“An LED refit was far more cost-effective than replacing like-for-like fixtures” 



Acer Australia is a leading global ICT company, with a presence in over 160 countries. Specialising in desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, servers and smartphones, Acer Australia has offices, a major warehouse, distribution and workshop facility based in Sydney.


Acer Australia were looking for a long-term lighting solution to delivered the following outcomes:

  • Reduced light energy consumption across the warehouse, distribution centre and workshop area.
  • Improved light quality and lighting levels.
  • Reduce maintenance costs.
  • Costs savings across the business.


In 2018 Emerald Planet worked with one of our leading energy efficiency partners, Ecovantage, to fully upgradeAcer Australia’s warehouse, distribution centre and workshop facility. By replacing the existing 400W metal halide high bays with new Emerald Eye LED High Bays fitted with motion and lux sensors, Acer Australia reduced their warehouse lighting energy consumption by approximately 76 percent, saving an estimated $30K on lighting energy costs per year. The Emerald Eye’s programmable sensor enables additional energy-savings by automatically switching the lights off when a site is unoccupied and only reactivating if insufficient ambient light is present. Emerald Planet’s low-glare Ambassador LED panels were also installed in the workshop area, delivering even lux without glare, providing a comfortable working environment.
