We have a project on Installing motion sensors to cut costs to a property.
This calculation is based on the following factors:
- Electricity price of 10 pence per KW unit.
- 36 x 28watt 2D fittings
- 10 x 50watt low voltage fittings
- 3 x 60w HQI fittings (external)
If the existing internal light fittings are on 24hrs a day and the external are on an average 12hours a night the costings are the following:
36 x 28w 2D light fittings = 1008w. 1008w x 24hrs = 24192watts per day (24kw)
24kw x 365 days = 8760kw per year.
8760kw x 10pence = £876 per year
10 x 50w = 500w. 500w x 24hrs = 12000watts per day (12kw)
12kw x 365 days = 4380kw per year
4380kw x 10pence = £438 per year
3 x 60w = 180w. 180w x 12hrs (dusk to dawn sensors) = 2160watts per night (2.1kw)
2.1 x 365 nights = 766kw per year
766kw x 10 pence = £76 per year
This equates to about 47,000 kg’s of CO2 per year.
If motion sensors are to be installed where required, then the average time the lights are on is about 4 hours a day.
36 x 28w = 1008w. 1008w x 4hrs = 4032watts per day (4kw)
4kw x 365 days = 1460kw per year.
1460kw x 10pence = £146 per year
10 x 50w = 500w. 500w x 4hrs = 2000watts per day (2kw)
2kw x 365 days = 730kw per year
730kw x 10pence = £73 per year
The external lights would stay as they are.
Projected savings of about £1000 per annum
This would produce about 8000 kg’s of CO2 per year. Saving a massive 39,000 kg,s of CO2.
