Western Health manages three public hospitals, Footscray Hospital, Sunshine Hospital and Williamstown Hospital, as well as a number of other community based services.

Through a very competitive tender process, Shine On was selected to provide a full LED lighting retrofit of the Sunshine Hospital. Western Health’s main objective was to reduce their carbon footprint.

After a thorough site assessment we proposed a selection of LED tubes, backlit and circular panels, and downlight alternatives to replace Sunshine Hospital’s old inefficient lighting. Following installation, they were able to save 68% on their lighting consumption which will deliver a massive ten year saving of over $2,300,000. What’s more, they have reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by 1,717.40 tonnes per annum!

We were exploring LED lighting technology to reduce our greenhouse emissions and progress our environmental sustainability/corporate social responsibility agenda so we decided to send out a tender.
Shine On really stood out during the tender process, especially their professionalism. We are really happy we were able to achieve a 68% reduction on our lighting energy consumption.” Catherine O'Shea, Sustainability Officer
