One of the UK’s leading LED lighting specialists, Hilclare, has delivered a lighting refit at a host of primary schools and leisure centres in the Scottish Highlands resulting in reduced energy consumption and significant savings. Lighting specialists Hilclare were brought in by Highland Council to install new lighting in Dornoch Primary School, Grantown Primary School, Deshar Primary School, Ullapool Primary and High School and Averon and Loch Broom Leisure Centres.

Colin Gray at Highland Council, said:

Spokesperson on behalf of the school
“We are proud to have been commissioned for this project. Bringing schools up to date with the latest lighting technologies is a delicate balancing act between funding and classroom closure to facilitate low-impact installation. The installation took just over four weeks and was conducted during the summer period to ensure minimum disruption. It’s anticipated that the payback on investment will be in just four years, and by specifying products with up to a five-year guarantee, further savings via a maintenance free system will also be enjoyed.”
