Clickwise Ltd is an online shoe retailer, based in an industrial unit on Forest Road, Leicester. The unit is split between an office area and a warehouse.
Clickwise Ltd initially contacted Leicester City Council due to their high energy bills. Support and advice was provided by Leicester City Council on ways to reduce their energy usage.
During the initial site visit, it was highlighted that the 500W sodium lights in the warehouse were highly inefficient and adding considerably to their energy costs. It was recommended that these were changed to energy efficient equivalents.
Therefore, Clickwise Ltd applied for the ‘Carbon Management for Leicester SMEs’ grant to replace their existing lighting in the warehouse with industrial LED lighting.
Clickwise Ltd successfully received a £1,000 grant towards the supply and installation of the new LED lighting. By changing the lights in the warehouse, Clickwise Ltd could save up to £3,600 a year (based on 10 hours a day, 5 days a week and 14.05p per kWh).
