LED Projects & Financing

Novel Energy Lighting works with larger clients on Lighting Projects (hotels, new builds, remodels, shops, offices, industrial, etc), and can provide tailored site surveys, quotations, financing (through partners below), and even installation services as required. We offer a smart financial solution for larger clients wishing to upgrade their existing lighting with energy efficient alternatives. Lighting Finance programmes allows clients to retrofit their facility with LED lighting (lamps, tubes, luminaires, controls and sensors etc) without any upfront capital expenditure. This solution is not only appropriate for capital constrained organisations (e.g. public entities, churches or charities) but also for businesses wishing to deploy scarce capital resources elsewhere.

A typical lighting loan has a 2 to 4 year term. The monthly loan repayments are covered by the electricity cost savings, making the scheme cost neutral to clients (often cash positive). Furthermore, the lamps, tubes, and fittings provided by Novel Energy Lighting are covered by robust multi-year manufacturer replacement warranties, thus minimising any risks for the client. We have a partnership with Lombard Capital (part of the RBS Group) for Low Energy financing, and can offer extremely favourable terms to mitigate the upfront cost of LED retrofit. Finance can also be provided via the Carbon Trust energy efficient financing scheme (delivered by Siemens Financial Services (SFS)), through Salix funding (for Public sector projects), or the new Green Deal. Novel Energy Lighting works with Lombard, SFS, Salix, or DECC to complete the finance application, making the process simple for the client.

The Loan-to-Own approach is generally appropriate for retrofits of facilities with more than 200 lamps or tubes. Novel Energy customises projects to meet client circumstances, providing tailored technical and commercial proposals based on site surveys, power rates and usage patterns. We can provide data-logging services to accurately measure your lighting usage. Our proposal can include installation as well as supply of high quality LED lighting. We will configure the retrofit to match (or improve upon) the lumens, lux, colour temperature, beam angle, and dimming functionality of your existing lighting inventory. There will also be an opportunity to review control options, e.g. install intelligent lighting control systems (occupancy/daylight sensors) to reduce electricity consumption.
