Lighting Case Study: Harlow Group Ltd Case Study

This energy saving industrial lighting case study details an installation at an 40,000 square foot factory in Harlow, Essex. Induction low bay light fixtures were installed which reduced the lighting load from 48kW to 10.5kW (78%) resulting in a 50.3 tonne reduction in annual CO2 emissions.

The Company

Harlow Group Ltd is one of the leading UK manufacturers of precision sheet metal components, products and electro-mechanical assemblies. Forming in 1975, and now with several decades of accumulated experience, in-house facilities include prototype work, CNC fabrications and laser profiling, together with a full range of painting and powder coating metal treatments.

The Challenge

The Harlow Group contacted Green Business Light seeking an energy efficient lighting solution to replace the outdated sodium low bays and fluorescent lights located in the works area of their production and warehouse buildings in Harlow, Essex (approximately 40,000 square meters in total). They wanted to:

  • Significantly enhance lighting quality in production areas
  • Provide a quick return on investment
  • Have light fixtures with automatic controls
  • Qualify for a Carbon Trust interest-free loan
  • Reduce the Harlow Group carbon footprint and energy expenditure

Feedback on the Green Business Light Service

"After my initial phone call with the staff at Green Business light, using their knowledge and experience, we determined what Harlow Group wanted to achieve. The help we received was invaluable and the communication before, during and after the lighting installation was excellent, as we knew at all stages of the installation where we stood in completing the project by the finish date as originally set-out. With the new lighting now in place, the Production areas have been significantly improved and day-to-day tasks are now easier to complete." Dean Howard, Harlow Group Ltd.
