A NORTH-EAST healthcare waste management firm has managed to save money on its electricity bill and become more eco-friendly by switching to energy efficient lighting.

Newcastle-based SRCL is looking for further improvements in 2013 after installing high level luminaires after taking advice from Lockwell Electrical Distributors and lighting manufacturer Premium Lighting Solutions (PLS).

Ian Stidolph, Plant Manager at SRCL said: “The audit that PLS carried out not only provided the correct lighting for our facility but incorporated energy efficiency and cost savings in a very short space of time. The job was carried out in a prompt fashion and in a professional manner.”

Lisa Hammond, Branch Manager at Lockwell Electrical Distributors’ Gateshead branch said: “While businesses are often concerned about the upheaval and expense of modernising their lighting, SRCL’s experience shows that actually the process can be incredibly smooth and that the results – in terms of money, energy and CO2 – can be substantial.”
