Birmingham electrical contractor PH Adams were to replace 108 original 4×18 T8 CAT 2 fittings with highly efficient innovative LED flat panels save the owners over £3300 per annum in electricity and maintenance costs.
G2 Electrical Wholesale carried out a comprehensive survey to determine the current lighting consumption. The results showed usage of ten hours per day, 300 days per year and a calculated cost of 11p Kwh per hour.
The new panels effectively reduce the current annual lighting maintenance cost of Imperial House from £1200 to zero with a further £2067 saving in electricity costs. As an extra benefit, the LED lighting fittings come with a five-year warranty. Presence detectors were also introduced, which anticipate a further 20% energy consumption reduction.
