Project Aims

The aim of this intervention was to improve lighting LUX levels in the store and to reduce the energy consumed by lighting.

Project Activities

Smart meter readings were taken to establish the baseline consumption before the intervention. These readings were then analysed to provide a consumption profile from which the lighting upgrade was planned.

Post installation, new LUX level readings were taken and smart meter readings collated. M&V was carried out on the before and after intervention readings and savings were determined.

Project Outcomes

The LED lighting upgrade achieved the following results:

  • 54% energy reduction
  • 74% average LUX improvement

The client was also presented with:

  • 5-year guarantee for the lights
  • Certificate of Compliance for the installation
  • Before and after LUX readings covering the entire store
  • Commissioning certificate
