Avent - Insignia LED
The existing fluorescent fittings were replaced with Insignia LED Highbay luminaires complete with EcoSense detectors. This allows for the lighting to switch off when an area is unoccupied and to dim down in light output when the ambient light is sufficient.

The installation involved suspending the Insignia luminaires in a different position to allow improved light levels into the machinery on site. Existing light levels were measured at an average of 240 lux, which were increased to nearly 500 lux with Insignia LED.

The electrical load for the old fluorescent lighting was 3.3KW costing approximately £780.00 per annum to run. We reduced this load to 2.9KW and with the benefit of EcoSense, savings of £572.00 per annum have been estimated.

The proAvent-Insignia LEDject qualifies for Enhanced Capital Allowances:
So if your business pays corporation or income tax at 21%, every £10,000 spent on qualifying equipment would reduce its tax bill in the year of purchase by £2,100.

In contrast, for every £10,000 spent, the generally available capital allowance for spending on plant and machinery would reduce your business’s tax bill in the year of purchase by £378.In other words, an ECA can provide a cash flow boost of £1,722 for every £10,000 it spends in the year of purchase.
