3 Less electricity usage = lower energy costs = higher profits = smarter business Irrespective of whether your business is small, medium, large or very large, you the South African businessperson are the backbone that supports South Africa s place and participation in the global economy. Men and women driven by a spirit of entrepreneurship are more often than not the people who start small things from nothing, from a simple idea, develop it into something proud and productive, and change the lives of employees who found work as the result of a small start-up turning into a big player. The fruits of this urge to get-up-and-do-it-yourself a determination to never give up are seen in both rural and urban areas across South Africa in the form of: Busy retail outlets Popular lodges, hotels, guest houses and B&Bs State-of-the-art commercial and industrial parks Factories of all sizes that work tirelessly to produce top quality products Farms big and small that supply the fresh milk, eggs and vegetables we enjoy every day. Eskom, in its total commitment to save energy, has established aggressive goals to support its customers in all sectors of the South African economy in their drive towards optimised energy consumption and making the switch to modern, energy-efficient technology solutions. Eskom is especially proud to have designed and developed a funding programme that enables businesses of all sizes to reduce electricity consumption by switching to energy-efficient technologies, cut energy costs, increase profitability, generate growth and most importantly, create much needed employment. It s called the

4 Standard Product Programme The programme offers you funding for the implementation of small and medium-sized industrial and commercial projects that enable you to switch from the most commonly used energy-intensive technologies to energy-efficient alternatives off-the-shelf components such as: Energy-efficient lighting The SPP energy-efficient lighting options include a wide range of lighting such as LED lamps, T5 Fluorescents, Induction lamps and CFLs. LEDs are the most energy-efficient lighting option for the office or factory in terms of watt versus lumens (the amount of light produced for the energy consumed), and are about 80% more energy-efficient than conventional Quartz Halogen lamps. Aside from being an extremely efficient energy saver, LEDs have excellent colour quality and the chosen shade of white light remains clear and constant over time. LEDs light output is expected to decrease to about 70% of its initial value at its rated lifespan of approximately 20 years. CFLs are light-weight, compact, last up to four times longer than standard bulbs and can save as much as 80% of the electricity used by standard bulbs, small CFLs can also be used as replacement lamps for Quartz Halogen lamps. Energy and water saving shower heads With a flow rate of less than 10 litres per minute compared with the 15 to 20 litres per minute of conventional shower heads, energy and water saving shower heads use less water shower-for-shower and, as a result, contribute to electrical element geysers consuming less electricity to reheat water. 6 7

5 Heat pumps Heat pumps use the reverse cycle of a refrigeration plant to heat water. In effect, it transfers heat from a source such as water or air to the water that needs to be heated. As in other refrigeration equipment, heat pumps employ an evaporator, compressor, condenser, refrigerant gas, and an expansion valve within a closed circuit. Latent heat is given off when the refrigerant gas is liquefied through the condenser and transferred to the surrounding water, together with further sensible heat loss, effectively raising the temperature of water to a higher temperature. Most importantly, heat pumps produce on average three units of thermal energy for every unit of electrical energy, whereas electrical element geysers produce only one unit of thermal energy for every unit of electrical energy. As a result, heat pumps can use up to 67% less electricity than electrical element geysers and dramatically reduce energy costs to heat water. Key features: The Standard Product Programme was developed and designed to speed up project approval and funding processes Project approval could be as quick as two weeks after submission of a detailed proposal Funding capped at R1,875 million per project Electricity savings to be achieved between 1kW and 250kW Annual electricity savings to be achieved greater than 2MWh. 8 9

6 Key steps: 1. Firstly, contact your regional Eskom Energy Advisor to conduct an on-site energy audit and identify energy-saving opportunities for your business 2. They will provide you with replacement technology lists, expected electricity savings and the potential amount of Eskom funding 3. Submit your project proposal to Eskom for approval 4. Old installation is audited by Eskom 5. Next, replacement technologies are fitted and installed either by yourself, a Project Developer or a supplier on your behalf 6. It is important that the old technologies and systems are safely disposed of (proof thereof should be submitted to Eskom) 7. The new installation is audited by Eskom 8. And the last step, funding is paid to you by Eskom upon full switch on of the new technologies, and submission of all required documentation. Note: It is required that you commit to a sustainability period of three years. Case Study Standard Product Programme: Energy-efficient textiles turn heads Prilla Mills, an independent spinning mill in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal Province realised: Eskom funding of R364,275 which covered 65,3% of the project s total cost Demand reduction of 96kW Energy savings of 755,865kWh per annum Estimated cost savings of R378,320 per annum. Total project cost: R557,

7 Energy-saving technologies Heat Pump Solar Geyser Energy and water saving shower heads Other Eskom energy efficiency funding programmes include: CFL LED ESCo Funding Process offers funding for the implementation of large projects, with potential electricity savings of 1MW or more, that enable the switch to energy-efficient technologies and processes. The programme is aimed specifically at Eskom Energy Services Companies (ESCos) who specialise in specific target markets, identify energy efficiency opportunities for achieving reductions in electricity consumption, and scope and execute projects. ESCos utilise their knowledge of demand management technologies to determine the best and most suitable way of obtaining electricity savings at a business, as basis for establishing a four-way partnership via legal contracts between Eskom, the customer, the ESCo, and an independent, Measurement and Verification expert. Due to the legal complexities, the process is characterised by long lead times. Standard Offer Programme offers funding for the implementation of large projects, with potential electricity savings from 50kW to 5MW, that enable the switch to energy-efficient technologies and processes, such as, building management systems, hot water systems, industrial and commercial solar water heating systems, process optimisation systems and energy-efficient lighting technologies. Key features: Electricity savings to be achieved from 50kW to 5MW Programme focus is on electricity usage during the 16 daytime hours between 6am and 10pm weekdays Contract duration three years Total contract amount capped at R250 million If successful, funding will be via fixed amounts per kwh over a period of three years Project approval could be achieved within six months. Performance Contracting aims to purchase verified bulk energy savings across multiple sites and technologies by contracting with a single Project Developer. The programme is designed and developed for energy users who operate high load factors or Project Developers who specialise in managing large switch-to energy efficiency programmes that would exceed 30GWh of savings sustainable over a three-year period. Performance contracting is done at Eskom s request for proposals, therefore, it is not always available
