Products that Support Sustainability
The foundation of our business is a commitment to developing products that prevent unnecessary energy waste and tools to support on going commissioning of energy conservation measures. Since 1996, for every transformer that Powersmiths has provided, the equivalent associated CO2 mitigated is that compared to taking 100 cars worth of emissions off of the road.
Powersmiths commitment to providing insight into a building’s power quality and consumption has also evolved with our commitment to support customers sustainability initiatives. Knowing the importance of metering, monitoring, reporting and educating building occupants of all building resource consumption (water, gas, renewable energies, steam etc.) and the impact one can have on preventing waste, fuelled the development of Powersmiths WOW™.
