Energy Certificate for the CentreEnergy Certificate for the Centre

The building currently has a DEC ‘C’ rating as outdoor lighting is metered. If this could improved it is expected that the rating would improve to ‘B’ or ‘A’. Investigations are being made to identify an appropriate outdoor low energy lighting system.

Simplicity is key. Complicated systems are difficult to maintain and operate which often reduces efficiency.
