Redblue provided a turnkey LED lighting solution which helped our customer fulfill sustainability goals while also increasing light levels and delivering substantial financial savings.
The LED lighting upgrade involved retrofitting or replacing almost 1,000 light fixtures throughout the facility. As an entire project, energy usage from lighting was reduce 62.9%, saving more than $ 155,000 dollars on lighting over 5 years. Thanks to equipment savings and reductions in HVAC costs, the customer will realize over $ 240,000 dollars worth of cumulative 5 year savings. Best of all, the LED lighting upgrade includes a 10-year warranty and will pay for itself in under 16 months!
One of the biggest savings is being seen in a staging area where a 71.5% energy reduction was achieved. A total of 97 fixtures burning two T12 95-watt bulbs each were converted to LED using Redblue’s 60-watt LED retrofit kits. Light levels were doubled from 9-12 foot candles before to 22-25 foot candles afterwards thanks to LED.
