LED Lighting Upgrades at No Upfront Cost

George Riley · 14 Apr 2020

In times like these, it’s vital for many businesses to find ways to save money. It’s even better if saving money also saves energy and reduces the business’s carbon footprint. So we’re delighted to present a service that allows you to invest in long term savings, with no initial capital outlay...

By partnering with ECI Energy, Ireland’s leading lighting company, we can now offer LED lighting upgrades at no upfront cost. Instead, the service is repaid through a proportion of your bill savings over 5 years.

Why upgrade to LEDs?

Many people say that energy efficiency is the cornerstone of making our energy supply sustainable. As the most efficient form of lighting available, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use up to 90% less energy than traditional halogen bulbs (which produce lots of waste heat). So the first benefit of switching your lighting system is to save energy, which is vital in our fight against climate change and great for your corporate sustainability efforts.

Powering lights can be expensive. The tremendous energy savings of LEDs translates into a 50-70% smaller lighting bill. (Some of this will be used to repay your upgrade cost in the first 5 years - more on this below.)

At the same time as switching to LEDs, you can also add lighting controls, ensuring that lights are only on when needed, and adjusting the lighting levels in response to the level of daylight. In an open plan warehouse or office with intermittent occupancy in different areas, intelligent controls typically reduce energy consumption by around 30%.

Replacing bulbs can be a pain, particularly when they are in high or hard-to-reach places. LEDs last up to 16 times as long as halogen bulbs. This results in much cheaper maintenance costs at scale.

LED technology provides bright, even and controllable light. This creates a more pleasant environment and can boost productivity in a workplace.

What is lighting as a service?

It’s clear that LEDs are the future of lighting and there is no reason not to upgrade... except the capital investment required, which can be in the thousands for some companies.

Our new LED lighting as a service offering solves this problem. You can get all your lights upgraded to the latest LED versions at no upfront cost.

  • The service is repaid through a proportion of your bill savings over 5 years (usually about 50% of the savings).
  • Full onsite warranty and maintenance included for 5 years.
  • Like-for-like emergency lighting also upgraded.
  • The entire bill savings are yours after 5 years.
  • You must have a minimum of 100 light fixtures to upgrade.
