is an excellent long term strategy, and the broader environmental and economic benefits besides ‘payback time’ are also very important considerations.
  • It is worthwhile getting advice from independent specialists, especially when considering complex upgrades.
