With sustainability being a major global concern, businesses

The J Brand mentality is to work with Green Technologies that, not only meet the Government's environmental requirements, but also offer clients a real and demonstrable return on investment.
An excellent example of this is the work that J Brand has carried out with power Voltage Power Optimisation® (VPO) technology, which reduces organisation's electricity consumption, costs and carbon emissions, whilst also protecting the electrical infrastructure from poor power quality and spikes.
By installing Photovoltaic (PV) on your farm buildings and
warehouses ensures you have a good 'financial harvest' for the next
Under the Governments Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme by installing PV panels on your buildings you will be paid each year for the generation of energy, with the payments inflated each year by the Retail Price Index (RPI) which is currently at 5.2% pa (August 2011). Once generated the electricity is free to use in your business, substantially reducing your expensive utility bills. The Government will even pay you to export any excess energy back to the national grid. This is an outstanding investment opportunity for farmers and other businesses.
J Brand, as an MCS approved installer, has become specialist in agricultural and commercial photovoltaic solutions. Each system is bespoke; tailored to the needs and facilities of each individual client. Through our connections with the farming community, J Brand has installed, sold and proposed large installations at multiple farming locations. Click here to see a sustainability case study.
It is often said that there is no point in trying to save energy until you have measured what energy you are using.
J Brand has a range of purpose built monitoring solutions for retrofit, new build and legacy electrical installation monitoring, which enables power usage to be monitored and managed.
These can be permanent fittings, or temporary portable metering solutions.
Low Energy and LED Lighting
J Brand work with major manufactures who offer a full range of low energy and LED lamps as a direct replacement for various standard lighting applications such as low energy and mains halogen down lights and Tungsten halogen flood lights.
J Brand can organise a lighting survey where we will provide a full detailed report on the existing lighting. Then, based on the location, the duration of operation and the output of the lighting we will recommend a direct low energy or LED replacement.
These new low energy lamps can be installed directly into the existing light fittings, thereby reducing the need for new light fittings to be installed, keeping material costs down to a minimum whilst offering savings of between 60-70% on annual electricity bills.
In addition to the annual savings on electricity bills due to the long life of the low energy and LED lamps, annual maintenance costs will also be greatly reduced.
Automated Lighting Controls
J Brand can reduce the cost of lighting by the replacement of traditional switches, with automated controls. We can offer a full range of PIR motion sensors, time lag switches and dusk till dawn sensors to remove the cost of wasted power in a range of areas. In WCs, basement corridors, even external rear fire escape emergency lighting and perimeter security lighting.
J Brand is fully compliant with the WEEE Regulations (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations). We are fully certified by the Environment Agency as Waste Carriers and Brokers. We will remove redundant equipment and either recycle or arrange disposable as appropriate.
