On november 23, Saled replaced all the conventional lighting at Salvation Army Leeuwarden by durable LED lighting. This will result in great savings on both energy costs and CO2 emissions.
Previously, Saled converted the lighting at other locations of the Salvation Army. Due to the positive experience, the Salvation Army decided to invest in new lighting for the Leeuwarden location. The conventional lighting consisted mainly of fluorescent tubes, downlighters and halogen spot lamps. These were all replaced with LED tubes, LED downlighters and LED spot lights.
The Salvation Army will save an impressive 8211 kWh per year. Due to these savings the investment will be earned back within 3.3 years. A positive contribution to the environment is made by reducing the CO2 emission by 4647 kg per year
