Zero Energy Cost Lighting is an installation that allows a business to generate its own energy for use in powering the lighting. This is normally done with a Solar PV system, which generates energy from the daylight hitting the roof of the building. This generates power for the business to use, whilst also providing the business with a 20-year income stream from government feed in and export tariffs.
The lighting should be as energy efficient as possible to ensure you use as little of the generated power as possible, meaning the generated energy can be used to power other things in the business such as heating. LED Lighting is the most energy-efficient lighting available and when coupled with Solar PV, it is an installation with a great ROI, a dedicated income stream for the business and free energy to power the lights.
An installation of this type is hugely beneficial to a business, as generating your own energy means you don’t need to pay high energy prices to use electricity from the grid. The business also receives an income for having a Solar PV installation. The LED Lighting is extremely energy efficient and provides a well lit, highly visible work area. Better lighting is proven to improve productivity in the workplace and will boost employee morale. With this dual installation in place, a business can expect to see installation costs paid back in a short time.
