Testimonials

We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a Specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing Lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.
