The St John of God (SJOG) Retreat Centre at Safety Bay, in Western Australia, is a complex site that showcases the strong energy efficiency results that can be gained through technological change and community engagement.
An energy audit was conducted by NEEN and Energetics at the site in January 2014, as the Site Manager was keen to find insightful energy efficiency options to improve the Centre’s financial situation and to support the moral imperative of treading lightly upon the earth. This audit identified a number of opportunities to dramatically cut energy consumption.
Opportunities at a glance:
- Projected Savings (All Opportunities): $18,000 per annum
- Estimated Investment (All opportunities): $41,000
- Projected savings (Top 5 Opportunities): $6,975 per annum
- Estimated Investment (Top 5 opportunities): $26,000
St John of God Retreat Centre is working towards implementing these opportunities as they continue on their energy efficiency journey.Case Study: St John of God Retreat Centre
