Light as a Service: How UrbanVolt are taking manufacturers off the electricity grid
Show Notes

Embracing a sustainable business culture is becoming more important than ever to businesses for energy and cost savings. Companies could save a considerable amount of money every year by reducing their energy bills through improved efficiency. The manufacturing industry in particular is very hungry for energy, and lighting can account for up to 80% of the energy consumed in warehouses. How can these manufacturers improve their bottom line and accelerate their transition to a sustainable future? 

One company that has leveraged both innovation and technology to help companies reduce their carbon footprint is UrbanVolt. Operating globally, the ultimate goal of UrbanVolt is to take warehouses off the electricity grid by upgrading businesses to LED light. This cutting-edge technology has resulted in significantly lower operating costs for companies in addition to a positive impact on the environment.
