    We have many unique offerings, our smart metering solution not only provides digital, web based monitoring but offers control of devices based on time, temperature, weather or load. Our metering systems can work with any meter, electrical, water, hot water or gas. We also have worked on several sub billing systems that are running successfully. We offer clients a range of Energy Conservation Methods specialising in our own range of LED lights which have a 5 year full exchange warranty. We often end up installing LED lighting projects, where the LEDs pay for themselves through the savings. Finally we offer clients the option to purchase a photovoltaic solar system or rather that we install, insure and maintain the system and the client buys the electricity it produces at a cheaper rate.
