Energy Efficient Lighting at Lincoln’s Inn
We recently had a job north of the Thames – venturing into Holborn to carry out some work for the Barristers of Radcliffe Chambers at Lincoln’s Inn. The chambers are situated in the New Square, which is actually quite old and dates back to the end of the 17th century though work was also done on the buildings during the middle of the 19th century. Outside, Lincoln’s Inn Fields is pleasantly set out and is undoubtedly a great space for the barristers to think about their upcoming cases!

If you run a cold store in South London, you may well be looking at ways in which to save money to make your business more profitable. But did you know that simply changing to LED lighting could improve your finances directly and indirectly?
What is LED lighting?
An LED (Light Emitting Diode) is an electrical component that produces light when an electrical current passes through it. Unlike conventional lighting which converts the electricity into heat to produce light, the electricity is converted directly into light. This means that it is more efficient and you get a lot […]
2014 saw the implementation of the ESOS regulations by the UK government. ESOS is the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme that is run by the Environment Agency that is designed to move British business towards a lower carbon footprint. If your business is comes under the umbrella of being a ‘Large Undertaking’ as defined in the regulations, you will need to carry out an energy use audit by the end of 2015 and once every 4 years after that.
But even if you don’t qualify as a ‘Large Undertaking’ you can still do your bit – after all, reducing the carbon […]
For most south London businesses, the carrot of financial savings is the driving force behind changing outdated conventional warehouse, factory, commercial and retail lighting. In this second part of our insider’s guide to modern lighting for south London businesses, we look at operational benefits.
With your existing HID high bay and low bay lighting, the life expectancy of a bulb is just 2 years. In practical terms, it is actually less as some types of HID bulbs lose up to 70% of their brightness well before that. High bay lighting bulb changing is always difficult, you either need to […]
There are a lot of reasons why changing conventional high bay and low bay lighting and replacing with LED lighting makes sense.
In this, the first part of our insider’s guide to modern lighting for south London commercial and industrial premises, we look at the money savings that could make your business more profitable without shedding staff or increasing prices.
When push comes to shove, profitability boils down to the difference between turnover and expenditure. So reduce expenditure and profitability increases straight away. Energy inefficient devices, including outdated conventional lighting, wastes 20% of your annual energy costs (source: the […]
According to the Energy Saving Fact Sheet issued by the Carbon Trust, up to 40% of your company’s total electricity bill is accounted for by your lighting. LED lighting uses a fraction of the electricity of conventional lighting solutions and, when used with a control system, it is possible to reduce your lighting bill by more than 80% – a powerful reason indeed for changing your south London factory, warehouse, leisure centre, retail unit or garden centre lighting to LEDs.
Cost savings on your electricity bill are not the only benefits
LED lighting is made to give a […]
As winter approaches, many south London retail, commercial and industrial businesses have called us in to replace their lighting with LED units since it forms a large proportion of their running costs. A recent job we carried out for a south London garden centre has already cut their lighting costs to a tenth of the outdated systems they already had in place. Industrial lighting prior to the use of LED luminaires and other units is inefficient as the bulk of the electricity that is used goes into producing sufficient heat to make either a gas or a wire glow hot […]
