Lighting up Gloucestershire with Low Energy LEDs

Cheltenham businesses, The Bigger Printing Company and Ocip Energy, have teamed up to bring a little more light to Gloucestershire – and all in aid of the environment.

Online PR News – 01-July-2010 – – Renewable energy solutions provider, Ocip Energy, has supplied Bigger Printing with a 1.2 metre 20 Watt LED wall-washer light that now illuminates their building sign at Manchester Park. Ocip Energy will also replace Bigger Printing’s 250W floodlights with super energy efficient lights that work at just 12 Watts.

Bigger Printing’s director, Sebastian Stanley, comments: “Updating our building lights is just one of the many things we’re doing to be a more responsible company. We already use recyclable materials for our print, so I see this as the next step in doing our bit for the environment. This is the start of an ongoing project to help other businesses to be more environmentally conscious. I would like many more of our signage implementations to incorporate the use of LEDS and will be working actively to promote this.”

Ocip Energy’s diverse range of lighting solutions are used by all types of organisation to reduce their carbon footprint. Lighting options include bay lights, floodlights, streetlights and office lights, with installations in buildings such as offices, warehouses, museums, exhibition centres, transport hubs, hospitals and schools.

Ocip Energy’s director, Aidan Brown says: “Using energy saving lights isn’t just the right thing to do in terms of the environment, it’s also incredibly beneficial for any organisation that’s looking to cut costs and who isn’t these days? The difference in energy consumed between an LED and a standard light is dramatic, with savings of up to 75% - we’re not talking savings of a few pence, but potentially thousands of pounds, depending on your usage.

I am delighted that Sebastian and Bigger Printing have embraced the importance of LED lighting and look forward to working with them on future installations.”

Ocip Energy is also a faithful customer of The Bigger Printing Company and has used their large format print on a number of projects, including exhibition systems and Ocip’s own building signage. This is yet another example of Bigger Printing’s preferred partnership approach to working with customers.
