SaveMoneyCutCarbon is featured twice in this month’s A1 Lighting magazine focusing on how companies can go green.
CEO Mark Sait leads off an eight-page article with advice and examples that show the business case for energy efficiency with our successful LED lighting retrofit for Menzies Distribution highlighted in a full-page case study.
Mark Sait advises in the magazine:
“LED lighting and smart lighting controls are a winning combination. Simply by replacing current lights with LEDs that give equal or improved lighting quality, businesses can cut their energy costs by 60 per cent or more.”
The article emphasises the need for good business logic in any moves towards energy efficiency and comments on how many businesses find getting approval at board level for this type of improvement difficult but the task is made easier with access to finance.
Mark’s advice on this is:
“We know that cash flow is crucial and we fully manage financing for energy-saving projects as an accredited partner with Siemens Financial Services.
“This can provide ‘Cash Neutral’ funding with no deposit required to minimise upfront costs and is certainly a cost effective alternative to bank lending. For organisations like schools, we partner with Salix Finance to deliver 100 per cent interest-free capital for LED lighting retrofits with payback covered by savings on energy costs.
“For larger companies, energy-saving lighting retrofit could be a big element of any projects developed out of the Government’s mandatory Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).”
