ROI: 0.9 years
Significant energy savings were identified by enLighten for the ATO loading bay by installing the Tauro Eco, which uses the latest LED high bay technology with daylight harvesting and microwave motion sensors. This smart lighting technology reduced power consumption by detecting the natural lighting levels and only activating when needed. If the loading bay was experiencing inactive periods, then the microwave motion sensors dropped the lighting levels to standby mode.
Actual energy savings
The very latest LED high bay technology with daylight harvesting microwave motion sensors was installed in the ATO loading bay to achieve maximum energy reductions of 10,371 kWh in the first year.
The ATO as a result has seen a 94% reduction in daily energy consumption through the installation of the Tauro Eco and replacement of the metal halide 400W high bays.
The savings are increased by the LED high bays as they are only activated when natural light is not available and when movement is detected. The Tauro Eco will achieve complete project payback in under a year.
As energy prices rise and greater concerns are placed on the triple bottom line the latest LED technology helps corporate and Government organisations reach their energy and renewable targets. The ATO is currently achieving a 14 ton pa. CO2 reduction.
