Following our Energy Audit back in 2008, SiD was able to raise a grant of £5,000 in 2015 from the Leicestershire County Council Community Climate Change Fund to upgrade to LED lighting. On the back of this grant we were able to raise a grant of £9,320 from Awards for All for the same purpose. As a result we were able to instruct a company called LiteLite to replace existing lights in the following (well used) areas:
Scout Hall, Function Room, Sports Bar Dance Studio, Gym, both the squash courts, corridors, downstairs toilets and the external security lighting.
In 2015, prior to the LED installation, our solar panels generated 91% of our consumption of electricity
In 2017 our solar panels generated 110% of our much reduced consumption (25% less) due to the LED lighting!
