Zeta Specialist Lighting, the Bicester-based developer and manufacturer of LED and solar powered lighting systems is an affiliate partner of the Low Carbon Workspaces Project.
Funded by The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Low Carbon Workspaces Project helps organisations reduce the amount of money spent on energy, through the installation of energy efficiency solutions such as LED lighting, insulation and efficient glazing.
The project, delivered and managed by Ngage Solutions, a Buckinghamshire-based not-for-profit, helps small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) identify opportunities to reduce energy usage by offering a match funded grant of up to £5,000 to help pay for the installation of energy efficiency solutions. Grants are open to SMEs across the South East of England (excluding London) and are only approved for activities that quantifiably contribute to a reduction in CO2 emissions from the building identified in the application.
Affliates, including Zeta, are organisations who are helping to promote the Low Carbon Workspaces grant, and who provide services which applicants may find useful.
Adrian Dennis Zeta’s Sales and Marketing Director said: “We are delighted to be a part of the Low Carbon Workspaces Project and look forwarding to supporting SMEs in realising the eco and cash savings that LED lighting offers.”
The advantages of LED lighting over traditional lighting are well documented. The most notable benefit is their long life – LEDs have a lifespan of around ten-years as opposed to the average rated life of a bulb or tube of two-years.
LEDs are fully flexible and can be manufactured in a variety of colour temperatures to produce highly efficient illumination; they are smaller; produce uniform lighting – in an instant; contain less harmful chemicals than fluorescent, last much longer than traditional solutions and have a lower disposal cost at the end of their life.
“LEDs are certainly a greener solution and are replacing traditional solutions due to their longer life and lower running costs; they deliver a significant reduction in power consumption, which makes them a perfect fit for the Low Carbon Workspaces Project,” added Dennis.
