A bright idea helps Aurivo Co-op cut its carbon footprint


In 2018 ESB Energy Business solutions partnered with Aurivo Group, a multipurpose cooperative with interests across a variety of businesses, including the Homeland Stores and Garden Centres retail chain, dairy production and feed mill.

Seeking ways to reduce energy and maintenance costs, as well as improve the employee and shopper experience, the Aurivo Cooperative group tasked ESB Energy with delivering a lighting retrofit across 30 Homeland stores, as well as Aurivo's dairy plant and feed mill.

The Solution

Following an energy audit and consultation with Aurivo's team, ESB Energy proposed funding for a Lighting as a Services (LaaS) solution. As one of the fastest ways to deliver significant energy savings, LaaS offers large energy users a way to avail of the latest lighting technology, without assuming the risks associated with an upfront investment.

Using a subscription model, Aurivo were able to realise immediate savings allowing them to offset project costs.
