Case Study: Wigan Car Park


Wigan Council Energy Management has halved energy bills and CO2 emissions at one of their busiest car parks by installing award-winning LED lighting. The new light fittings installed by MHA Lighting at Water Street Multi Storey Car Park use 45% less energy than the pre- existing system.


MHA provided a powerful solution to replace the existing 230 (70w) sodium fittings (84w with ballast) with their


Benefits of LEDs


• Efficiency: energy savings of up to 80% with intelligent controls • Lifetime: useful lifetime of 60,000 hours – 14 years at 12 hours use per day • Zero maintenance: reducing routine maintenance costs and disruption • Cool light: radiate very little heat • Shock resistance: robust design making it difficult to damage


• Toxicity: contains no mercury, eliminating disposal costs (Restriction of Hazardous Substances complaint)


energy efficient LB30 fitting, which is just 45w inclusive of ballast.


These fittings are designed and constructed to operate for 60,000 hours maintenance free (seven years at 24 hours a day) saving the council a further £1,065 per annum in annual maintenance costs.


The use of light sensor control will also save the council more than 50% on their energy bills. At the


same time, the light levels and light uniformity within the multi-storey car park have been improved, which will enhance customer experience and security at the site.


About MHA Lighting: MHA Lighting is an award-winning lighting manufacturer based in Greater Manchester. It is the only LED manufacturer to shine light sideways into encapsulation avoiding direct contact with the eye and providing a safe and efficient light output. They also use acrylic rods to amplify and control the light output, reducing the number of LEDs required. This means they can use high power LEDs, draw less current and have no need to diffuse the output. Their patented lighting technology uses two-thirds of the energy of other LED competitors.
