Located in Sydney's CBD, Hyde Park Towers achieved large power reductions by replacing car park fluorestent light with T8-T5 adaptors, replacing fire Stair lighting with motion sensor LEDs and replacing Foyer down-lights with LED's. Savings in energy bills paid off the cost of these replacements within 6 months.

Case Study: Common Area Lighting

Hyde Park Towers has reduced its total energy consumption by 22% through lighting upgrades in the fire stairs, carpark and common area foyers.
