16/09/2015 Brilliant LED lighting delights 25 million shoppers

The 25 million customers who use the Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield every year probably have no idea how revolutionary it is.

They love the brilliant lighting – but they won't have realised that the brighter LED bulbs recently retrofitted by Powersave Solutions are saving £300,000 a year.

Brilliant LED lighting delights 25 million shoppers

Better lighting costs 70% less

The new lighting has slashed the centre's lighting bill and CO2 emissions by an amazing 70%. That's a huge reduction in costs and carbon footprint for our client British Land, who own Meadowhall.
We worked closely with centre management to install high-quality LED energy-efficient lighting in all indoor and outdoor communal areas, offices and parking – that amounted to 14,000 lamps!
Meadowhall has made a name for being an eco pioneer. It is the first shopping centre with
 its own recycling centre. Meadowhall also collects and uses rainwater and has free charging for electric cars.

LED lighting specialists

Directors take pride in "doing the right thing" for the environment, so it was natural that when they wanted greener, cheaper lighting, they turned to LED experts Powersave. We have 20 years' experience in the industry and offer a whole solution from energy and lighting reports to manufacturing and installation. No one else can provide this rounded service and depth of expertise.

The results have brought huge business benefits for British Land:

  • Estimated saving of over £300,000 per year on lighting costs
  • Reduction of approximately 1,665 tonnes of CO2
  • Around 70% reduction in kilowatt consumption
  • 10 times less maintenance.

 

And of course the better, brighter lighting that makes shopping at Meadowhall even more of a pleasure.

Energy-efficient LED bulbs – an outstanding solution

Centre director Darren Pearce is thrilled with the outcome of this important project. He said: "Powersave understood my vision and were able to address all the issues and rise above all challenges with professional simplicity. Powersave demonstrated their capacity as an outstanding solutions provider, able to adapt to the project at hand. The brilliant results are evident both visually and financially."
With 1.5 million square feet of floor space, Meadowhall counts among Britain's 10 biggest shopping centres. In the last two decades Powersave Solutions have worked with many prestigious clients in the UK and internationally.
