The Sunshine Library has recently gone through a lighting upgrade. Works included delamping, replacement of halogen downlights with LED downlights and replacement of flourescent tubes with LED tubes. For most fittings that were upgraded energy savings are expected to be in the order of 50% to 75% per fitting.
I was out there last week and filmed Peter Fragopoulos explaining the changes that had been made.
LED technology is developing quickly, and its great to see its use becoming more widespread. Some of the advantages are:[bulletlist]
- Large energy savings
