“LSA Technology & Performing Arts College is one of the largest schools in the North West with over 1400 students populating its campus.
With energy bills exceeding £120,000, the school had tried a number of different ways to materially reduce its annual spend. Most of these efforts involved staff and students remembering to turn off lights and equipment and close windows and doors so was not always practical or effective.
As a local supplier, the school approached UK Energy Watch to carry out a survey to look at the possibilities of a full LED installation. Throughout the process, UK Energy Watch was able to guide us through the jargon and the technicalities which allowed a decision to be taken to proceed, and with the further help of a Local Authority approved electrical installer the project was completed on time and within budget during the summer break in 2016
Although there were initial concerns around the project being delivered within the timescale, working with UK Energy Watch proved to be a very positive experience, with the focus at all times directed towards the needs of the school. With such a large project it was inevitable that issues would arise but these were dealt with calmly and professionally by the design/install team, with the school being involved at every stage of resolution.
A further project is being considered at the school regarding the floodlights on our all-weather pitch and I will have no hesitation in working with UK Energy Watch once again.
I am now looking forward to reporting back to Governors on the savings achieved and a job well done!”
