PINNACLE GROUP, a leading national facilities management (FM) provider, is proud to be working with seven schools in Swindon to reduce energy consumption by an estimated 60% – 80% per annum by switching to LED lightbulbs.
The energy efficient lighting replacement initiative is part of Pinnacle’s commitment to improve sustainability and deliver long term value for the school buildings managed by its local FM team.
So far, over 6,000 light fittings have been replaced with state-of-the-art LED lighting as part of this energy saving project. Working with lighting specialists WILA, who have partnered with Pinnacle to install the LED bulbs in the schools over the past six months, it is predicted that around 260 tonnes of CO2 will be saved every year across the seven schools.
Furthermore, based on the energy consumption savings and the capital cost of replacing the fittings, it is estimated that the project would have paid for itself in under four years. The schools that have benefited from the project include Abbey Park School, Red Oaks School, Uplands School, Brimble Hill School, Nova Hreod School, Orchid Vale School and Moredon School – all of which are primary, secondary, or Special Educational Needs (SEN) schools.
Pinnacle is a leading FM provider for the education sector and is currently serving 220 primary and secondary schools, academies and universities. Pinnacle plans to roll out similar projects, in the near future, to significantly reduce energy consumption across a wide range of buildings and facilities. This forms part of Pinnacle’s recently launched ESG Framework which has been developed to make a positive difference to the communities Pinnacle supports.
