We are looking at LED lighting for our HQ in Taunton, at the moment we have Florissant lighting in every Office and hallways throughout the building. LED would hopefully reduce the cost and amount of Carbon we use. We also have 7 sub HQ's around the South West that could benifit from this.
Other areas we are looking at is Under Ground water Heating, if thats the right name for it for any new builds or re builds. As we are the HQ for the Wessex Reserve and Cadets it would be good to have the Greenest Cadet Training Centre in the Country and at Yoxter we are hopefully getting Solar Panels on the Roof of the Kitchen, Dining and Ablutions and looking for ideas to make further Carbon reductions. Any information or ideas to help us make a Greener South West in all our Cadet and TA sites would be gratefully recieved.
We are Lightfoot LED, a friendly company specialising in LED lighting
Whilst LED lighting units are obviously very effective, where possible work with existing Light fittings in your organization’s buildings it will keep costs down.
Benefits of LED Lighting are numerous eg:
• Lower electricity bills (save up to 90%!)
• Longer life: designed to last 50 000 hours (5.7 years even if on
constantly!), dramatically reducing your replacement/maintenance costs
• Environmental: less energy consumption & lighter Carbon footprint
(can you see where we got our name? J)
• Changing Legislation: much ‘traditional lighting’ will be phased
out in the next few years under changing European law
Example Medway Council placed a £21 000 order with us recently for LED tubes (LED replacement for conventional Fluorescent tubes) and we estimate they will save £3100.00 electricity & aproximatly £3000 maintenance a year from it. The pay back was worked out for 3 years LED lighting can slash your future energy costs. Feel free to call us if you need any free advice or support and we will also be more than happy to calculate the Payback period/ROI for you!
