Brightening warehouses and lightening energy costs

With mounting pressure on businesses to cut costs throughout their organisation, warehousing and industrial operations throughout the UK often overlook one of the simplest yet most effective ways of saving money fast.

Lutterworth Ecolighting designs, manufactures and installs energy efficient lighting into warehouses and industrial premises across the country. The company replaces traditional sodium lighting with fully automatic lighting systems that use individual motion detection and daylight dimming technology to ensure lights only operate when required.

Typically, this results in its customers making energy savings in excess of 70%. Return on investment is rapid and is usually within one to three years.

In addition to substantial economic benefits, energy efficient lighting provides a sustainable contribution towards the fulfillment of long-term environmental objectives. Significantly lower energy consumption means a reduced carbon footprint and less impact on the environment.

Aside from the financial and environmental factors, the most obvious and instant benefit of energy-efficient lighting is the superior light quality that the new technology generates. The result of a lighter and brighter working environment is improved visibility and enhanced workplace safety for employees.

Working closely with its customers, Lutterworth Ecolighting’s trained engineers coordinate all installations carefully to ensure minimal disruption to day-to-day operations.

The numerous benefits of energy-efficient lighting have recently been extolled to Carlsberg by consultants EHS Projects.

Steve Powers, Director at EHS Projects says: “We have worked with Lutterworth Ecolighting for several years now and we are delighted to be at the point in this project where their lighting solution is installed and contributing to Carlsberg’s carbon reduction commitment. The installation of Ecolite technology into the national network of distribution centres will help Carlsberg with this commitment, but will also improve the working environment for the employees and generate significant cost savings for the business.”

“The significant savings available through a change of lighting is gradually dawning on UK businesses and this is being reflected in the growing number of enquiries we are receiving – especially from 24-hour warehousing and distribution operations,” says Lutterworth Ecolighting’s sales and marketing director, Steve Gardner. “Even companies with strict limits on capital expenditure are able to achieve worthwhile benefits through a simple review of their current lighting configuration and strategy.”

Lutterworth Ecolighting designs, manufactures and installs energy-efficient lighting solutions in warehousing and industrial operations throughout the UK.

The company’s fully automatic lighting systems only operate when required by incorporating individual motion detection and daylight dimming technology. This results in customers regularly achieving savings of more than 70 per cent in energy costs.

Offering a full turnkey service that includes site surveys, design, installation, warranty and after sales care, Lutterworth Ecolighting is a member of the Electrical Contractors’ Association and employs its own qualified engineers.

As a Part L registered company, its comprehensive range of light fittings assists in meeting the demands of Part L Building Regulations.

Established in 1971 as Lutterworth Electrical, the privately owned business re-branded as Lutterworth Ecolighting in 2010 in response to growing demand for energy efficient lighting solutions.
