St Charles Borromeo Catholic Primary School Upgrade | Templestowe, Victoria
The Project:Stage 1 involved a range of low energy lighting initiatives that could make a significant difference and yet be economically sound.
Similarly, while keen to save as much energy as possible, they did not want to do so at the expense of adequate lighting levels.
Lumex LED Lighting in conjunction with NuGreen Solutions was able to provide an energy management strategy that supported all the objectives of their strategy.
The Solution:The existing installation consisted primarily of traditional fluorescent lighting and halogen downlights.
NuGreen replaced the 25 halogen downlights with Lumex NovaLED™ 8W downlights, and the fifteen 2x36W fluorescents with Lumex NovaBlade™ 40W LED Panels. The solution was enhanced by adding motion sensors in some areas.
Potential Energy & Maintenance Savings:
The work completed in Stage 1 is expected to save the school $1,100 in electricity in the first year and to lower the school’s annual CO2 emissions by 5.5 tonnes.
