M16 - Lights Off During Day Time

Implementation of this symbol means that the business/company is switching off all their business lights during the daytime. Save $ 1,905.10
A number of solutions are available in order to achieve this implementation. One is to install skylights where possible. Another way to lighten up without electricity is to paint internal walls white, move office spaces/workshops closer to windows, and install partition walls to prevent daylight from escaping into unused office areas. Whatever idea you can come up with, it is a good one if it works for you, as long as the main lighting is switched off during the daytime (including lighting in storage and archive areas). The symbol implementation allows the use of one overhead light fitting equipped with energy-efficient light globes. If you cannot meet the requirements described above due to a lack of window light or because of issues with partition positioning, you can always retrofit your existing ceiling fluorescent lights with energy-efficient fluorescent tubes. See fluorescent retrofit symbol No. 26. and therefore claiming No.26 implementation.


Example: 10 Double fluorescent tube light fittings = 2 X 0.036 kWh x 10 = 0.72 kWh switched off in the daytime for a duration of 8 hrs and switched on at night only, and off over the weekend in both situations the savings with affixing the small Light off sign equate to:
