Don’t waste your energy more efficiently.
Enviro-Stewards’ approach is unlike that of most consultants. Instead of performing a traditional audit with a specific focus on solving your end state dilemma, we examine the root cause in order to develop innovative and sustainable solutions.
Rather than focusing on ways to waste your energy more efficiently, by recommending new ways to generate energy, we will develop solutions to eliminate wasted energy in the first place.
Enviro-Stewards takes a holistic approach and conducts a full-spectrum assessment and implement solutions focused on prevention, resource conservation, and improving your bottom line.
We develop and implement solutions to achieve substantial energy reductions with an average payback of less than 1 year.
Energy Efficiency Success story
Southbrook Winery completed a conventional energy conservation study of their LEED gold-certified facility, supported by Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro. Their results of that study suggested that Southbrook might be able to achieve an additional 5% savings with a 20-year payback.
Not satisfied with that assessment, Southbrook Winery reached out to to Enviro-Stewards for a second opinion. Enviro-Stewards’ subsequent audit discovered that Southbrook could reduce both electricity and natural gas consumption by 40% with a combined payback of four months.
By conserving this energy, Southbrook’s subsequent net zero solar system required ⅓ fewer solar panels to provide Southbrook’s remaining energy needs. This avoided covering vineyard land with solar panels which saved approximately 50 cases of wine per year valued at $20,000.
NOTLH assisted in the successful implementation of the proposed plan, which also helped to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55 tonnes per year. The project also won a National Sustainability Award.
“What Southbrook proved is that addressing conservation first had a substantial economic advantage over proceeding directly to installing renewables,” says Enviro-Stewards founder, Bruce Taylor. “It’s normally hard to show not doing something. In this case, you can literally come to Southbrook and drink the wine that was preserved by conserving energy.”
Enviro-Stewards is dedicated to the development of innovative solutions to achieve long-term resource and financial sustainability for businesses.
