Harrogate car park installed with new energy-efficient lighting

Springfield Car Park, Harrogate Convention Centre’s underground car park, has been fitted with new, energy-efficient lighting.


Harrogate Borough Council commissioned Energy Oasis to install the intelligent LED lighting in the ‘red zone’ of the car park, reducing carbon, electrical load and cost.


The new lighting is 69.7% more efficient, saving around 70,000 kWh a year - that’s a massive annual reduction of 20.6 tonnes of carbon, contributing to the District’s Net Zero target.


As well as reducing running costs for the Council, the new lighting has also improved health and safety in the car park, operating on a sensor system and increasing the light level from 22.5 Lux to 431 Lux.
