Turn Off the Lights!

I live near to IOM College (UCM). At night there are - I would estimate 20/30 Security Lights on all night (?). I appreciate that these are a deterrent against Vandalism/Burglary. The running of these lights obviously means that there is a cost!

Would it be financially beneficial to fit PIR (Passive Infrared) detectors so that the lights only operated when movement was detected?

I assume all Dept of Education & Children properties (and maybe more Government-owned buildings) are similarly lit.....fitting PIR Detectors, will obviously reduce the Electricity being used.

I would further suggest that PIR Detectors are incorporated into the external lighting systems of any New, or Refurbished Government buildings in the future.

Why the contribution is important

I feel my idea is important as it would reduce the amount of Electricity being used, thus making a SAVING!
