Car Parks are typically in operation 24/7 which can make lighting costly, especially if inefficient light sources are in place causing a drain on energy use and maintenance works. Additionally, they can be dangerous and confusing to pedestrians and motorists if not well-lit.

Energy Savings

LED lighting provides substantial energy savings to car parks with their long operational hours. Case studies have shown up to an 80% electricity saving compared with traditional lighting.

LED combined with lighting controls for zoning, scheduling, motion detection, or even remote management and control of the lights creates even more opportunities for energy savings and drastically improves operations.

Reduced Maintenance

As LED lighting lasts much longer with no bulb replacements required, costs and maintenance work are considerably reduced, which is ideal for car parks with hard to access areas and 24/7 operation.

It avoids disruption to the public using the car park but also reduces the burden to maintenance teams making operations smoother and less costly.

Superior Quality

Car parks, whether indoors or outdoors, are host to a number of effects that require excellent illumination such as parking spaces, vehicles, markings and signage, doorways, entry and exit lanes, lifts and stairs. The safety and security of pedestrians and motorists using car parks relies on the lighting being high quality and evenly lit.

Unlike traditional lighting that easily deteriorates and is prone to failures, LED lighting is superior in quality and has a long lifetime making it much safer for areas such as car parks.

Health and Safety

Typically, car parks use SON lamps, which are energy-consuming and deteriorate quickly leaving highly discoloured lighting or failed lamps altogether. This makes car parks unsafe with dark shadows and low visibility. LED lighting eradicates this problem with long-lasting, uniform clear white light that outlasts traditional lighting by a factor of three.

LED lighting also dissipates less heat than traditional lighting and doesn’t contain mercury or UV, which avoids adding further dangerous chemicals or heat to car parks that already have high carbon emissions. Brighter, high quality LED lighting also helps security teams to maintain visibility and keep the public safe.


Lighting in car parks needs to be robust to withstand the constant movement of vehicles and low ceilings in indoor car parks.

LED light fittings are highly durable, resistant to shock and vibration and available with IP65/66 ratings to protect the fittings from weather conditions, making them the perfect solution for car park applications.

Sustainable Lighting

As well as the energy saving, maintenance reduction and improved operations benefits, changing out your energy-hungry fittings with LED lighting will drastically help reduce your carbon footprint.

“We had been planning the full refit of our lights for a couple of months and having chosen SaveMoneyCutCarbon the fitting team were with us for a couple of weeks before Christmas."

“They were able to come in after the school activities had finished in the afternoon. The Team were very amenable to working around any occupational restrictions we had with clubs and so on.They were a cheerful bunch and left the school tidy everyday with the furniture returned to its usual positions.There were a few changes to the fittings etc. that were noted during the fitting from the original survey and these were put in place without any problems."

Martin Blake, Business Manager at Nicholas Hawksmoor

“LEDs were the next logical step after our earlier lighting improvements but we could not at first secure the budget, given other pressing curriculum needs. However, we worked through the Diocese with SaveMoneyCutCarbon to take the opportunity to apply for Salix funding and the whole process went pretty smoothly."

"Overall, the standard of work from SaveMoneyCutCarbon was impressive. After SaveMoneyCutCarbon secured the interest-free loan, they moved very quickly to install the LED lighting, ensuring that the work was completed during the summer holidays, which was excellent. The early impressions of the new lighting are very positive, particularly in the library area and staff room. I’m sure we will see more benefits as the winter draws in.”

Anthony Murray, Head Teacher, St Bede’s

“The installation team was very professional and the managers responded positively to requests for changes as the project was delivered."

"There was a strong business case for choosing LED lighting and we’re looking forward to reduced costs over many years.The lighting is much improved, a lot brighter and clearly better quality, which I’m sure we’ll notice even more as winter draws in.”

Beverley O’Shea, Business Manager, Bishop Challoner School

LED lighting and lighting controls certainly ticks the boxes and is really is a sound investment that simplifies carbon reduction."

"Lighting controls in particular are a great asset as it is difficult to rapidly change people’s attitudes to switching off lighting."

John Tucker, Facilities Manager, Menzies Distribution

"This is the very latest technology in LED lighting as used at the Olympics and allows us to control the lights across the park using wireless technology directly from my PC or even an iPhone."

"We can create amazing effects in seconds."
