In Australia, most electricity is generated by burning coal. At a time of climate crisis this is obviously far from ideal and many people naturally seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. This is of particular importance to swimming pool owners as a pool typically makes up around one-third of a household’s electricity use. The good news is that Pooled Energy’s smart technology typically reduces a pool’s energy consumption by up to 60%, chemicals by over 50% and less polluting transport to deliver them. In addition our pools co-operate at times of peak load and instability in the Grid to reduce the load and stress. Pooled Energy truly offers you an Eco-friendly pool.Read More
