LED lighting

LED lighting saves over 100 tonnes of CO2 eqivalent.

Electricity North West had a range of lighting systems that varied in age and efficiency across our non-operational sites. This presented a great opportunity for us to install LED lighting across our offices and depots to reduce energy consumption and costs. Lighting on our properties typically accounts for 20-50% of the overall energy usage at each site.

We therefore chose to install LED lighting at all of these sites.

LED lights use much less energy than standard halogen light bulbs and benefit from a life span of up to 80,000 hours which reduces maintenance costs and from a safety perspective will reduce the amount of time engineers need to work at height.

Investment costs will be reduced by economies of scale. It's anticipated that the investment of £360,000 will be paid back within three years and will save 107 tonnes of CO2 equivalent every year.
