Reduce your carbon footprint with green lighting

Let’s face it, we all need to reduce our carbon footprint. We hear every day how just one thing can help the environment. There are many ways, large and small, to reduce, reuse and recycle. We recycle plastic, metal, glass and paper. We reduce energy usage by turning off lights, computers, turning down thermostats, and by using alternative forms of energy.

All of our efforts large and small, help reduce energy usage and costs. Everyone, all over the world, is making some kind of effort to reduce energy usage. Over in the UK, is helping business of all sizes reduce carbon footprints with commercial and industrial lighting.

Large office space, commercial buildings, factories, all can save up to 60% in energy costs by simply switching to Carbon Catcher lighting.

Commercial Lighting

There have been many advancements in low energy lighting equipment, that allow you to benefit not only from lower wattage fittings, but also from additional savings of up to 30% by coupling low energy fittings with occupancy detectors.

Many offices are well lit by natural daylight coming in through the windows. Intelligent daylight compensating technology can be coupled again with a low energy fitting to allow the lights to dim according to natural daylight levels. This can save an additional 20% or more in some circumstances.

There are many benefits to switching from an inefficient, outdated lighting system to a modern, low energy alternative.  As well as the energy savings shown above, new fittings actually give out a much brighter, whiter light compared to their inefficient counterparts. This can improve working conditions and productivity.

Industrial Applications

Lighting costs in warehouse and factory based businesses can account for up to 80% of the total utility bills. In very large warehouses that are used for distribution or logistics purposes, these lighting costs can easily add up to tens of thousands of pounds annually.

Carbon Catcher have experience in dealing with a variety of industrial premises. In our experience, we have found that large buildings can have very different uses from storage to manufacturing. We understand that the lighting needs in a storage warehouse for example, would be very different to that of a manufacturing warehouse.

Warehouses utilising racking throughout the premises can benefit from great advances in motion sensing to help reduce electricty bills by up to 60%. Long range microwave detectors can enable fittings to be off in an aisle when not occupied, and then on only upon being triggered by a fork lift truck or person.
