Leading British manufacturer of motorhomes and caravans, Bailey of Bristol, has completed the installation of energy-efficient LED lighting throughout its Liberty Lane production facility.
Bailey said that the investment is part of a comprehensive initiative to cut down on the overall consumption of power, which will be part of the program for a transition to a 100% renewable energy source starting in October 2022 and onwards, according to Camping Trade World.
Bailey Managing Director Nick Howard said that the introduction of their internal program for energy conservation is a step to help them reach their social and sustainability goals.
He added that in addition to practical improvements like installing modern LED lighting technology, they are seeking to further instruct their staff on reducing the amount of energy they use as one of the positive steps they are taking to safeguard the environment soon.
In addition to the obvious environmental advantages of the new lighting system, it will require 70% less energy than the previous system, which could result in substantial savings in the business’s financials at a time when energy costs are rising.
In addition to taking measures to cut down on energy consumption, Bailey is also looking to increase the amount of energy it generates by increasing its current solar power sources in the coming twelve months.
As of now, Bailey has one solar panel array installed in South Liberty Lane, installed in 2015 on the structure that is currently home to the Product Development Centre.
It is comprised of more than nine hundred individual panels capable of producing more than 200 Kilowatts of power through using South Bristol sunshine.
