Switch to LEDs (LED lighting systems)
Our GlenFarrow engineers are able to design, supply and install LED lighting systems for commercial buildings – helping you to reduce your energy bills.
Benefits of LED systems:
- Highly efficient
LEDs generally consume very low amounts of power, making them highly efficient an a great way of keeping your energy costs low.

LED bulbs have various beam angles, making them a great solution for only illuminating specific areas. Also, less energy will be wasted on lighting up areas that do not require light.
Sustainable heating (biomass)
Converting your commercial heating system to biomass could help you see huge savings for your business.
Utilise waste wood:
Biomass is a great way of disposing your waste wood and utilising it for fuel. This way, you can cut down on fuel costs and eliminate removal and/or recycling costs for the waste wood.
Drastically cheaper fuel than gas, oil, LPG and/or electric:
Wood fuel is usually much cheaper than the cost of gas, oil or electric – especially if you have a wood business or produce a lot of waste wood.
Second hand boilers – get RHI payments for your heating:
Although the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) has ended, it is still possible to receive payments with second hand biomass boiler accredited to the RHI by benefitting from the remainder of the boiler’s RHI tariff.
