Allington with Sedgebrook is a state run Primary School. We were asked to look at all areas of the school, with the aim of reducing energy consumption refitted with energy efficient LED products.

Key Targets:
• Reduction of energy usage
• Improvement of light quality
• Payback of 5 years or less (for Salix Compliance)
• No disruption to day to day running of the school
In the classrooms and corridors the existing light fittings were either too old or not in the best possible location for maximum light. This enabled use of our New LED fixed ceiling baton lights. The existing fittings were removed and replaced with brand new LED light units.

In all WC’s we used our New Intelligent Sensor lights to replace the existing 2D fittings. These maximise efficiency by only using the power needed to boost ambient light levels, or to illuminate when occupancy is detected. The improvement in light quality was significant.

Within the library and IT room we removed a number of recessed lights and replaced with our LED Grill Panels. This enabled us to reduce the number of fittings and increase light output drastically.

The installation took place over the half term break and was handed back to the school complete before the children returned to school. Therefore there was no disruption to activities at school.
Annual energy savings: £1,828
Annual maintenance savings £1,000
Payback period: 3.1 years
Annual CO2 savings: 9 tonnes
Total savings over 15 year lifespan: £27,420

The graph above shows the actual live energy usage of the school comparing 21st April 2013 to 20th June 2013, as well as the same period for 2014.

Our LED lights were installed on the 24th May 2014 and the drop in total energy can be seen very clearly in blue. This represents a total electrical energy saving of over 50% and what equates to around a drop of over 70% of electrical lighting costs.

This graph “proves” that the quoted energy savings (prior to installation) suggested by Procure Direct are true and accurate and in fact exceeded expectations.

This data is genuine monitored energy usage provided to us by Lincolnshire County Council.
