Switching to LED lighting can help your business save up to 80% on energy bills as well as increasing work productivity, health, happiness and overall morale of office employees.
Reducing lighting electricity consumption is possible for most businesses. It’s done on a cost neutral basis for the installation by utilising the energy savings to fund the installation,
Our No-obligation Energy Survey will provide you with a fully costed model and design specification.
The majority of UK businesses current lighting systems are still reliant on inefficient traditional light sources, this results in wasted energy costs, and a high carbon footprint. There is a significant potential for many businesses to move to low energy lighting, and control systems. This will not only increase profitability, but also contribute significantly to your sustainability planning and accreditations.
Lighting uses some 20% of the electricity generated in the UK.
Upgrading from traditional lighting systems to LED, is one of the fastest and easiest routes for companies to significantly cut costs. You will also improve working environments, and reduce your carbon footprint.
Daylight sensors can provide additional savings of 30-50%
Sensors automatically reduce the artificial light source, when natural daylight is present, resulting in the best return. The photocells have a wide range of functionality, to not only enable lux levels to be maintained, but also use the minimum amount of energy.
One of your most effective routes to cutting costs quickly is to switch to high performance, low energy, low maintenance, LED lighting.
We can also help you avoid the need for up front capex, so we can help incorporate installation payments. This means you get a simple lease-purchase payment plan, usually with very short payback periods, and with costs offset by energy savings.
We will provide a comprehensive report on your return on investment, and highly competitive finance packages. This will help you significantly reduce your operational costs, and also enjoy an enhanced lighting environment.

How do daylight harvesting light sensors help save money?
Daylight is the only freely available light source, and yet all too often it is overlooked. Artificial lighting is still needed of course, so ensuring it is linked to the daylight availability will mean it is most efficient. It’s important to allow the user to automatically reduce the artificial light source, when natural daylight is present, resulting in the best return. These kind of controls are suitable for use both in internal, and also external applications. As the level of ambient light in a room increases, the result is the light level controls can be used to either dim, or turn off the lights.
These photocells have a wide range of functionality, to not only enable lux levels to be maintained, but also use the minimum amount of energy. These photocells are ideally suited to applications where maximum efficiency and flexibility are required, and can yield additional power savings of up to 30% when fully utilised.
What is 'Glare' and why is it a problem?
Glare is typically caused by ‘excessive and uncontrolled brightness’, whether that is from sunlight, or artificial lighting. Discomfort from glare can be due to the source itself. This may be from being in the direct line of vision, or from the source reflecting from buildings, windows or computer screens. All of these forms of glare can be distracting for employees, and can make it difficult for them to easily see and complete the task in hand. A well designed lighting system will not only minimise glare but also ensure visual comfort. European Standard EN 12464-1 regulates the lighting of indoor workplaces, so should be taken into account at design stage to avoid having to retrofit glare reduction after installation.
Is it possible to retrofit Luminares?
Whilst retrofitting luminaires is an option, and upgrades individual fittings as they fail, it is also a less effective solution than full luminaire replacement. Existing legacy luminaires and control gear are not necessarily suited to an LED light source, therefore the performance of the unit as a whole cannot be verified. As a result, we would always recommend that the entire luminaire is replaced. This will ensure that the new fitting uses the correct wiring and control gear for the lamp technology, and also that the correct amount of lighting is provided for the space.
How do Motion Sensors help optimise light and energy usage?
Motion sensors activate the lighting automatically, when they detect a presence. When a room is empty, the lighting is switched off affording the highest form of energy saving. PIR sensors are the most common type used in office spaces, because they offer a good compromise between value and sensitivity. Microwave is a more common application in a commercial/industrial setting, and they can incorporate higher degrees of control, for individual requirements. The location of a motion sensor is important; it must be able to ‘see’ the activity that requires the light, but not beyond that area.
