There will of course be a difference in the amount of electricity used to chill the cellar dependant on the outside temperature. The duty cycle of a chiller will be far higher during the summer or warm period. Therefore, when trialling the system with both Whitbread's and Marstons the outside temperature was split into three different “seasons”. The actual savings for all three periods were between 23% and 54% averaging out at 35%. Full Evidential back up figures and reports are available on request
Savings recorded 2016 @ 10p per Kw. Adjusted figures below for 2019 ave @ 14p per Kw. The cost of electricity will of course continue to increase year on year
