Create your passive income from energy savings. Guaranteed.

Passive income from energy savings. Guaranteed.

Every crisis offers opportunities. If you are a factory owner, you are sitting on a potential goldmine with guaranteed ROI. Every Euro or Dollar you invest in compressed air energy savings will pay back in less than 12 months, and generate at least 10% of additional ROI per year. It only takes a few steps.

Hey company owner! Looking at your current stock portfolio and your Crypto wallet, you are probably less happy than a couple of years ago. The current situation in the world is less secure with soaring energy prices, material shortages, and lockdowns in some regions.

And what about shutdowns? During all those production stops due to supply shortages, your energy meter probably keeps on running due to internal leakages of compressed air, or other equipment that is kept “idling” all day long.

But here is the good news: Every crisis offers opportunities. If you are a factory owner, you are sitting on a potential goldmine with guaranteed ROI. Every Euro or Dollar you invest in compressed air energy savings will pay back in less than 12 months, and generate at least 10% of additional ROI per year. It only takes a few steps:

1. Quick scan

Do a quick scan to find out your savings potential. Use the form on our website which we designed for Compressed Air. You can use a similar approach for other utilities such as steam, electricity, and natural gas.

2. Perform an initial audit

Hire a consultant, or simply purchase an entry-level monitoring solution to track your energy consumption and find how your plant is doing. This audit will reveal leakages, poor system performance, excessive usage, and other savings opportunities.

3. Set saving goals

Set savings goals and take measures to achieve them. Typically this is the phase where you fix leaks, optimize the control system and invest in other measures such as shutoff valves.

With this stepwise approach, we can guarantee energy savings from 10 to 30%. Now let’s illustrate this with a simple investment example for a typical compressed air system which costs 100 K per year for electricity only:

  • Prescan: Do it yourself, it just takes an hour of your time
  • Initial audit: Rates vary from 1000 to 1500 USD, or you purchase/rent a flow meter to get an initial view of your consumption (500- 1500 USD). Or start with a monitoring solution right away (5 to 10 K including sensors)
  • Fixing and improving the system: Fixing some leaks might involve some spare gaskets or other parts, Cost may vary between a few USD for a leaking gasket, up to a few 1000, depending on the issues.

So for an initial investment of less than 10 K, you save 10 K per year. ROI < 12 months and after that 10 K per year of “passive income”. You might want to put that into your retirement fund or create a revolving budget for additional energy savings.
