KFC South Africa saves 24% on energy costs

BEST’s South African partner, EnergyRite, has been working with Moral Foods, a local franchisee of KFC. In a short space of time, they have generated impressive savings for two pilot stores. Moral Food’s owner, Mr. Rughubeer, contacted EnergyRite after hearing about the savings the company had achieved for another local business.

EnergyRite performed a full site audit and set about installing BEST’s state-of-the-art, real-time energy monitoring solution, Eniscope. The data collected allowed the team to perform a detailed analysis of the energy consumption within those stores, allowing for no-cost or low-cost savings to be identified and presented to Mr. Rughubeer.

At an equipment level, on-site chillers were fitted with timers and thermostats, eliminating the wasteful legacy system that relied on pressure pads. LED lighting was fitted throughout each store, front and back, including signage.

Of the working relationship with this BEST partner, Mr. Rughubeer says, “We are delighted with the results EnergyRite have been able to achieve, they have exceeded our expectations.”
