Soccarena is a Durham based football complex with 8 state of the art floodlit indoor 6-a-side pitches. Teams from all over the North East, whether they are professional or not, use the facilities.

Having undertaken their activities under old ‘yellow’ lights for many years, the company decided that a change was needed. We installed an LED light solution that transformed the lighting into ‘daylight’ conditions whilst saving energy costs and reducing carbon emissions. Soccarena opted to fund the lights through our low interest finance service, allowing them to invest their capital into other areas of their business.

Administration Manager, Richard Rodden, says “Ecusol were very professional from design to install of the LED lighting, the light levels are fantastic and we can now switch lights on and off as much as we want. Most importantly however, the energy savings were more than we expected with our energy costs more than halved”.

Savings and benefits of the LED light solution:

  • Reduced electricity consumption on lighting by 76%
  • £20,678.00 per annum saved in electricity costs
  • 101 tonnes of CO2 saved per annum
  • £2,814.00 saved in maintenance costs per annum
  • Payback period less than 11 months


Following the smooth and professional installation of the LED solution we were then invited to review Soccarena’s utility contracts and were able to source the best suppliers, further reducing their costs for both their electricity and gas. Following the seamless changeover of suppliers and our proactive management of their utilities, Soccarena have now dealt with us exclusively for several years.
