Client:
Katie King
Description:
Katie owns and manages the Esola jewellery in Cottesloe WA. Constantly changing her halogen globes as they failed and disappointed with the electricity bills and the heat generated by the globes. She was pleasantly surprised to find the guys from Eureka in her shop in early 2013. They pointed out savings that would be generated as a result of a switch to their 5W MR16 replacement globes and installed a warm white and a natural white globe for Katie to compare with her existing. She was impressed with the light strength and the temperature at which the globes operated (70 degrees). She wasn’t sure which colour she wanted so Eureka left the globes in place and said that they would come back in a few days to see what Katie wanted to do. In the meantime Eureka provided her with an obligation free quotation. The decision was made after some deliberation and Katie fitted out the whole shop on flexible payment terms, negotiated on the spot

  • Hours of use 11hrs/day
  • Rate of charge 0.28 kwh
  • Cost of existing elec PA= 2.2kw x 11hrs x 7days x 52wks x 0.28 = $2,466.47 PA
  • Cost of maintenance circa 15% E/bill = $369.97
  • Total running cost = $2,836.44 PA
  • Total cost of electricity Eureka LED = $253.37 PA
  • Total saving = $2,583.07 PA
