WAPA bills from TWO MORE INSTALLATIONS are substantiating the claims of energy savings. This past summer, Sedna Aire VI sold two 5-ton central split SOLAR-ASSISTED AIR CONDITIONING systems to two different customers on St. John. One was a private homeowner who was tired of paying over $2,000 per month for electricity. The other installation was at Sam and Jack’s Deli, where indoor afternoon temperatures were as high as 95 degrees.
Those were the hottest months of the hottest year on record, so everybody was concerned about cooling costs, which can easily account for half of an average monthly WAPA bill. As a solar provider, SOLAR JEFF company policy is to FIRST reduce consumption. That’s why we feel this technology is so important. “It’s always a matter of money,” says Jeff. “Savings methods that return the investment in two years are twice as worthwhile as those that pay-back in four years”.
Now, after months of WAPA bills have been studied and the performance of the systems have been monitored, the savings are evident. The homeowner was astounded to see that his charges were reduced by more than the expected 58%. Additionally, he reports, the equipment runs quieter, cycles less frequently and performs better than the system it replaced. Anyone who wants to check the results at Sam and Jack’s Deli (on the second-floor of the Marketplace, Cruz Bay) should stop in and order a delicious lunch or take-out dinner, and sit inside in truly air-conditioned comfort.
