In assisting Sri Lanka to save energy resulting in lowering expenses in electricity, Enerzee, a new and ingenious technology, promises reduction to organisations energy consumption by up to 20% while having no risk of capital installation costs.

It provides maximum energy and operation savings in areas such as water heating and air-conditioning, the two largest energy consumers in a building.

The launch will accompany a presentation on ‘energy savings’ by Ihandal Energy Solutions Director Aaron Patel who will provide excellent insights to organisational decision makers on how they could optimise their energy without a heavy outlay in capital investment.

Clients enjoy a 100% income tax rebate for the entire capital cost.From small residential developments to 1,000 room living quarters already using Ihandal’s Solutions, its Director Aaron Patel said: “It’s such a delightful opportunity for us to be working together with Zee Lanka.

We are confident that this will provide a compelling new experience for businesses to save energy.”
