Upgrade your Warehouse lights to LED
Is your business eligible for free or subsidised warehouse lights? Register your interest in our LED upgrade for businesses program using the form below, and we will contact you to discuss upgrading your lights.
Warehouses and manufacturing buildings most commonly use mercury vapor and metal halide highbay lights and fluorescent tubes in smaller office areas. Older highbays typically use 250 or 400 watts each and fluorescent tubes use 36 watts. These inefficient lights can account for 50%+ of your total energy bill. In fact warehouses with no manufacturing machines are likely to have lighting account for almost all of the energy used with some spent on air conditioning in smaller office spaces.
During a retrofit LED upgrade we will decommission your old inefficient highbays and replace them with 100 watt LED highbays, reducing your energy consumption by as much as 75%.
And upgrading your fluorescent tubes to our LED tubes decreases energy consumption by 66%
Under some state incentives, warehouse and manufacturing businesses are eligible for large subsidies to increase carbon abatement and help Victoria decrease its greenhouse gas emissions.
Warehouse and manufacturing lights are often left lit for long periods of time, some as long as 24 hours a day. This can create huge costs for a business and they are significant contributors to greenhouses gas emissions in Australia. Because of this these businesses are eligible for some of the most significant savings under State-run energy saving initiatives like the HEER scheme in New South Wales and Victorian Energy Upgrades Program (previously called VEET).
If you own or manage a business you can get in touch with Energy Makeovers to discuss your current lighting systems, what subsidies you may be eligible for and just how much your business can save.
Previously we would upgrade 400 watt highbays to 150 watt LEDs but with developments in LED technology we can go even further and upgrade to 100 watt LEDs. They oﬀer the
same quality of light and you’ve reduced your energy use even further!
Previous % of energy bill spent on light: 90% New % of energy bill spent on light: 15%
If you’ve ever thought about upgrading the current lighting in your warehouse, don’t do anything until you’ve spoken to Energy Makeovers.
We’re not just specialists in upgrading warehouse and factory lighting to LED warehouse lighting, but as we’re an accredited member of Victoria’s VEU Program (or VEET scheme), we may be able to carry out the upgrade with free or subsidised lights.
Under the regulations of the scheme, if you run a warehouse, wholesale storage or display area, you could be eligible for an LED upgrade.
For starters, it’s going to save you money. Upgrading your old lighting to new LED tubes could save you up to 66% on your lighting bills, plus it will reduce waste, heat, improve the quality of the lighting for your staff, and reduce your carbon footprint too.
Plus, if you or your staff have ever complained about the ‘flicker’ that comes with fluorescent lighting – upgrading your tubes to LED factory lighting will put an end to that too.
Prior to the installation, one of our experienced Energy Efficiency Experts will pay a visit to your warehouse to carry out a thorough assessment.
We’ll then draw up a customised proposal detailing the upgrade, free of charge. All our electrical team are A-grade electricians with experience in retrofit services. Plus we’ll replace your existing light fittings with new LED lighting quickly and efficiently, working around your schedule to ensure that the downtime is kept to a minimum.
Our lighting upgrade installation service includes everything you need to start your electricity savings. From new high-quality LEDs from leading manufacturers with 3-year product and labour warranties to the issuing of a Certificate of Electrical Safety, and high-quality installation service from our expert electricians, your warehouse or factory lighting upgrade will ensure that your new lights are ready to start saving you money as quickly as possible.
After installation, you’ll not only notice that your lighting is just as bright as the lights we’ve replaced, but that the bulbs don’t throw out as much heat; plus, you won’t constantly be changing the bulbs as LED lights last much longer than older lighting technology.
In today’s economy, many businesses that run warehouses are required to stay open twenty-four hours to meet the demands of their customer base. The Internet has changed the world and the way that services and products are both bought and consumed. As such, with the movement of goods happening at an ever-increasing rate within and between states, not to mention internationally, there has been an increase in energy consumption.
LED warehouse lighting has become a key change that thousands of businesses have embraced over the past decade in particular. Even though the business may be booming, it goes without saying that the overheads to meet demand must increase if full advantage is to be taken of the uptick in the level of activity. This inevitably means that energy consumption will continue to increase and the resultant bills grow year-on-year.
At Energy Makeovers, we appreciate that traditional energy providers rarely offer discounts or rate cuts, which means that the cost of their services become more onerous over time. Changing your halogen bulbs or fluorescent lighting to LED alternatives is a way to combat these price hikes and maintain a level of control over your outgoings.
Imagine if from one year to the next you could see a drop in your energy bills of up to 85%. Simply changing your lighting choices could realise this saving for you. What’s more, with government subsidies, rebates and other incentives readily accessible, there’s a chance that you could qualify and pay a fraction if anything to make this a reality.
LED factory lighting delivers on many different fronts. It’s not just about the cost savings that will undoubtedly be seen.
Have your employees ever complained that the quality of lighting they work with hampers them, or makes it difficult to complete their work to a greater degree of efficiency? Have you ever noticed that lights flicker or that workers complain about headaches as a result of this effect? There are many realities that we have become used to in the workplace, which if they were eliminated would make things a lot more comfortable.
From a purely practical point of view, wouldn’t you like to minimise the maintenance and repair side of lighting within your business? You know better than most that when overhead lighting fails and needs attention, specialist equipment is needed to reach it and its presence can grind all work to a halt, for health and safety reasons.
The cumulative downtime experienced in any business over a calendar year all adds up on the balance sheet. With LED lights in place, you gain a system that can last for up to 10 years without requiring replacement or maintenance.
It’s also true that there is a variety of options accessible today that enables the warehouse staff to control the level of the lighting and adjust it as required. Small but simple changes like this can have a massively positive impact and streamline the work processes of your employees.
