All pools are different and we will estimate your individual savings at the time we make a detailed offer. Typically, the pool represents about 30% of the electricity consumption of the average household. We will substantially reduce this in almost every case. The exact amount depend on the pool and its equipment and we have seen energy savings from 40% to 80% of the pool consumption in correctly managed pools with 70% not being unusual. There are additional savings in chemicals, maintenance and labour as well.
On aggregate, if we achieve our sales targets, we expect the pools managed by Pooled Energy to save enough energy collectively to enable the retirement of a coal-fired thermal generator from the Grid within 10 years. If this occurs, it will be one of the best results in energy conservation in Australian history. It is also an indicator of the collective savings in cost.
Of course, there is a significant quality improvement in the pool water as well.
