WHYTES CITRUS | Consulting Case Study



A word from Nick Whyte, Whyte Citrus CEO


THE SITUATION

Whytes Citrus experienced constrained margins due to high monthly electricity costs.


COMPLICATIONS

The impending Eskom tariff increases, and more approved for the next 3 years.


SOLUTIONS

1. A changed tariff structure, to purchase electricity at cheaper rates seasonally.


2. Consolidated electrical supply points:

  • Buy cheaper electricity in bulk.

  • Form consolidated generation centre, reduced Capex and Opex .

  • Consolidated demand profile for reduced maximum demand costs.

  • Eliminated admin and service fees by closing unnecessary accounts.

3. Installed solar PV system to supplement the electricity supply at a favourable ROI.

NEXT STEPS:

Active energy management! Shifting anytime loading - such as pumping - outside of peak, expensive electricity hours.


RESULTS!

Tariff savings, demand savings, solar savings, load shifting savings, and a better understanding of how to manage energy effectively!
