Preston firm reduces lighting bills by 74%

Preston-based cutter grinding company Techni Grind trimmed more than £7,000 from its energy bills after teaming up with Blackpool-based UK Energy Watch.

The energy consultancy undertook an on-site audit and recommended LED lighting, sourced the operating lease and oversaw the project plan and installation.

On completion, Techni Grind’s annual lighting costs reduced from £9,886.96 to £2,532.85, resulting in annual savings of £7,354.11. Monthly energy costs were £4,600 and then decreased to £4,000 following the LED lighting being installed.

Ashley Bullock, director at UK Energy Watch, said: "As a successful business, Techni Grind knows how important it is to improve their sustainability, whilst at the same time saving money wherever possible. We often save businesses thousands of pounds a year, but to help the team save such a huge amount of money was extremely rewarding."
