Brits will be pulling into energy efficient car parks next year as a multi-million pound pot of cash to fund new lighting systems was announced today.The Government is giving national off-street parking firm NCP a £10million guarantee for installing energy saving lighting equipment at 149 of its 500-odd sites.Switching to LED lights is expected to cut the sites’ energy use by 60%, according to the Treasury’s National Infrastructure Plan 2013.Jo Cooper, CEO of NCP said:“This has a big impact operationally and financially. Most importantly of all the car parks will be fully lit and energy efficient, improving the sites for all our customers and helping us achieve our environmental goals. We look forward to addressing other energy efficiency areas where there are tangible wins for NCP moving forwards.”She added the firm had been looking for a partner in the energy contracting market for a “wholesale upgrade” of its lighting and it was pleased to get an “off-balance sheet” deal which didn’t need up-front investment.
