With a staff of almost 3000, and with a catchment area of one-quarter of Victoria, Bendigo Health is one of the state's major health service providers.
A 672 bed multi-disciplinary service, Bendigo Health incorporates medical, surgical, rehabilitation, psychiatric care, aged care, ambulatory and community services. Liz Haywood is a Project Engineer at Bendigo Health Hospital in Bendigo, Victoria.
Ms Haywood called Ilum-a-lite to see if we could provide her with options on how to reduce the energy used in lighting at Bendigo Hospital. The Hospital used a combination of the Light Eco® and Save-It-Easy® solutions and in conjunction with delamping, made significant savings in all areas - see the
Bendigo Case Study
for more information.
The energy savings calculated include savings on: delamping, use
of latest technology lower wattage electronic lamps for similar
lumen output and the energy saved by using the magnetic ballast
only as a connecting device within the luminaire's circuit. Whilst the project continues to progress, Ms Haywood was able to demonstrate the Engineering department's commitment to energy savings during the annual Christmas appeal and has been an enthusiastic supporter of our energy saving products ever since!
