Star of the Sea College is an independent, Catholic, day school for girls, located in Brighton Melbourne.

Shine On was approached to assess the school’s lighting and provide an LED lighting retrofit solution. The main objective was to improve the quality of light and create brighter and warmer learning environments for the students. The college was also interested in lowering energy consumption and maintenance costs, and the OH&S implications of replacing blown bulbs.

Shine On upgraded the old inefficient light fittings with Shine On LED tubes, highbays, backlight panels and globes. Star of the Sea upgraded their west wing, hall and gym and as a result, the business was able to save 66% on their lighting consumption. This impressive saving will deliver a ten year energy cost saving of over $334,113.

“My experience with Shine On was a breeze; the whole process went smoothly with no distractions. They were in-and-out in no time without any hassle and completed the retrofit during school holidays, which worked really well for us.” Rod Quan, Maintenance
