Saving you money, saving the environment
Rising energy costs, legislative charges and environmental considerations are major concerns for most businesses.
Outdated lighting systems are costly to run, expensive to maintain and often do not provide the correct levels of required illumination.
Modern low energy lighting systems are far more efficient and reduce the requirement for expensive maintenance.
Our daylight and presence detection systems adjust lighting levels to reduce lighting costs wherever possible and our high efficiency LED lamps and fittings provide enhanced lighting output and are much cooler to run.
Saving you money, saving the environment… maintaining the light environment.
Many existing lighting installations use inefficient lighting equipment. Substantial savings can be achieved by installing energy efficient luminaires, lamps, and control gear.
Lighting typically accounts for 20-30% of all electricity usage in the UK. Substantial savings can be made by switching to energy efficient lighting.
It is estimated that by phasing out incandescent lamps, the equivalent of the combined output of two atomic power stations can be saved per year!
The Energy Saving Trust estimates that replacing an incandescent lamp with a CFL will save up to £9 and up to 38 Kilograms of CO2 per year!
Energy Saving Lighting
Lighting control systems can greatly improve the efficiency of a lighting installation. Lights can be automatically dimmed or switched on and off as required. Daylight sensing and motion sensors will prevent lights operating unnecessarily.
Lighting systems including CDM, high pressure sodium and metal halide lamps can be replaced with compact fluorescent lamps, LED, induction and cold cathode lighting providing opportunities to substantially reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint.
Litenow provides a variety of solutions to reducing the cost of Warehouse Lighting.
Intelligent ballast controls and lamps can be utilised to reduce the cost of running an existing high bay lighting installation. Fittings can reduce to 50% of light output when no presence is detected.
T5 fluorescent fittings will dim to 10% of light output and can be used with a variety of control systems to achieve maximum savings whilst ensuring correct levels of illumination are maintained.
LED fittings will ensure reduced maintenance visits and a huge reduction in running costs.
The advantages of replacing High Pressure Sodium (HPS) fittings with LED
High Pressure Sodium fittings are slow to warm up and will not restart instantly after switch off
LED will light instantly at full brightness
HPS contain harmful gases and require regular lamp changes
LED Contains no harmful gases
HPS generate high levels of heat and are relatively inefficient
LED has low levels of heat output-ideal for chiller and cold store applications
HPS ballasts and lamps are susceptible to voltage fluctuation
LED will tolerate voltage fluctuations due to wide operating range
Litenow provide electrical load analysis and reduction proposals to help your business save on electricity costs.
Analysis of the electrical supply will show the typical energy consumption of your business. Are lights being left on unnecessarily? Do time-clocks switch on lights when not required?
Can lighting control systems be implemented to help your business reduce running costs and reduce carbon footprint?
Our smart metering systems allow you to see where maximum savings can be achieved.
What is Voltage Optimisation?
Voltage optimisation is a technology that can help reduce losses in electrical equipment, creating a reduction in electricity consumption and costs – typical savings are 10%, but can be as high as 25%.
The supply voltage has now been standardised throughout the European Union at a nominal 230 Volts plus or minus 10%.
This means that the voltage delivered to your premises can be anywhere from 207 to 253 Volts!
The optimum voltage for electrical equipment in the UK is 220 Volts.
Stabilising the voltage supply at 220 Volts can substantially reduce your energy consumption and reduce costs.
The installation of a Voltage Optimisation system can also help prolong the life of your business equipment, as voltage fluctuations are eliminated and expensive breakdowns are avoided.
It optimises voltage, dealing with the discrepancy between the actual supply voltage you receive (207V – 253V) and the optimum voltage your electrical equipment needs (220V). For the first time ever, it gives businesses, manufacturers, councils and government the opportunity to micro-manage and improve their own power supply.
