Brokenwood Wines were looking for a solution to reduce energy usage and operational costs across the business. Following a recommendation they engaged Shine On to complete an assessment of their site.

The project

After completing a full site assessment Shine On provided a comprehensive proposal outlining the savings that would be achieved through an upgrade to LED lighting. Shine On were engaged to upgrade the old lighting in the wine production areas.


The results are outstanding! With a 77% reduction in their energy usage and costs and a payback period of less than 18 months, the customer is understandably very happy. Brokenwood Wines following a LED upgrade with Shine On Brokenwood Wines following a LED upgrade with Shine On

We were recommended to enlist Shine On, and after an initial site assessment, they were able to prepare a business case that offered significant reductions in both energy use as well as operational costs. We found the team at Shine On to be professional and knowledgeable and we are very happy with the results!
