LED technology reduces petrol forecourt costs by 90%
With more than 350 petrol forecourts under its ownership, MRH (GB) Limited spends in excess of £300,000 a year on lighting costs and electrical maintenance. However, an innovative project which saw MRH work with npower Business Solutions, Energy HQ (nBS, EHQ) looks set to reduce energy costs by almost 90%, saving the company some £260,000 each year.
Petrol forecourt lighting is often required 24 hours a day to ensure a practical and safe environment for staff and customers. With more than 4,000 incandescent lamps across its 350 petrol stations in the UK, MRH (GB) Limited had high energy consumption levels. In addition, the complexity of maintenance in such a high throughput and potentially hazardous area was also contributing to rising costs.
