At IDS we have a favourite saying of you should try and save the energy you are already using rather than looking at alternative fuels and this you can do with inverters. This will have the knock on effect of taking the pressure off of generating more electricity.
Let IDS help you reduce the energy consumption of your electric motors. We will conduct our Energy Efficiency Motor Audit to see if you can reduce your electricity consumption without reducing your production or your air comfort or affect your processes. Call us now to book your survey and see if you can reduce your energy consumption without changing your operating/manufacturing times.
