ELe®’s innovative, award winning DC power infrastructure can now transform business operations and deliver unprecedented savings in energy bills and carbon emissions.
ELe® DC infrastructures is designed to eliminate AC/DC energy wastage and create more efficient, streamlined energy management systems.
For partially or fully off-grid sites, Regenergy can supply ELe® renewable energy systems to connect to its infrastructures for maximum energy and carbon savings.
The designs and supply of ultra-low energy DC power infrastructures. We can also provide installation support where required.
Regenergy can also supply a growing range of ELe® DC devices including computing equipment, lighting, air-conditioning and refrigeration.
In the conversion from AC to DC, energy is wasted as heat. The more devices you add to a Power Bar, the more efficient the overall system will become.
A method of distributing both power and data using a single ethernet cable. Our point-to-point infrastructure allows certainty and quality of distribution.
Since the early days of electricity, the globally standardised method of transmission has been AC (Alternating Current). Many of the electronic products e.g. computers, lighting, fridges and mobile devices we use every day, require DC (Direct Current).
The process to convert AC power to DC power to run these products wastes significant amounts energy and need bulky, inefficient transformers whilst costing you money every time you plug in your device
PoE – Ad-hoc systems which pass electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet Cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices with batteries & USB
Removes unnecessary power cabling and sockets. Power is simply overlaid onto your existing Cat5E data network
Offers complete flexibility to configure workspaces to meet changing requirements
With no moving parts, minimizes system failures, ambient noise and heat generation
For optimised energy and carbon savings, ELe® infrastructures can utilise renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. ICT suites and other electrical devices fully powered with ELe®’s off-grid solutions can maximise energy cost savings and run completely carbon free. This clean energy solution is ideal for schools with strong sustainability goals or equally for schools with unstable or non-existent power supplies.
With the addition of an ELe® Energy POD and control box you will be able to harness and store energy with the POD’s high performance lithium-ion battery and gain additional energy savings by leveraging beneficial off-peak energy tariffs. The ELe® Energy POD can also be used to replace inefficient UPS systems and back-up generators, and is easily scalable as additional units are required.
The Control Box provides access to real-time data. The unique monitoring solution aids optimisation and enhances saving opportunities.
A grid-connected solution that uses ELe®’s Power Bar and Injectors to power a suite of high performance, low energy NUC Intel® PCs and Monitors powered via your school’s existing Ethernet cabling.
Energy Independence is the ultimate goal for any home owner. Maximising storage is the next step to reach this goal, although the reality is that you will need to replace your battery every 5 -7 years.
Safer, more efficient, longer life-cycle energy storage giving you up to 45 years battery life.
Adjust the number of photovoltaic solar panels to generate the necessary electricity to take your home off-grid
Manage energy storage and consumption in your home
An Off-Grid Power System is when you are not reliant on the main electricity grid provided by your local utility supplier. Excessive power generated from the solar panels, are stored in the batteries to ensure power availability when the applications usage exceeds what the solar panels are producing. The battery system is sized to achieve approximately 3 days independence. It is important to package a hybrid-inverter with this solution as it is programmed to disregard dedicated supply and only accept supply in the event there is low battery or the load is exceeding what the inverter was programmed for.
If you are satisfied that you have implemented energy saving strategies and you still want to try to save more monthly, then we can begin to include Energy Generation assets and some storage capacity to maximise your energy production and self-reliant consumption.
The first step is to understand what you need to generate your own energy:
Photovoltaic solar panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity.
This is an essential device in any solar power system. Its basic function is to change the variable Direct Current output of the solar panels into Alternative Current used in your home.
The second step is to understand the available solar power systems:
Do you know how electricity is being used in your home?
Space heating and cooling
Fridges & Freezers
Consumer Electronics on Standby
Replacing your electric geyser with Solar Water heating can reduce your hot water consumption by a huge 50-90% with an overall savings of up to 46% on our monthly electricity account.
Replacing your existing lights with LED lights that uses a tenth of the energy of traditional light fittings and save you up to 30% on your home’s electricity.
Replacing your home appliances with A++ (or better) energy efficient rated appliances will minimise your overall energy use by a further 5 – 30%.
We use extremely accurate data loggers and plug them on to your DB board for approximately 7-10 days to give us an exact measurement of your daily usage for each appliance in your home. Armed with this information, we can show you where your highest consumption takes place and provide an actual Rand Savings value based on energy efficient technology.
