LED lighting slashes costs for leisure centre
Lighting energy consumption at Hyndburn Leisure Centre in Accrington has been massively reduced following the installation of LED lighting from MHA Lighting. In the sports hall, the saving is 64%, representing a lifetime saving of £76 700; lighting levels have also been increased to 500 lx on the floor. In the swimming pool the energy saving is 64%, making an annual saving of £5200.
MHA created a bespoke solution for the sports hall. It comprised 40 LightStar 205 LED luminaires installed into the existing high-bay infrastructure. A further 21 LED luminaires were installed in the swimming-pool area.
The fittings have a minimum life of 66 000 h, reducing the need for maintenance and replacing lamps. The life can be increased to at least 109 000 h if the driver is replaced at the 66 000 h point.
