We have a store in Inner West Sydney that has old fluorescent baton lights.

To save money on energy costs we're looking for quotes to change/upgrade to LED lighting.

We have 9 fittings with 2 lights in each = 18 and then 1 single at the rear of store - Total 19

Can you please provide total installed cost including parts/labour etc;

There won't be much saving on energy bill any way as your current tubes are 36W each and LED will be prety much the same !!!!
For money you spend on new lighthing you won't save nothing on energy bill for next 10 - 15 years. You'll spend $1000 on new lighting and most you can save on energy bill will be $5 per month !!! 😎

I disagree, the ballasts alone would be using heat and therefore is energy wasting alone. Probably not going to see the bill halved, but if they are running all the time you will notice a difference small difference
But if it's that much a quarter I'd be looking at what else is contributing to a high bill..

probably refrigeration which is unavoidable unfortunately - I'll get back to you guys soon after we discuss with owners
Hi Peter,

My name is Jeremy and I am the founder of Energy Incentive Program.

We specialise in commercial energy efficiency including LED lighting upgrades.

We were also featured on Better Homes and Gardens energy efficiency episode on 07/07/17

Battens are surface mounted and the fittings in your photo are troffers.

If they are the older style with starters, you can expect each fitting to consume approx 90w per hour of use.

We instal (pending site inspection) high efficiency panels and you could expect a saving of 60-70% from the lighting consumption of electricity, and can also discuss a very attractive solution to include the downlights.

We also have direct access to financial incentives to help subsidise the upfront investment to get the best quality and most efficient fittings.
Unless you want to upgrade completely to led panels. Much better

One is like a refurbishing kit for the lights you have currently, would use led tubes and a driver etc. needs a bit of re-wiring which is where the labour cost would be.

Panels are a complete unit which would replace the whole existing fitting. Annoying part is disposing of those fittings, but would need to sort the tubes to be disposed of so much of a muchness
I would hands down go with the panels. Bit more expensive as a fitting, but much nicer light output and overall appearance in my opinion.

Cheers mate appreciate it, bit clueless about this just had a read of Rob's comments
You née the right information, replace the fitting lights for LED big move you definitely get more long life and less power. You need to spend around $48-55 goo quality plus labor. LED lights is future for saving energy, never is the same compared with fluorescent light, for my understanding
About 150 per fitting fitted.
