The cost of energy is rising whilst simultaneously offices are consuming more energy than ever before. Greater energy efficiency has never been so important for offices around the country. LED lighting is 80% more energy-efficient and delivers much longer lamp life than old fluorescent lighting. The lamps can last up to 50,000 hours – which is over 10 years – running at 12 hours per day, virtually maintenance-free.
Initially people are put off as soon as they look at the figures at the bottom of a quote from electrical companies. Let’s try to ignore that for a minute. Firstly let’s look at the cost of electricity you will be saving in just one year. Even the smallest of offices employing ten to fifty staff will have annual electricity bills in the tens of thousands of pounds. Primarily, the office lights are on 50 to 60 hours a week. In the majority of offices lighting accounts for up to 50% of your energy bills, so it’s not hard to see how you can save a fortune by making the switch to LED lighting.
Secondly let’s look at the ROI (Return on Investment time); these range from 2 to 5 years. At this point many businesses say “We don’t have the budget” not knowing there are government and private schemes are willing to provide funding for such LED lighting schemes.
These schemes are designed to help businesses reduce energy costs but at the same time achieve the UK’s Carbon reduction targets. They are cheap and easy to acquire, what is more important the actual repayments work out less than what you are saving in energy costs.
