Finance Leasing

Upgrade to Led Lighting Today

LED Lighting is arguably the most significant development in lighting since the invention of the incandescent light bulb. This advanced technology offers lower energy bills and reduced maintenance, saving you money. But a cash investment is required to purchase this new technology. To overcome the investment hurdles, M-Light International Ltd offers an ingenious solution that delivers immediate savings, but without any upfront costs – finance leasing.

LED Lighting offers a unique opportunity to significantly reduce your energy consumption. Lighting accounts for up to 40% of a building’s electricity consumption. (1) Moving to LEDs from conventional light sources such as fluorescent, high intensity discharge and halogen, can achieve substantial cost savings. In fact, your lighting energy bill could typically be reduced by as much as 40 – 60%. Adding lighting controls can increase these savings even further.

Some businesses and organisations may not be able to make the capital investment to access these savings. For others, the priorities for capital investment may be geared towards business growth. But whatever the obstacles may be, there is now a solution – finance leasing.

Established lighting manufacturer M-Light International Ltd and expert finance provider, CF Capital plc, can offer personalised solutions so that any business can realise the benefits of switching LED lighting today by leasing – or renting – your lighting.

So no upfront costs and a raft of other benefits.

How Finance Leasing of led lighting works

SURVEY & DESIGN

M-Light International Ltd are experts in the field of lighting manufacturing and proposing the best lighting solution for you. Our experienced field engineers will visit your site to assess the existing installation and measure current lighting levels. They will also discuss your requirements in detail. We then carry out a full, professional design. Our team of qualified lighting design engineers will ensure that all proposals comply fully with the requirements of EN12464-1:2011, the SLL Code for Lighting and all best practice guidelines.

ANALYSIS

We carry out a Total Cost of Ownership analysis, comparing the existing installation with that proposed. Firstly, we analyse the quality and cost of the lighting. This will include usage hours, electricity tariffs, lamp replacement and other maintenance costs. As a result, we can project the annual savings and payback period achieved by changing to LED lighting. So, you can see how much money you will save!

PURCHASE OR LEASE

Following the design and analysis we will produce a full, written quotation for the new lighting and provide an explanation of what we are proposing. Once you are happy to proceed you can, if you prefer, purchase the lighting outright at the prices quoted. Alternatively, if you would prefer to lease the lighting, we will introduce you to finance lease specialists CF Capital plc. They will prepare a personalised illustration which will include the payment term and fixed monthly cost of rental.

INSTALLATION

Once you give the go ahead, we arrange delivery of the product. If you want to include installation in the leasing agreement, this can be included in the lease illustration. If you wish, we can recommend an electrical contractor to carry out the work. Once installed, you start making savings immediately. CF Capital will organise the lease payment terms.

MAINTENANCE

M-Light International Ltd operate to very high-quality control procedures. Very occasionally products may fail prematurely. We therefore offer complete peace of mind by providing a full warranty throughout the lease period, for up to 5 years (emergency lighting 2 years). We will replace or repair the luminaires completely free of charge.

TECHNOLOGY UPGRADE

At the end of the leasing agreement, you have the option to take advantage of the continual improvements in LED efficiency and upgrade to the latest technology, by arranging a further lease agreement. Consequently, this removes any worries of using redundant technology. Simply trade up to the latest, most energy efficient products available with continued full warranty.

IMPROVED, LONG LIFE LIGHTING

Trade up to LED lighting and comply with the latest legislation on lighting levels and quality. LEDs have extremely long life characteristics, so you can look forward to years of reliable, lowcost lighting.

SAVINGS PAY FOR LEASE
