LED Low Bays save 92% energy costs- 350 LED Low Bays with PIR and Daylight Dimming

It is often difficult to really understand what to expect in terms of performance and energy saving especially when there are PIR and daylight dimming options included. Initial savings on LED will offer at least a 65% energy saving when compared to conventional lighting but as we often cannot forecast movement and certainly not the weather, there is very little data available on actual projects.

Spectrum Brands based in Wolverhampton installed over 350 BSSLED Low Bays and LED High Bays all with Daylight Dimming and PIR sensors to their main distribution depot in Wolverhampton.

The savings are currently running at 92% compared to the conventional lighting

Daylight dimming allows a pre-set light limits to be set allowing a constant lux level by dimming the LED luminaire, the feature also allows the lights to turn off when light levels exceed the set limit and de-activate the PIR sensors.

18 months after installation energy savings have been as follows:

350 x 250w Metal Halide Lamps 4160 hours per year                 Yearly Operating Cost:   £ 46,000.00

350 x 100w LED Low Bays with PIR/Daylight dimming:            Yearly operating Cost:    £   3,680.00

Savings per year:                                                                                                               £   42,320.00

Percentage Saving:                                                                                                                       92%

Failures are currently at zero percent.
