Upgrading your lighting system can be one of the most cost-effective ways for your business to save energy.
For some businesses, lighting can account for up to 50 per cent of energy use. By upgrading to an energy-efficient lighting system and implementing smart lighting practices, you could potentially reduce your lighting energy usage 80 per cent.
Switching to a more efficient lighting system can:
- Reduce your electricity bill
- Reduce the need for costly maintenance
- Improve safety and conditions at your premises.
See our fact sheet for a simple summary of the technology:
