We have long pioneered the benefits of LED’s in signage; however our embracing of these bright little wonders does not stop at our manufactured products.
In addition to the rolling programme of replacing existing fluorescents with our own in-house built LED units we have carried out a replacement programme of all our external lighting. This involved removing all Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium floodlights and replacing with bright LED floodlights.
This will have a number of benefits including extending the lifespan of the units and reducing energy consumption by over 18,000 kwh per year. This will have a significant impact on our bills, by saving us over £1500 per year! In addition, our Carbon Footprint is reduced by nearly 10 tonnes per year.
Furthermore, the £1850 (+vat) cost of the floodlights will be recouped after just over a year of operation.
Just one more step on our continuing journey of environmental improvements.
