Simon Bennett, Burnley Borough Council
As part of an energy efficiency programme the council identified that we needed to improve our existing lighting stock in the main buildings of our portfolio. We aimed to improve lighting levels but reduces our on-going energy and maintenance costs and equivalent Co2 emissions.
The Council is always keen to support local businesses and after competitive pricing we instructed Blazes to retrofit LED lighting into our first trial site at Padiham Leisure Centre. The new lighting has been a great success by enhancing the centres environment and by cutting energy costs and carbon emissions. The Council has since instructed Blazes to undergo similar works at a further 6 sites.
Throughout the numerous projects Michael and his team have been very accommodating, helpful and always on hand if we had any problems and suggested possible solutions as well as offering us advice on further energy saving measures we could implement. A real pleasure to work with and the installation teams were always friendly and caused minimal intrusion and in most cases completed outside of office opening hours causing zero disruption to day to day operations.
It is without hesitation that I would recommend you speak to the Blazes team. They will give you the solution you need at a very competitive price.
Andrew Pritchard, Facilities Engineer
Blazes Renewables have carried out 3 separate projects for us. The first was to replace existing High Bay Metal Halide lamps with LED to achieve a higher LUX level in a particularly sensitive work area. The second was to introduce LED lighting at low level providing individual light sources for specific machine operators and the third project was to provide localised lighting within a working area that could not be illuminated from an external source. All of these projects were customised to our requirements and each project successfully delivered. We are confident that Blazes Renewables are technically competent to provide lighting solutions for any of our future needs.

Blazes has carried out a number of projects at St Peters including the gymnasium, our dance studios and swimming pools. For each project they have prepared detailed proposals demonstrating cost savings, carbon savings and early Returns on our Investment. Their installation team have worked professionally, efficiently and ensured minimal disruption to our day to day operation. The improved quality of the LED lighting has been commented on by both staff and visitors whose time in St Peter’s has been enhanced by the LED experience.
