Commercial Lighting Solutions
Under the REES scheme, there are incentives for businesses to upgrade to energy efficient lighting, where eligible businesses can have their fluorescent tubes and halogen downlights replaced with LEDs either subsided or in some cases at no cost. A change of government however, could mean the scheme no longer exists, so now is the time to take advantage of these incentives. 

We specialise in delivering efficient lighting services to the commercial sector. We assess existing lighting and supply information on benefits, energy savings and payback periods. We retrofit the lighting replacements and removal and decommissioning of old equipment.
