Get 40% Funding for your LED Lighting Project
If you’re an SME in the Kent, Essex or East Sussex area and thinking about upgrading to LED Lighting, there is Government funding available. This is called LoCASE and you can receive 40% towards to cost of the installation up to £10,000.
NCS Technology can carry out a lighting survey free of charge to show you how much money you can save and help you with your LoCASE application. Did you know that by installing LED lights, you can reduce your energy bills by up to 65% and with a 5 year guarantee, you can also save money on your maintenance costs. As well as reducing your energy costs, LED lighting is a key component of a company’s Environmental Policy, reducing your carbon footprint.
We have recently installed new LED Lighting for a printing company in Kent utilising LoCASE funding. Energy use dropped by 183,677.76 Kwhs per year, saving approx. £18,000 per year and 98 tons of CO2 per year.
“Changing to LED lights has made a massive difference to the quality of lighting in the building and has also helped us address our carbon footprint by reducing our electrical usage. Offset Print & Packaging take our environmental commitment very seriously and we are constantly researching ways of reducing our footprint.
With NCS Technology we feel we have found the right partner to advise and guide us through this process. The NCS electricians that installed the lights were all competent and friendly and willing to make changes that we requested as they went along. We will be requesting quotes from NCS for all future electrical work.”
