Sussex Beds

We are helping Sussex Beds achieve cash positive energy savings and enjoy better quality of light across three stores.

The Challenge
Sussex Beds has built a solid reputation over the past 30 years for supplying quality products, a low prices ad with first class service across seven stores throughout Sussex.

In common with all our retail customers, there is a requirement for high quality lighting, accurate colour rendition and importantly, energy efficiency across their stores and warehouse facilities. In particular they required a complete LED upgrade at three of their stores.
The Solution
Step One – Complete a Site Audit

We offered Sussex Beds a free site audit and submitted a business proposal to demonstrate savings from the recommended upgrade; replacing existing lighting with the appropriate LED fittings, ensuring better quality of light throughout the three selected stores, warehouse and better inventory control.

Our calculations showed they could achieve a Savings Percentage of 78% for store 1, 65% for store 2 and 70% for store 3, per year on their electricity bills.

Step Two – Funding and Finance

Greenlite arranged to finance the upgrade with excellent energy efficiency rates protecting the business’ working capital. In addition the customer qualified for The Carbon Trust Green Business Fund which contributed 15% toward the cost of the project. Sussex Bed’ new lighting scheme would pay for itself and they would effectively be ‘cash positive’ from day one.

Step Three – The Installation

The installation was completed in 4 days per store, by one of our in-house installation teams causing minimal disruption to Sussex Beds’ working activities.
"The project went seamlessly. Greenlite Lighting smoothed our way through the whole process, from the free audit, helping us secure the Carbon Trust funding, and installed the new fittings with minor disruption. The results are great; we’re very impressed with the savings we make on our energy bills."
