Lighting costs cut by 70%
The Brook car park presented Medway Council with an ideal opportunity to create substantial cost and energy savings by replacing the existing fluorescent lights with LED lighting. Their existing solution meant that the car park lights were constantly on. By introducing intelligent LED lighting, including sensors and timers that dim or turn lights off when not in use, Medway Council has cut their lighting costs by 70%.
LED lighting fitted with intelligent sensors
The new lighting solution, that incorporates an automatic pre-set lighting level of 10%, restores levels to full brightness when triggered by the movement sensors. NCS Technology recommended replacement LED gear trays to enable a quick installation process. It was decided that using drivers and mounting the LEDs directly to the gear tray would improve the cooling capability of the equipment, increasing its reliability, and cutting down on future maintenance costs.
