Vincent and Carmel O’Shea, who run a dairy farm near Killarney, Co Kerry, stood back and took a proper look at the cost of lighting their farm. They discovered that they were still using many halogen and fluorescent lights, which was costing them dearly; with running cost savings of over 90 per cent on halogen and 60 per cent on fluorescent the obvious answer was to replace all lights with LED.
An entrepreneurial idea was born and today the O’Shea couple are running a very successful on-line business, FarmLighting.ie, which specialises in supplying LED lighting to the agricultural and business sectors.
On the FarmLighting.ie website the O’Shea’s have put together a really strong offering of weather suitable IP65 rated products. Quality is central to the lights on offer – all products are branded and fully guaranteed.
FarmLighting.ie are stockists of Ansell and Red Arrow floodlights and LED tubes. These floodlights come with, or without, motion sensors and are ideal yard and security lights. Typically, a 10w Floodlight costs less than 1.5 cent to run for a full eight hours.
On the machinery side, Wesem is a European manufacturer of agricultural machinery and off road lighting. Wesem products are manufactured to give optimum light and withstand really harsh conditions – perfect for Ireland! These worklights allow for super field visibility at night.
Also available are signal lights and beacons meaning that FarmLighting.ie offers a full range of LED lighting for all farm machinery and trailers.
As well as saving costs, LED lighting offers many other benefits. As well as a long life with no heat emitted, they come on instantly – no flickering while you wait at a shed door – and these lights don’t fade over time.
