What this system does do is rob customers of (granted, minute amounts of) fuel energy, so the overall cost of this system considering everybody involved is greater than before. Granted, the shop saves money after 2 years, which is sneaky, but not nearly as sneaky as touting this as a green improvement.

Oh I completely agree with this. Totally cheeky lol.

Nice to meetcha Adam, welcome to The cellar
