Lighting solutions for a low-carbon economy

A Manchester-based lighting specialist is helping businesses cope with the cost of meeting their obligations for flexing into a low-carbon economy.

MHA Lighting has invested in developing revolutionary LED technology that offers organisations up to 80 per cent energy savings and slashes CO2 emissions, whilst offering the same higher quality of light of traditional lamps.

MHA Lighting MD, Tom Harrison believes that while the costs of responding to climate change legislation for businesses may be high, it also has immense benefits for a business’ bottom line.

Harrison said: ‘How businesses manage their exposure to carbon price, internally and in their supply chain, will become a major differentiating factor in the markets they operate in.

‘Companies must understand the way that carbon price will impact their bottom line and see that there are significant benefits to be had under the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).

‘These new regulations are real opportunities for the companies at the forefront of new green technology and for those who respond to the CRC swiftly.’

MHA Lighting began developing their patented LED technology in 2008 in response to the Green agenda.

The LED technology was designed to burn 20 per cent of the energy of traditional fluorescents and their 60,000 hour life span (seven years) also eradicates the needs for routine maintenance and bulb replacement.

The LEDs were also designed as a fully-sealed unit to stop dust, bacteria and dead insects from gathering around warm light fittings, making the installations ideal for use in public spaces – particularly in the health sector.

Harrison added: ‘At a time when the Government has set the NHS tough targets to reduce CO2 emissions, more energy efficient lighting is paramount in saving money and reducing carbon footprints.

‘Under CRC large organisations such as the NHS will receive £12 for every tonne of carbon saved. This money can be directly ploughed back into frontline patient services.

‘Trusts are always seeking ways to free up money for clinical care and the battle against superbugs is continuous.

‘MHA Lighting is delighted to have found a solution that can help in both these vital areas and hope to be able to make our technology available to all Trusts nationwide.’

MHA Lighting has now completed numerous lighting refurbishments for the NHS as well as the private health care sector.
