    Customer challenge


    With energy prices set to rise year on year and a commitment to reduce carbon by 20% by 2020 we felt that it was time to start making changes

    The right lighting 

    With highly efficient optics and dimming possibilities, LED lighting was identified as the ideal replacement. As well as saving money, an LED solution would distribute light only where and when it was needed, minimising light spill and preserving the night sky.


    A total of 450 Mini Iridiums and 85 Philips Iridium 2s have been installed transforming the familiar sodium glow into bright white light. The scheme also incorporates 20 Philips Optifloods which replaced very large wall mounted high pressure sodium floodlights in the high street shopping hub of the community.


    The Philips solution perfectly blends the need of Dumfries and Galloway Council to reduce their carbon footprint and energy costs with Moffat’s objective of achieving a vast reduction in sky glow and thereby supporting a dark sky application.
