Efficient lighting solutions – Jurys Doyle Hotel
The lighting project
The Doyle Collection (Formerly Jurys Hotel Group) is one of the largest and busiest Hotel Chains in Ireland and the UK. In the Cork facility, areas of the hotel are fully lit for 20 hours a day. The Cork Hotel decided to use Save It Easy® to upgrade 740 lamps to low energy lighting.
After a full audit of lighting at the Cork Hotel a proposal was submitted to outline savings available. On lighting alone 40% savings was calculated. In February 2009, based on the audits findings over 740 lamps were converted with no disruption to the every day workings of the hotel, and installation was completed within a week.
As a result of installing the Save It Easy® units, annual energy cost saving of €16,900 and CO2 emissions savings of 49 tones have been made. This installation was in several areas including Car Park and offices with 40% savings.
Project Payback and Comments
Including annual maintenance cost and product savings -: 7.8 months.
“After only one month, your Save It Easy® installation has reduced our consumption by over 1000 watts. The lighting in the Car Park has greatly improved while our lighting costs for that area have reduced significantly due to the large hours of usage.” Scott Barclay- Maintenance Manager Jurys Cork.
