Helping The Planet – LED Sensor Lights

June 22, 2021 by Kennards Self Storage

We are all trying to do our bit to keep the planet healthy. This is to allow future generations to be able to live and enjoy the planet just as we have. We are seeing significant lifts in solar panels on private residences and commercial buildings, large wind turbines as well as hydro schemes. There are continuous improvements in more environmentally friendly energy sources. Not only are we helping the planet for the future but by having power generating and electricity consumption reductions – we are allowing ourselves to operate more efficiently.
At Kennards Self Storage we continue to look at efficiencies to reduce our electricity consumption. This started with timers years ago and today we have added LED sensor lights at many of our storage centres. This involves changing the existing lights to be more efficient and reduce usage as well as new centres having almost no light switches – all lights are LED sensors.
As a business we bring “space for change” solutions to our self storage customers and now we are also looking to bring “space for change” to the way we use electricity. We have seen a considerable drop in our consumption of up to 40% at our self storage centres using LED sensor lights.
We have trialled various options at our self storage centres and have tweaked the sensitivity; how long the lights are on bright and how long they are on dim. We believe we are now at the ideal light settings for our customers to be able to operate well while also seeing further reductions in electricity consumption.
Our new self storage centres at Kennards Wairau Valley (Auckland), Kennards Truganina (Melbourne), Kennards Southport (Gold Coast) and Kennards Baringa (Sunshine Coast) are all set up with the new LED sensor lights.
As a self storage business that cares for our customers, we also continue to care about our impact on the environment.
