HOW IT WORKS

For a fixed monthly fee, our energy efficiency specialists will design, source and retrofit new LED lighting on your premises, and fully maintain it for the duration of your contract. Capital can be preserved for growth and total fees are equivalent to a traditional upfront LED installation. Our fee is always lower than the savings you’ll be making, meaning net savings from day one.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION AUDIT

A no obligation, data-driven energy and lighting survey to assess your current energy consumption and lighting levels.

HASSLE-FREE INSTALLATION

ongoing maintenance

FULL MAINTENANCE

You pay a fixed monthly fee out of your savings, and your LED installation is fully maintained at its optimum level for a 5-7 year term.

Schools

Make significant savings on school lighting costs and create a better learning environment for your students by switching to high quality LED lighting with no upfront cost. We handle everything and ensure a fully optimised lighting solution that delivers maximum savings for your school.

The Green Energy Fund enables us to deliver you the highest quality LED lighting solution for your school to drive down costs and reduce your impact on the environment.

Healthcare

Healthcare facilities like hospitals and care homes can make substantial benefits from LEDs from cost, safety, and environmental perspectives. As healthcare facilities invest a significant amount into lighting to ensure staff can safely perform their duties, the resulting energy bill can be high, especially for facilities that are open 24/7.

LED lighting is brighter and easier on the eyes than non-LED which ensures a comfortable environment for staff, patients, and visitors. The upgrade to LEDs should reduce energy use by an estimated 70% which would more than cover your fixed monthly fee which pays for the initial installation and full maintenance for the duration of the contract. Your guaranteed savings can be used for the growth and improvement of your healthcare facility.

Industrial

We fit and install all industrial lighting requirements including energy-efficient LED warehouse lighting, and LED factory lighting. Our lighting ensures improved health and safety for your employees in an environment that meets industrial lighting standards. We’ve seen an average reduction in lighting energy use by 69%, freeing up funds that can be used for growth.

With large premises, we understand that switching to LED lighting can feel like a huge risk, in time and disruption as well as capital. That’s why we offer a capital-free, Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS) solution which allows us to source direct from the top European LED manufacturers, so we can select the best technology for your space.

Retail

We make energy efficiency easy for retail stores. Our specialists audit your premises to assess burn time, lux levels and energy use to provide you with tailored lighting. The right retail lighting solution can improve your store’s ambience and make your products look more appealing. LEDs are the perfect lighting solution for shops, with higher lux levels as well as reduced carbon emissions.

This translates to better lighting, and a better customer and staff experience as a result. Lighting for your shops is improved, moved off your balance sheet and you save capital to invest in growth.

“eLight provided a turn-key solution to replace our sports hall, drama and squash court spaces, not only were they very cost competitive but the installation team worked quickly and professionally providing us with a seamless installation.”

Alastair Blackmore, Estates Manager, Abingdon school

“We used eLight as they were able to provide us with the perfect solution for our requirements, both a zero capital outlay and a fully managed LED solution. They carried out a fully extensive audit to establish our baseline and proposed savings of in excess of 1 million pounds over 10 years.”

Steve Halmshaw, Business Improvement Leader, David Brown Santasalo

“The lighting refurbishment carried out went very well, the team from eLight were excellent.

They completed the work quickly and efficiently with no disruption to the branch over the two days they were here. The installation has made a dramatic difference, with the showroom/counter area being much brighter and the inclusion of sensor lighting in the warehouse areas, which should pay dividends on supply costs. Overall we are very happy with the works carried out and the subsequent transformation.”

Paul Watkin, Branch Manager, Plumbase.

“On its own it’s a small step, but we are teaching our students something of the value of making sound environmental choices. It is particularly helpful that in doing so we are also saving money for the school.”

Principal David Hayes, Malahide Community School

“As a craft brewer, sustainability is an important part of our philosophy. We are very attuned to the importance of nature. All our ingredients are natural. Reducing our energy by 62% for lighting is a really positive step for us. The fact that it was done with no capital requirement and that it will deliver savings for years to come is an extra bonus for us.”

Sally Anne Cooney, Boyne Brewery

“eLight provided an excellent lighting solution for our school, replacing our old, tired and costly-to-run lights with no upfront cost. have commented that the new lighting is much better and it has really improved the classroom environment.”

Shirley Si Ahmed, School Business Manager, Purley Oaks Primary School

“The environmental agenda is being driven by children all over the world. Our students are part of the generation that are taking leadership and demanding change. We are delighted to enter this new partnership with eLight!”

Deborah O’Hare, Principal, Wallace High School

“We have been very impressed with the levels of light of the new system and the quality of the work done by the installation team was second to none. There was no disruption and they worked around our needs. The factory looks brighter and cleaner than it has in years, is compliant to all lighting standards and it is now a pleasure to show customers and prospective customers around the site.”

Andrew Smith, Qualvis Maintenance Manager

“We have noticed huge benefits since we switched to LED lighting with eLight. Not only are our lights great quality but eLight have enabled us to start meeting our climate change objectives”

Michelle Faulkner, School Business Manager, Stretford Grammar School

“All schools are under significant pressure to reduce costs. It is not often that we can do that while improving the learning environment for our students. Our partnership with eLight is now delivering real benefits for our school.”

Mark Webb, Operations Manager, Culford School

“We have been a family business for over 50 years. In this time, we have always looked to enhance the sustainability of our business. This is more important than ever, with our customers wanting to know about the carbon footprint of our product. This new lighting will reduce our carbon footprint by over 25 tonnes every year. Every potential new customer we meet, we will highlight what we do to reduce our environmental impact. To be able to do this, while saving money is fantastic.”

McCormack Family Farms

“People joke about keeping the lights on, but we were genuinely astonished at the cost involved in lighting our school.  When we met with eLight, they showed us that with LED lighting our cost would fall to under €4,500. They reduced our energy use by 70%.”

Donahies Community School Principal, Peter Keohane

“Like all schools we have to identify funding where we can.  Normally, to get these kind of improvements you have to be able to pay a big lump sum up front, that simply isn’t an option for our school, or most schools.  Every penny is carefully watched and spending is prioritised.  This was excellent, we were installing a system that would not only save us money for the next 15 years, it would actually release cash to us in year one.”

Kenmare Community School Principal, Dermot Healy
