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

Key Targets:
• Reduction of energy usage
• Improvement of light quality
• Payback of 5 years (for Salix Compliance)
• No disruption to day-to-day running of the school
In the classrooms and corridors the existing light fittings were relatively new and in good condition. This enabled use of our New retrofit LED T8 tubes installed into the existing fittings instead of having to replace entire fittings and tubes. This reduced the overall project cost and significantly reduced implementation time.

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. The installation took just 4 days and was completed with an amount of the work being carried out during term time with no disruption to activities.
Annual energy savings: £2,943
Annual maintenance savings £1,000
Payback period: 2.5 years
Annual CO2 savings: 12 tonnes
Total savings over 15 year lifespan: £44,145

The graph above shows the actual live energy usage of the school comparing May 2013 to April 2013, as well as the same period for 2014.

The drop in total energy can be seen very clearly in Red. This represents a total electrical energy saving of over 40% and what equates to around a drop of over 60% of electrical lighting costs. It is also worth noting that Marton Primary school were aware of energy saving procedures before the LED lights were installed. This meant that the energy used prior to the LED being installed was far lower than most schools due to the fact they never had lights on when not really needed.

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.

I am incredibly pleased with the work carried out by Procure Direct. Whilst the technology is very efficient and cost effective - enabling us to spend more money on the education of our pupils, the service provided was excellent. Any issues were solved and above all a professional commitment and caring approach shone through.

A year on from installation we have seen significant savings and energy reduction.
