The Solution

Menorah High School for Girls engaged SaveMoneyCutCarbon because of its extensive knowledge and experience in the education sector in delivering energy-saving projects.

A full survey was carried out, which identified that a full LED lighting upgrade would provide excellent energy and carbon savings with the capital cost of the project covered by lower energy bills.

The school was given investment-ready proposals, with all the essential carbon and payback ROI calculations driven from the detailed surveys and in-depth product knowledge.

The survey and specification team proposed that 761 quality LED panels and lights be retrofitted because this type of lighting uses an exceptionally low amount of energy and well as being highly reliable and having a long working life of around 50,000 hours.

The SaveMoneyCutCarbon team also carried out a full survey of the rooftop space to specify and select the array of solar panels needed to provide 25Kw of electricity generation.

Further savings were achieved with the installation of 11 energy-saving hand dryers.

The installation team – all fully DBS checked – worked closely with the school to minimise disruption.
