MILFORD Care Centre has been given a free energy management system.
The care centre will now better be able to manage its energy outputs following the donation by Resourcekraft, which specialises in energy management and cost control solutions.
Based in O’Connell Avenue, Resourcekkraft has provided services to a number of Irish and international organisations including the Bank of Ireland, Ingersoll Rang, Irish Rail and Athlone Extrusions.
Its goal is to measure firms energy use and carbon emissions.
And as a result of their success, it was in a position to provide Milford Care Centre with a free energy management system.
The system that Resourcekraft has in place keeps the centre updated on its energy use on a real time basis.
It means bosses there can implement procedures to reduce energy costs at key moments.
Chief executive of Resourcekfraft Liam Relihan said: “Energy is the biggest uncontrolled cost in most organisations and it is essential that management get in the driving seat and control it. We are delighted to be working with Milford care centre. Saving money for such a great organisation like Milford is just what we want to be involved in.”
Pat Quinlan, chief executive of Milford Care Centre said they have already seen cost savings: “We can for the first time see clearly what energy we are using, where we are using it and the cost of it. This information has helped us to start making savings already.”
