Elion Technologies Ensures Safe and Efficient Shopping Experience at Hooghly Retail Store


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its commitment to creating safe and efficient retail environments through a recent project at a leading retail store in Hooghly, West Bengal. This case study highlights the effectiveness of combining Electrical Safety Audits (ESA) and Thermography Audits to identify potential hazards, optimize energy consumption, and ultimately enhance the shopping experience for customers and staff.

Project Overview:

Our client, a renowned retail chain, prioritized maintaining a safe and comfortable shopping environment while minimizing operational costs. They engaged Elion Technologies to conduct a comprehensive assessment of their electrical infrastructure, utilizing both ESAs and Thermography Audits.

Electrical Audit Services


Electrical Safety Audit:

  • Our experienced electrical engineers meticulously inspected the entire store, including:
    • Electrical panels and switchboards.
    • Lighting systems and wiring.
    • Grounding and earthing systems.
    • Emergency lighting and safety equipment.
  • We evaluated compliance with national and international electrical safety standards.
  • Potential fire hazards, faulty connections, and outdated equipment were identified for corrective action.

Thermography Audit:

  • Trained thermographers utilized advanced thermal imaging cameras to capture temperature variations across electrical components.
  • These infrared images revealed hidden issues like:
    • Overheating components indicating potential wear and tear or overload.
    • Imbalanced loads leading to inefficiencies and reduced lifespan of equipment.
    • Faulty connections and loose contacts posing safety hazards.

Combining Insights:

By analyzing the data from both audits, we were able to paint a comprehensive picture of the electrical health, safety, and efficiency of the Hooghly retail store. This allowed us to identify immediate concerns and potential areas for improvement, ultimately benefitting both customer experience and operational costs.

Findings and Recommendations:

The combined assessment revealed several issues, including:

  • Outdated wiring and overloaded circuits in certain areas exceeding safe capacity.
  • Faulty fluorescent lighting fixtures contributing to inefficient energy consumption.
  • Inadequate earthing in a storage room, posing safety risks and equipment protection concerns.
  • Overheating connections on a refrigeration unit indicating potential wear and tear requiring immediate attention.

Based on these findings, we provided a detailed report with prioritized recommendations, including:

  • Upgrading outdated wiring and circuit breakers to address overloading issues and improve safety.
  • Replacing inefficient fluorescent lighting with energy-efficient LED fixtures for significant energy savings.
  • Improving earthing systems in identified locations to ensure optimal safety and equipment protection.
  • Scheduling immediate maintenance for the overheating refrigeration unit connection to prevent potential breakdowns.


By implementing our recommendations, the Hooghly retail store achieved remarkable improvements:

  • Enhanced electrical safety: Upgraded systems and addressed hazards significantly reduced the risk of electrical accidents for customers and staff.
  • Improved energy efficiency: LED lighting and optimized systems led to substantial reductions in electricity bills.
  • Reduced maintenance costs: Proactive identification and mitigation of potential issues minimized the need for expensive repairs and downtime.
  • Enhanced customer experience: A safer and more comfortable environment with improved lighting contributed to a more positive shopping experience.


This case study exemplifies the power of Elion Technologies’ comprehensive approach to retail electrical safety and efficiency. By combining meticulous data analysis with advanced technologies like thermography, we helped this Hooghly store improve electrical safety, minimize costs, and ultimately create a safer and more pleasant shopping experience for customers and staff.
