Buckinghamshire Business has seen the light!

A business in High Wycombe will save 20% on energy use and over £3,000 a year after switching to an LED lighting system.

Low Carbon Workspaces helps businesses reduce the amount of energy that they use, ultimately reducing what they spend on energy and their impact on the environment.

One of the first grants approved went to a business in High Wycombe that will make great yearly savings with their new LED lighting system.

A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd, who provide cutting-edge professional equipment solutions to the entertainment and architectural sectors, with a specialised knowledge of LED lighting systems, carried out an audit on their premises. They discovered that they could save money and energy by replacing their warehouse lighting system with an LED version.

This meant incorporating new energy-efficient LED fixtures, as well as a localised control system with in-built sensors that would cut energy waste by turning the lighting on and off automatically depending on the need of a particular area of the warehouse.

Mark Tonks, IT & Logistics Director at A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd said: “Our lighting bills have regularly been over £6,000 a year, but our new system is expected to reduce this by at least £3,200 a year, a result that we are absolutely delighted with. We replaced our 400W fixtures that were operational from 6am to 8pm with 150W fixtures, some of which will now only come on where and when we need them. I estimate this will save us more than 20% a year on our overall energy use.”

The installation of the LED lighting at A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd was made possible partly thanks to a grant from Low Carbon Workspaces. Find out more about this funding scheme by calling 01494 569060 or emailing info@lowcarbonworkspaces.co.uk.
