Switch to energy-efficient lighting

Replacing traditional light sources with LED is a good investment for both
energy consumption and the environment. Energy consumption can be reduced by up to 80%, depending on previous lighting. LED light sources have a significantly longer lifespan than traditional light sources, which means fewer replacements. They are completely flicker-free and give full light immediately, in addition they are free of mercury and other environmentally hazardous gases.

Phasing out inefficient light sources

In accordance with the EU directive, light bulbs, halogen and low-energy lamps have been phased out or will be gradually phased out and replaced with energy-efficient light sources in the form of LED light sources. Remaining halogen and low energy lamps are phased out step by step.
