In light of the continuing rise in energy costs and concerns about our carbon footprint, we held a recent review of our energy consumption within our premises and discovered that if we updated our lighting, we could significantly reduce our energy consumption by introducing new LED light bulbs.
Within the factory, we were able to introduce new lighting which, at current energy costs, could save us around 68%. This means that the installation costs would offer a payback of 2.5 years.
With such a positive start, we then reviewed our office lighting and were able to replace the lights with LED bulbs which could save us an estimated 54%, with a payback period of around 4.75 years.
These results are really encouraging and we will continue to look at other ways to improve our carbon footprint.
