In a drive to reduce carbon emission the Government passed changes in 2018 affecting the Energy Performance Rating of domestic Landlords and commercial buildings which must now achieve a minimum rating of E. These Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) rules apply initially to new tenancies or contract renewals, but by 2020 will apply to all domestic rented properties on the market and by 2023 all commercial properties.
Switching to efficient LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lighting significantly improves a buildings energy rating while offering substantial cost saving against energy bills. Over the last twelve months we have been inundated with commercial clients wishing to reduce their carbon footprint and with many grants, loans and incentives available switching need not ‘cost the earth’.
Smart LED lighting is on average 60% more efficient than traditions alternatives and costs 80% less to run. Lighting levels are improved, carbon emissions are reduced and the life span of an LED lamp can be 8 to 10 times longer than a traditional lamp so there is far less maintenance and replacement required.
