Thorn Energy Partnership (TEP) training supports successful roll out of lighting at carpet factory

Electrical engineering company, Fully Wired, joined the Thorn Energy Partnership (TEP) in January 2013 and as a direct result, secured a new contract and successfully implemented an energy efficient lighting scheme with Westex Carpets.

James Colam-Ainsworth, Co-Director at Fully Wired, explains: “We joined the Thorn Energy Partnership because we’re committed to helping our customers achieve energy and cost savings, and wanted to ensure our knowledge is at the very forefront of developments in these areas. The move paid off because the credibility and training we received as a TEP Partner helped us to win the contract to refurbish the high bay lighting at the Westex Carpets factory.

“My experience with TEP so far has been very useful as we have gained access to training, tools and resources. The ecoCALC and energyCalc software in particular have improved my knowledge of energy efficiency.

“Thanks to the TEP, I’m now fully aware of what products are most suitable for the various applications. I also have full confidence in the design process and in TEP’s continued support to help us win more contracts in the future.”

Simon Walker, Director at Westex Carpets says: “The lighting installation at Westex Carpets has improved light levels throughout the site and in turn saved the company money while reducing CO2 emissions. Fully Wired and the TEP worked well together to ensure the project was completed on time and budget.”
