New lighting upgrades for businesses announced

A new lighting upgrade scheme to help ACT businesses reduce their energy consumption and save money on electricity bills was announced on Tuesday 24th January 2017. Energy efficient lighting upgrades can save up to 60% of business lighting energy bills. Lighting makes up about half the total electricity bill for general retail outlets, a quarter of the total bill for hairdressers and 14% for restaurants.
