What Classifies a Building as Energy Efficient?

There are various things that can be done to enhance the energy efficiency of a building. Known as retrofitting, this process involveschanging and in many cases upgrading various elements of the building. Various electrical components of a building consume varying amounts of electricity.

  • Lighting (10%)
  • Air Conditioning (60%)
  • Geysers, Computers, small power (30%)

Retrofitting allows us to replace current solutions with energy efficient alternatives, in turn reducing overall electrical consumption.
