NHSGGC is forging ahead with an ambitious LED external lighting programme on its Gartnavel site, which will save both money and the environment.
By introducing the latest technology in LED streetlights, NHSGGC expects to save around £5,000 per year on electricity and maintenance, and cut back on harmful Co2. The plan includes replacing around 100 lights on the hospital campus car parking and road areas.
Allan Lamb, Energy Manager said: "This is a win-win for everyone. As well as saving a significant amount of money year-on-year, we will also save on maintenance as these new LED fittings will last in excess of 100,000 hrs and may only need to be replaced every 12 years, as opposed to replacing lamps every two years for the existing ones.
“The lights also include the latest photocells that bring the lights on automatically based on the external lighting conditions.”
As a result of the works, some car parks will need to be closed on a temporary basis:
Allan added: “We will do our best to minimise disruption to patients, visitors and staff during the refurbishment period and would ask for people to be patient while we make these vital improvements.”
