How Much Can You Save On Your Energy Bills By Switching To LED?

With energy costs rising for businesses everywhere, finding ways to save money is crucial. As we gear up for the winter months, the uptick in energy costs is hitting businesses hard, putting pressure on companies to trim expenses – that’s where LED lighting comes in.

Switching to LED lighting isn’t just about saving money; it’s a smart move to reduce your environmental footprint and meet regulations. But we know what you’re thinking: how much can you really save?

Why Upgrade To LED?

With the upcoming ban on fluorescent lights and ongoing rise in energy costs, now is the perfect time to switch to LED.

In recent years, using LED technology as a light source has overtaken CFL lamps and are now the clear leader in the market, giving you every reason to make the switch. They’re widely accessible and offer a great range of benefits, from increased energy efficiency to reduced carbon emissions, even contributing to better health by minimising headaches and stress.

And listen to this: Swapping just one halogen lamp for an LED lamp can cut around 5 kg of CO2 emissions. It’s a fantastic step toward hitting your carbon reduction targets and making strides in your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental Social Governance (ESG) initiatives.

How Much Money Can You Save?

LED light sources can consume up to 90% less energy and have a much greater life than regular incandescent lamps. That’s a game-changer for your savings.

For example a traditional 600×600 4x18w fluorescent, when swapped with a 600×600 30w LED panel, can save around 57% energy. In many applications, the sheer volume of fittings multiplies these savings even further.

Adding lighting controls, such as dimming and PIR sensors can increase these savings further.

Many buildings have lighting on at 100% output, even when there is lots of natural daylight to utilise, and where there is no occupancy in that area.

Research indicates that businesses using LED lighting, can significantly reduce their electricity costs compared to those using fluorescent lamps – providing a huge opportunity for massive cost savings!

LED prices have dropped significantly since their debut in the market.

Which reduces the original  upfront costs,  reducing the payback period.  Some  LED upgrades can pay for themselves in less than a year. Plus, their extended lifespan ensures ongoing financial benefits over time and reduced ongoing maintenance costs.

Considering that lighting consumes a whopping 38% of a building’s overall electricity expenses, transitioning to LED lighting is a swift and budget-friendly method to cut costs.
