From 2011-2015, the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) conducted a program to improve the energy efficiency of common area lighting at 236 multi-unit residential buildings within its property portfolio. LAHC identified that approximately 70% of the electricity used in the common areas(corridors, fire stairs, carparks, lift lobbies) was due to lighting, with much of it operating 24 hours a day.
The project involved the removal of over 13,000 fluorescent emergency and non emergency light fittings and replaced them with an energy efficient vandal proof light. enLighten’s Chamaeleon LED light was chosen for its proven energy efficiency and compliance with LAHC’s detailed specification requirements.
NSW Government Energy Savings Certificate (ESC) rebates worth $385,000 were claimed for the project, which delivered combined energy savings of 2,570 mWh pa.
