LED Lighting Installation Helps Leicester Charity Save Funds

LED Lighting Installation Helps Leicester Charity Save Funds

Leicester based electricians, Blaby Electrical, have reported an increase in the number of businesses deciding to make the switch to LED lighting for their workplaces, as the benefits begin to become more apparent to business owners.

Blaby Electricals client, Mosaic 1898 – a disability charity located in Leicester Forest East, have recently decided to convert, and invest in LED lighting alternatives. Blaby Electrical installed 90 LED lighting fixtures for the Leicestershire charity and according to Blaby Electrical, an LED rollout of this scale will offer a huge financial benefit to Mosaic 1898 as time goes by, helping save funds and cut down on energy costs. It is predicted that the charity will benefit from an annual saving on energy of over £1,500 and can look forward to an anticipated ROI, over ten years, worth almost £7,500! This is further compounded by rising energy tariffs.

In terms of the energy-saving possibilities, Blaby Electrical have predicted that Mosaic 1898 will now achieve annual savings of just over 5,400 kW hours and almost 1,300 Kg of CO2, which is the equivalent amount of CO2 reduction if up to as many as 126 mature trees were planted!

Mosaic 1898’s Chief Executive Officer, Zoheb Shariff said:

“The decision to invest in LED lighting with Blaby Electrical was an easy one for us, and undoubtedly the right one. The move to more efficient and effective lighting not only furthers our commitment to creating safe and comfortable environments for our people to do their life enhancing work, but it also means taking an important step forward in our responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint. The icing on the cake is the ROI we are expecting to achieve, particularly at a time of soaring energy prices, every pound we save on energy costs will help the charity to make additional positive impact.”

LED lights offer countless benefits due to being the most energy-efficient form of lighting. They have a prolonged lifespan, lasting 40 times longer than an incandescent light bulb and 2 – 4 times longer than most fluorescent, metal halide and sodium vapour lights. They have complete design flexibility, reduced light wastage and massive savings on energy costs, and that’s just some of the benefits swaying business owners to convert to LED alternatives.

Blaby Electrical said

“LED lighting replacements are something we believe everyone should consider, they offer a multitude of benefits for many businesses working environment, financial savings, building control compliance and many more, as well as a significant reduction on your carbon footprint, something we should all be looking to do. With product warranties of up to 7 years by our trusted manufacturers and life spans in excess of 40,000 lamp hours (15-20 years for many businesses) the returns can really add up.”
