In most office environments where there are high staff levels, it can be difficult to ensure that lights are switched off when not in use. Carbon Catcher understands that despite raising awareness, staff training and stickers on switches, many staff will still turn a blind eye to unnecessary energy usage. Carbon Catcher have great experience in reducing office lighting costs and overall energy usage.
There have been many advancements in low energy lighting equipment, that allow you to benefit not only from lower wattage fittings, but also from additional savings of up to 30% by coupling low energy fittings with occupancy detectors.
Many offices are well lit by natural daylight coming in through the windows. Intelligent daylight compensating technology can be coupled again with a low energy fitting to allow the lights to dim according to natural daylight levels. This can save an additional 20% or more in some circumstances.
There are many benefits to switching from an inefficient, outdated lighting system to a modern, low energy alternative. As well as the energy savings shown above, new fittings actually give out a much brighter, whiter light compared to their inefficient counterparts. This can improve working conditions and productivity.
We would like to speak with any business owners who have high overheads and would like these reduced significantly.
