A Thetford woman is urging companies to look at ways they might be able to save energy and costs with their lighting.

Hannah Deeley has been based in the town for 10 years and has worked in the lighting industry for the past five years - first at a Thetford company that manufactured lightboxes and LED displays for retail environments, then moving to a lighting consultancy company.

She is now working at SaveMoneyCutCarbon in Bury St Edmunds, which aims to help homes and businesses reduce their energy and water bills.

Ms Deeley said: “A lot of businesses may not even consider energy saving as they will assume that they cannot afford to make the improvements.

“A wide range of businesses and organisations, from warehouses and factories to hotels, retail and in education can make massive savings with no upfront cost or risk.

“There are proven and new technologies that have a great commercial benefit, from Connected Lighting via Bluetooth devices to give the user optimum control and to ensure lighting is only used at the level it is needed to lighting can be used as a monitoring tool, tracking footfall for example in a retail environment.”
