Lighting in the public and commercial sector provides a massive opportunity to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions, helping to contribute to climate change targets whilst lowering operational costs.
Lighting accounts for around 18% of UK electricity use; non-domestic lighting accounts for around 70% of this with street and road lighting accounting for around 4%.
Premium Light Pro addresses this by providing support services to organisations involved in upgrades to more efficient technology, both on the demand and supply side. High quality LED systems can deliver lighting solutions for businesses and public sector organisations at a fraction of the cost of older fluorescent and halogen lighting; beyond this, the compatibility of LEDs with a variety of control systems enables further energy saving potential and flexibility that was not previously possible with older technology.
However, there are many considerations when upgrading lighting. The quality of products on the market is highly varied. Lighting installations require good design, with the right solution for the task at hand.
Premium Light Pro's support services to address this include:
