OK lighting types – let me tell you a little about chiropteric behaviour. First of all, contrary to popular opinion, we bats aren’t blind. So we won’t feed or roost if you put a bloody great luminaire on our patch. Secondly, if you disturb us, you’ll be had up under the Wildlife and Countryside Acts.
No money to bring down those energy bills? Don’t worry, let your suppliers pay for the lighting upgrade and take a share of the running cost savings. Andrew Brister visits a self-financing retrofit project
