DG Russell Ltd Commercials Ltd Case Study: Description:

Cost saving £1,800  per year, Energy Saving 6 tonnes Carbon saving per year

The Opportunity

DG Russell Commercials Ltd were experiencing increasing electricity costs which was impacting on the company’s profitability. From monitoring the energy consumption it was discovered that over half of the electricity consumption of the site was from the use of lighting. Lighting comprised of older inefficient fluorescent tubes which were difficult to find replacements.

Replacement of all lighting with LED equivalent was expected to achieve electricity savings of 60%.

Julia Russell from DG Russell Commercials Ltd said that “the lighting installer and Low Carbon SME team did a fanatic job. We have seen our monthly direct debits fall significantly and the improved quality of lighting in the workshops makes the place so much better to work in”.

Outcomes:

  • Improved working environment
  • Electricity bills reduced from £350 per month to £200 per month
  • Electricity consumption reduction by 41%.
