Carbeile School provides a better learning environment for their students
It’s important that a school environment is well lit so that concentration and learning are optimised. For Carbeile School their old, dim lights were replaced by highly-efficient LEDs throughout the building.
The school is now better lit and they save almost 66% on their yearly energy bills. With these savings, the cost of the installation will be paid for within 5 years.
“We were extremely pleased with the initial advice we received from Fred when first investigating LED lighting. We were able to view different types of lighting so that we could make an informed choice.
We also had invaluable help with the finance applications and benefited from a Carbon Trust grant because Fred was able to support us throughout both processes.
The lights themselves provide a fresher look to the whole building. Classrooms are brighter but without the glare of the old strip lighting, this is of huge benefit in smaller rooms and offices.”
