Lighting Case Study: AFL Telecommunications

This energy saving industrial lighting case study details a lighting supply & installation project at a 50,000 square foot factory in Swindon. Induction low-bay fixtures were installed which reduced the lighting load from 28.7kW to 14.7kW (49%) resulting in a 31.8 tonne reduction in their CO2 emissions per year.

The Company

AFL provides industry-leading products and services to the electric utility, broadband, communications, OEM, enterprise, wireless and transit rail markets as well as the emerging markets of oil and gas, mining, nuclear, avionics, medical, renewable and intelligent grid. The company's diverse product portfolio includes fiber optic cable, transmission and substation accessories, outside plant equipment, connectors, fusion splicers, test equipment and training.

The Challenge

AFL contacted Green Business Light seeking an energy efficient lighting solution to replace the 94 existing 250W metal halide low bay lights located in their 50,000 square metre factory in Swindon. The company were looking to:

  • Reduce the onsite lighting bills
  • Obtain a high quality white light
  • Eliminate the expenses of HID lamp replacement
  • Significantly reduce the business carbon footprint
  • Improve site safety for AFL staff

Feedback on the Green Business Light Service

"The new low energy lighting installed at AFL has been a success - we have been able to save energy and reduce the general safety risks associated with metal halide fixtures. A retrofit option for the induction lamps into our existing fixture housings was especially useful. Green Business Light listened to our needs and made sure that we were aware of all suitable options for new energy efficient lighting at our site."
