The take up of large-scale LED lighting and the benefits it brings to schools and businesses

It’s not news to many that LED adoption is picking up pace across the UK and the rest of the world, and it’s no surprise when there are huge cost savings and efficiencies to be made. The US energy body, Energy.gov, expects that by 2027 use of LED lighting could save the US 358 TWh of power. 

Some of the benefits of LED lighting installation, and who would benefit, are listed below:

Schools
For security, and other reasons, there is often the requirement for lights to be on all the time. This is both costly and not very eco-friendly. LED lighting is often perfect for schools and academies as it not only provides energy and cost efficiencies, but it can also be a low maintenance form of lighting as typically it has a longer lifespan than conventional lighting.

Warehouses, Supermarkets and Factories
Where lighting is needed on huge scales, whether it’s in supermarkets, factories or warehouses, LED lighting brings many benefits. Cost savings being a key one of course, but also the lower maintenance needed is a huge bonus too. 

Large Scale Fridges, Freezers and Cold Rooms
A common problem with large scale walk in freezers or cold rooms is the lighting needed to make them useable also heats them up, so there’s a constant, expensive battle on your hands between light, heat and cold. One of the key benefits of LED lighting is the reduced amount of heat it produced when compared to other light sources, making it very suitable for large scale fridge/freezers and/or cold rooms. In these cases the financial pay term can be as short as 3 years.

Businesses
Businesses and offices up and down the country are looking not just to cut the costs of their energy bills, but are also keen to reduce their carbon foot print and reduce maintenance costs. LED lighting adoption by businesses covers all these points. 

Getting Started with LED Lighting
The upfront costs needed to install LED lighting are often significant making its adoption a little daunting for business owners or those in control of company finances, but the financial gains more often than not outweigh the initial cost outlays.
