Energy Efficient Lighting

Despite being one of the easiest and most effective efficiency measures to implement, many buildings still use inappropriate or outdated lighting systems.

There are significant cost and energy savings to be made through the installation of modern, energy efficient lighting systems. Although the install costs may be higher, the payback time on lighting systems incorporating LEDs can be as little as 18 months, allowing your organisation to see significant returns on investment over their 20 year lifespan. That’s not to mention the productivity benefits – a recent study from the World Green Business Council suggests that better lighting accounts for a 23% increase in productivity.

Our tried and tested lighting solutions are designed to improve your building’s energy efficiency and working environment whilst cutting unnecessary costs.

We offer a holistic approach which goes much further than simply changing a lightbulb. Through conducting detailed site surveys and analysis, we identify where your organisation’s lighting can be improved. We then put together a comprehensive business case, outlining in depth the costs and benefits to your business and the range of options available to you.

This allows us to design and install the most appropriate system for your needs and budget. Whether it’s re-designing your fittings, re-thinking your lighting layout or overhauling your entire lighting system (including implementing controls and sensors) to ensure that the new system works for you. This way, you are provided with an efficient and cost effective lighting system that will perform at it’s best for years to come.

Estimating your savings

Your exact savings will be dependent on your current and proposed lighting systems including lamp specifications, operating hours and electricity cost. However, for a rough guide of how our LED lighting systems perform compared to some traditional lighting systems, please see the table to the right.

A guide to residential communal lighting

With an average of 30% of electricity spend in residential blocks attributed to communal lighting, if you haven’t installed LEDs with controls you’re missing out on energy, cost and maintenance savings as well as improved internal environments for your residents.
