Client had moved into the building 2 years prior. Amid expansion and building reorganization, they worked to get their manufacturing and warehousing in an optimal flow. Timing was right to consider a lighting upgrade.
RPG Solution: RPG performed an energy audit and applied for a rebate with National Grid. The project fell under the parameters for the small business program due to the use of mostly small tools and equipment beside the lighting. The project would call for all new LED highbay fixtures to replace T8 and metal halide fixtures. All low bay and office lighting would be upgraded to LED as well as exterior roadway, parking lot and building wallpack fixtures.
Results: Based on a Utility reviewed proposal, it was estimated that Source International would save 186,800 kwh and $27,000 annually. National Grid also provided a rebate of $74,720.00 toward the project.
"Remarkable is what I say about this lighting upgrade. We thought it was going to be a long, drawn out process- it wasn't. The crew was quick and efficient and worked around our traffic. Before we were replacing burned out lamps and ballasts all the time. Since we did this, there has not been even one failed light. We made a good decision to do this project and especially with RPG doing it. I certainly would be willing to talk to anyone who needs a reference."
