Goodlight achieves impressive savings for high Wycombe Sports Centre
Date Announced: 19 Jun 2012
The use of retrofit LED lighting has provided impressive first year savings in kilowatt hours, CO2 and electricity costs for a High Wycombe sports centre. Supplied by Surrey-based manufacturer LED Eco Lights, the new lighting system incorporates High Bay lights from its Goodlight™ range.
Since installing Goodlight™ High Bay lighting in Wycombe Sports Centre last year, annual kilowatt hours consumption has dropped by 77% from 217,382 to 49,817. This represents an annual cost saving of over £13,000 for Wycombe District Council, as well as an annual CO2 reduction of almost 100 tonnes.
Graham Weston, Energy Officer at Wycombe District Council, commented: “Wycombe District Council is committed to ensuring our impact on the environment is minimised as far as possible. The installation of these LED lights has not only reduced our annual carbon emissions at Wycombe Sports Centre, but is also saving the council and the taxpayer over £13,000 a year in electricity costs.”
Wycombe District Council financed the lighting installation at Wycombe Sports Centre using Salix ‘invest to save’ funding and the complete retrofit Goodlight™ installation is on course to achieve a payback period of under three years.
The Goodlight™ High Bay lights specified for Wycombe Sports Centre are already being used in a multitude of other high bay applications including other leisure centres, retail outlets, warehousing and distribution centres and more. They are available in various colour options, are IP65 protected and covered by Goodlight’s™ comprehensive five year guarantee.
