The first Blog attempt - a farmers wife ! We are known for talking - not so sure about the writing -but here we go - we will tell it how we see it.
Farm Lighting is a Kerry based on-farm business. Set up by myself and my husband, the business was born out of a necessity to address three issues on our farm; cost, safety and security. The old halogen and fluorescent lighting were expensive to run and some areas on the farm were very poorly lit, leading to potential safety issues and compromised security. We had to source lighting that would cut costs and that were cheap to run. The answer was LED lighting. LED lights are far ahead of halogen and metal halide in terms of cost. For example a 10 Watt LED Floodlight is equivalent to a 100W Halogen – that’s a 90% saving straight away. Because the LEDs produce excellent light at low watts we were happy to install more lights around the farm. Visibility and hence safety while working in the evening, is very much improved. Unfortunately security has also become a big issue on farms and in rural areas and there is added comfort in having yards lit up. We operate ours on dusk to dawn sensors where the yard flood lights come on in the evening and automatically switch off in the morning. The 10kw Flood costs us less than 2 cent per night to run. Cheap Cheap.
So that's my first post - I will get into this ;} - maybe!
