The Riverside Quay Car Park at
Southbank is a multi-level car park in the middle of one of Melbourne's
most prestigious addresses. It has a single level private car park
section and an 8-storey public car park for 560 car spaces, with a
total of 750x36W electromagnetically ballasted fluorescent lamps.
Leigh Phillips of LGP Electrical had
been working with the building owner on electrical maintenance and he took the
initiative to present options to reduce the owner's weekly spend on
energy for lighting.
Leigh investigated the savings other units could deliver but he
kept returning to Ilum-A-Lite's voltage controller Light Eco®
due to the brand's reliability, reputation and breadth of
installations in the marketplace. Leigh contacted us at ecoBright®
energy solutions to help him with the energy saving solutions
he could present to the owner's management team.
After an assessment we advised
that applying a voltage controller to the fluorescent
lamps in the carpark would reduce the owner's lighting energy spend
by a minimum of 25% - which we guaranteed in writing and he put
that to the owner's management team. His recommendations were accepted and Light Eco® was installed in both car parks. The
pictures below show the installation process at the Riverside
Quay car park - during a day's observation by ecoBright staff...we
tried not to get in Leigh's way!
