Upgrade Summary

Victorian Power Savers was called upon to help design an LED lighting system that would be energy efficient and affordable for the Primary School. The designers worked towards ensuring that the correct lighting levels were maintained, while focusing on reducing the business' operating costs. It was decided that the existing fluorescent lighting would be retrofitted to the highly efficient 10.5w Philips LED Tubes. Our team of electricians rolled out the update over a weekend, followed by our designers returning for the post installation lighting audit. The lighting audit identified that the light levels had increased by 99%, with a 76% reduction in energy consumption. The Primary School was eligible for a Tier 1 - 100% rebate, which means that the entire cost of the upgrade is covered by the rebates enabled through the VEET scheme. The faculty returned on the Monday and was amazed with the transformation of their offices and classrooms.
