The roll-out of energy saving LED lights to dozens of NCP car parks is in full throttle, with 50,000 LEDs in place so far, it was announced today.

Described as one of Europe’s “largest” such projects, work began in January 2014 on phase one of a contract to put energy efficient lighting in more than 150 multi-storey car parks across the UK.

NCP’s CEO, Jo Cooper said: “We set out to reduce energy lighting bills, lower maintenance costs and offer improved lumen output to provide an enhanced customer experience.”

The firm expects to save more than £25 million on energy after the move, she said.

Installer Future Energy Solutions is funding the project in partnership with the UK Green Investment Bank.

Marcus Brodin, commercial director at Future Energy Solutions said of the 50,000 milestone: “We are immensely proud of this achievement which will generate energy savings of over 67% in the car parks that are being re-lamped.”

He told ELN the firm is currently supplying exterior lighting for private healthcare operator Spire and is to announce more lighting deals in the coming months.
