Since 1839, Elders has been an integral part of Australia’s rural business landscape. From finance, banking, and real estate services to wool, grain and livestock trading, Elders provides innovative services to those in the agricultural industry.
Like many South Australian businesses, Elders experienced a significant increase in their electricity costs when their original energy contract expired. In order to safeguard themselves from the higher cost of electricity, Elders sought ways to streamline their power usage without compromising the operation of their sites or having to fund cumbersome projects.
Elders engaged LEDified to explore the cost benefit of implementing LED solutions as opposed to traditional lighting across nineteen of its sites. Elders successfully reduced their lighting costs by an average of 70% and with LEDified’s assistance, were able to offset a significant portion of their LED upgrade by taking advantage of the South Australian REES scheme. This government incentive enabled Elders to complete lighting upgrades with minimal financial outlay. From office, showroom to warehouse, Elders now enjoys a much improved and unparalleled lighting experience for its staff and customers for generations to come.
“LEDified has worked with Elders in upgrading a number of our SA branches to LED lighting. We appreciate their professional approach, disciplined process from quote to install. Given the increase in energy cost, coordination of upgrades to LED will reduce our energy consumption!” – Violeta Gibbons (Elders)
