Mumbles Cricket Scorebox

We installed a complete lighting system for their scorebox using our 35W Controller and thirteen 1W exterior uplights. The purpose is a lighting feature visible from the clubhouse and giving sponsors greater exposure.

Fitting of 13 x 1 watt lights (Starter kit B + 9 additional 1 watt lamps).

Calculation of energy consumption – assuming lights are on from 6 pm until 12 pm each day (6 hours) / 365 days per year.
Assumes household electricity cost of 17p per KW/ hour.

As a result, 13 x 1 watt system = £ 9.00 per year compared to £ 955 per year for conventional 240 volt system using 13 x 50 watt halogen bulbs.

Customer Comments

Comments
"After our council switched to directional LED street lighting we noticed all the light into the outside of our garden and house was lost.
We were concerned about safe approach and security so we installed this starter kit from £395.
What a difference this made plus easy to install and comes on automatically. "

Customer comments
"This project transformed our villa into a night time piece of art. We now welcome guests to sit outside and enjoy.
I installed the system by myself and avoided all the normal cost and disturbance of laying armoured cable with 210 volt systems.
The security benefit is huge, when we live away the system comes on automatically with no worry about running costs.
I plan to add additional lamps to fill up my controller capacity."

Using 17 p per KW / hour the system cost just £ 7.61 per year in electricity to run rather than £587 / year for 5 x 50 watt 240 watt halogen lamps.

Customer Comments
“This starter kit E and one extra spike light uses just 11 watt of energy, it took us just three hours to install the whole system including a new outside socket for the controller.
It has transformed our garden at night, we intend to add more lamps in the next months. We never expected to see a professional, high quality, integrated outdoor lighting system for this price.”

Langland, Swansea.

First part of project to light up front of house – side building and a tree with shrubs area. This gives a balance to the first step of lighting up a whole front of house garden and parking area.

1 x 3 watt spike + 3 x 1 watt up lights

Energy consumption - assuming lights are on from 6 pm until 12 pm each day (6 hours) / 365 days per year.

2 x 1watt plus 2 x 2watt system = £ 4.15 / year rather than £ 440 per year for conventional 240 volt system using halogen bulbs.

Customer Comments
"Our whole area required a designed lighting plan. The company designed a scheme and we started with Starter Kit G which has delivered a beautiful balanced lighting scheme to the front of house.

Subtle and not overpowering soft warm white lighting.

We will also add other lamps to the system including more spike lights and Garden pole lights ( which the company says are pending)over the next two months. It was easy to install and the quality of the lamps are clearly professional architectural grade. As a result, we are very happy and will recommend this to anyone who appreciates their house and garden. What a difference this system has made already."
