Significant savings, starting straight away
Introduced to the club via its partnership with England Hockey, Midstream got to work on designing a cost efficient solution. With the club’s eight masts in good condition, the recommendation was made to opt for a retrofit approach, ensuring that the only cost to the club would be the new luminaires themselves. These took the shape of Midstream’s Modus S Series – a powerful but highly efficient model that is perfectly suited for sports of all kinds.
Each of the Modus S units run at 1.18kw, a significant reduction over the club’s previous lights, which were drawing power at a rate of around 2.3kw. Based on an average per kilowatt hour cost of 20 pence, and extrapolated over the club’s 800 hours of play time in an average year, the new system effectively halves Harrogate’s annual lighting bill – a reduction of almost £5,000 a year on running costs alone.
With maintenance costs factored in, the club’s annual savings could actually be in excess of £6,000. In real terms, that means that Harrogate’s new lighting system should start to deliver a return on investment in less than four years.
Better lighting, lower costs, and rapid payback – that’s the Midstream way.
