The Tool Connection contacted Green Business Light seeking an energy efficient lighting solution to replace the older lights in their office & warehouse sites in Southam, Warwickshire. In an initial discussion with Andy Hughes (Quality and Environmental Co-ordinator), Green Business Light established the main requirements to be: * To significantly reduce the business lighting bills with a new energy saving lighting system which would also include automatic level controls ; * To reduce the lighting maintenance requirement (to eliminate the cost of hiring of access equipment); * To vastly improve the lux levels and quality of light for the workers in the warehouse buildings;
New Lighting System Solution
Feedback on the Green Business Light Service
"Andy Hughes (Quality and Environmental Co-ordinator) commented "The Tool Connection have recently undertaken a programme of building improvements that included the installation of PV, improved heating control and better use of our lighting. We contacted Green Business Light with our requirements and were impressed by the speed of the response - on explaining the options to us, we were caught between LED, induction and T5 lighting but the outlay was less significant with the T5 fluorescent option. After the lighting installation we have seen significant improvements in our energy consumption across the site. The result is a much more comfortable working environment within the 90000 square feet of our warehouse area
