Are you spending £100 per year on kitchen lighting?

If you have 10 halogen downlighters in your kitchen you could be spending over £100 per year on electricity.  LED lighting offers an 85% reduction on energy usage.  Gone are the days when LEDs produced an unpleasant blueish light – they are now available in Warm White tones and are good replacements for halogens.  They also last much longer – over 20 years – so you won’t be forever replacing lights that have popped.  LEDs are more expensive, but they’ll pay back in less than 2 years.  MHSG is subsidising LEDs to encourage local residents to replace their electricity-guzzling halogens.
