Local store sees an increase in footfall while saving over £2000 by switching to energy saving lighting
Owner Jag Pankhania said it made sense to switch to the energy efficient lighting because it would help cut down on high electricity bills. He has also noticed an upturn in business since the efficient lighting was installed. “The lighting is much brighter and it looks like natural light. More people have been coming into the shop so I’ve noticed business has improved as well,” he said.
He suggests other businesses follow suit, particularly with the high energy costs people are currently facing. But he thinks more could be done to raise awareness among businesses about how lights and equipment work and the amount of energy they use. Jag said: “There needs to be more education for businesses on how they can save money and energy and the simple changes that can be made. If I had known about how much I could save I would have done this much earlier."
Energy monitors have also recently been installed to gauge how much energy is used in the shop. The store has shown how simple it is for any business to save money by saving energy. There are also other benefits of using ‘daylight’ energy-saving bulbs including reducing glare and in Mr Pankhania’s experience, improving business.
