Before the Eco Lighting Retrofit

After the Eco Lighting Retrofit

After conducting a systematic lighting audit, the energy consumption for lighting at Brewcraft was reduced by 44%.

Hamish Roger-Wilson, Business Development Manager at Brewcraft said “Every light globe from the warehouse to the office was replaced during the retrofit”. Having almost halved our energy consumption for lighting, this retrofit will make a sustainable, significant impact on the environment”.

Hamish added, “Another advantage from this retrofit is that the new efficient globes last longer, hence the amount of time we will spend changing light globes in the future will drastically reduce”.
