Lighting represents on average 25% of all electricity consumption in commercial and industrial businesses but could be as much as 90% depending on your market segment. LED Lighting with the highest efficiency lighting on the market, provides the opportunity to save up to 80% on your electricity bills when replacing standard incandescent lighting. The reason behind the savings is because LED’s create the same amount of light using a fraction of the energy. Other key and very much overlooked benefits are that LED technology requires no maintenance and, depending on the devices, the lighting is still at 80% brightness after 50,000 hours usage.

Add to this that only a small percentage of lighting in commercial buildings is controlled by anything other than a simple on/off switch. LED lighting coupled with intelligent controls can provide businesses in up to 90% saving on their lighting electricity bills.

LED lighting gives you more flexibility in creating brighter and friendlier environments compared to traditional lighting, to positively impact on worker efficiency and customer engagement.

Peace of mind Warranty

Designing an energy-efficient lighting scheme requires more than a simple swap of light fittings. At LCS Energy we look at the efficiency of the entire system, analysing the site specific conditions, lighting requirements and occupancy. A combination of the highest efficiency lighting with advanced monitoring and controls creates your optimum intelligent system.

The LED market hasn’t always been so efficient. At LCS Energy we remove any worry and concerns you may have. Our lighting designers, surveyors and installers are fully trained and accredited by the NICEIC. We use British designed and manufactured products from Manufacturers who have a history and pedigree for quality and reliability. We only use fully tested and compliant products allowing LCS Energy to offer a unique 5 year on-site warranty on all LED light fittings.

Financial Sense

Reducing your energy bills by 90%, with a product that is expected to last up to 50 times longer than existing fittings will provide superior savings allowing for sub year 1 payback (on average our clients are experiencing sub 2 1/2 years). Coupled with 100% tax deductible Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme (ECA) it makes the argument for not changing to LED lighting very difficult.

ECA SCHEME – Could your Business Benefit? 

The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme is part of the Government’s programme to manage climate change, and is designed to encourage businesses to invest in energy-saving equipment.

The ECA scheme was introduced in 2001 to encourage businesses to invest in low carbon, energy-efficient technology.

How does the ECA Scheme work?

The scheme provides tax relief for businesses that invest in equipment that meets published energy-saving criteria. The Energy Technology List (ETL) details the criteria for each type of technology, and lists those products in each category that meet them. Investment in LED lighting can qualify for Enhanced Capital Allowances if the products meet certain eligibility and performance standards. LCS Energy uses such products for all installations.

Features of the ECA Scheme;

  • Open to all businesses that pay UK corporation or income tax.
  • Provides 100% first-year capital allowances on investments in energy-saving equipment against taxable profits of the period of investment
  • Only spending on new and unused energy-saving equipment can qualify for Enhanced Capital Allowances
  • Capital allowances are available for spending “on the provision of” plant and machinery. This can include certain costs arising as a direct result of the installation of qualifying plant and machinery, such as transport of the equipment to the site and some direct installation costs.
