New information to help businesses reduce their electricity bills. SolarCool (Mauritius) Ltd. offers a technology that reduces reliance on the Central Electricity Board (CEB) by at least 75%.
One of the most significant items of expenditure in large companies remains electricity. It’s an expense that never goes down, quite the contrary,” explains Ram Ramjheetun, Managing Director of SolarCool (Mauritius) Ltd.
How to do it? The secret lies in the installation of a system connected to the compressor that powers the air conditioning and refrigeration network. In cold countries, this can also be used to power the heating system.
The system captures the sun’s rays, even if the weather is cloudy,” Ram Ramjheetun says. It is therefore not necessary for the sun’s rays to hit the system directly. “The main component looks like a solar panel, but it’s not one. It is a thermodynamic copper panel that requires no special maintenance. We offer a ten-year guarantee,” adds the director. The lifespan is 25 years.
The return on investment is fast, Ram Ramjheetun believes. “The money saved on an electricity bill will allow the company to pay for the equipment. It can also go through the French Development Agency to obtain financing. This body has a program dedicated to these types of initiatives. We will help the company get this financing,” says the Managing Director of SolarCool (Mauritius) Ltd.
Several large local companies are interested in this new technology adopted by large multinationals, such as Mercedes Benz, Texaco or Pizza Hut, among others.
