Chameleon LED Lighting Solutions

Save energy and reduce your lighting costs…

Case Study
Car park lighting – installation of Chameleon LED lights

Problem
To improve lighting in underground car park. Lighting currently used is halogen globes and the company is requesting to save costs, reduce energy consumption and the frequency of service and maintenance required for these lights also.

Scope of Works
To install LED tubes as a direct replacement to the fluorescent tubes currently in place. To remove 232 x 36w tubes from 116 existing twin fluoro fittings. The project consists of opening up the fittings, bypassing the ballast and starter and re-assembling the fitting. Installing 232 LED tubes with a microwave sensor will reduce the lights to 30% brightness after no motion is detected (integrated microwave sensor instantly turns the light to full power mode once a presence is detected in the area). Furthermore, removing 117 x 36w tubes from one side of the existing emergency battens and fitting a new tube with a microwave sensor will again reduce the lights to 30% brightness after no motion is detection. Only one side can be done, as the other side must remain as a fluoro tube so the emergency light will operate correctly. Replace lighting in store room to LEDs (a premium LED replacement will last 20,000 hours). Supply, wire and install 5 x replacement LED globes to the store room area on level 6. Supply, wire and install motion detector controls for the above lights and remove the key switch control.

“Did you know lighting can make up to 80% of your total electricity bill?”

Outcome and Benefits
LED tube change over to car park to reduce energy consumption by up to 90% and CO2 emission by 200.3 tonnes p.a. A financial cost saving for the company of $160,000 by Year 5 and a maintenance and electrical saving for the company of $35,438 by Year 5; significant savings. Furthermore, a benefit of an annual electrical consumption reduction from 160,000 kWh to 20,000 kWh.

“On average, most companies will save over 50% on their overall lighting cost.”

Conclusion and Recommendations
Replace all 236 T8 Fluoro Tube 1200mm lamps/lights (double and single) with Chameleon 10 Chip lamps/lights in the car park. The Chameleon provides light when it is needed. It is designed for use in fire stairs, car parks and service corridors. It has a generous integrated heat sink to maximise LED performance supporting a life span of 50,000 hours. It also has a keyed lock for fast & easy removal of fixture, without requiring power to be isolated if required. Data logging of completed installations has demonstrated use of these areas of less than 3%, enabling industry leading energy saving results.

“Every kilowatt per hour saved in lighting can help save greenhouse gas emissions.”

LED Lighting Panels

T-Bar office lighting is the most common type of office lighting. As a Property Manager, you would have come across these types of fittings, however these days with electricity prices on the rise, they are an expensive option to run and electrical maintenance costs can get expensive as these fittings age. A ten year old office building with 100 twin T-Bar Fluorescent fittings could spend up to $6,080 per year on running costs and up to $2,180 per year on maintenance.

There is a simple solution, most office T-Bar lighting can be changed over to a Retrofit LED Panel. It’s a simple process, usually fitting in the exact same spot without any changes to the ceiling. LED panels use less than half the power of a twin fluorescent fitting and there is no maintenance. If we use the above example; a ten year old office building with 100 LED Retrofit panels could spend up to $2,500 per year on running costs and $0.00 per year on maintenance. LED Retrofit panels can be supplied and installed for less than $200 each. They come in different sizes to suit the existing T-Bar ceiling configuration. These savings speak for themselves.
