Lighting systems can be responsible for up to 50 per cent of your business’s energy use. Implementing smart lighting practices and upgrading to an energy efficient lighting system can reduce your energy usage by 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.

The Calculight tool can help you identify appropriate upgrade options and compare them by cost, energy savings and payback period.

Once you have identified the most cost-effective solution for your business, you can use the generic technical specifications to confidently approach lighting suppliers and contractors.

Please note: This tool was developed only as a guide to identify energy savings. It does not remove the requirement to seek technical expertise for design and specification issues.
