When Sustainable Lighting Solutions presented Round Ground Metals with a solution that would save the company more than $60,000 annually, it was just a matter of timing and planning to get the lighting replaced. Sustainable Lighting Solutions installed more than 238 fixtures, within two buildings interiors and exteriors. Sustainable Lighting Solutions secured a ComEd incentive that covered almost 70% of the cost. RGM is forecasted to save more than $62,000 in electricity costs alone.
The LED overhaul has been dramatic. Sustainable Lighting Solutions managed the small business incentives with ComEd and disposed of all of Kiser's old fluorescent tubes which allowed Kiser to manage its business. “Sustainable Lighting Solutions managed the project like we manage our customers,” Kiser says. “We want to do everything that we can to keep our customers focused on running their business, and Sustainable allowed us to do that.”
The lighting at Concentric AB’s manufacturing facility in Rockford, IL was similar to many other large spaces – either too bright or too dark, and certainly too expensive to power and maintain. Switching to a LED solution from SLS not only improved employees’ work environment, it saved the company close to $9k per month in energy and maintenance costs. Currently, Concentric is on track to save on average 750 kilowatt hours annually, which accounts for 1/8 of its energy consumption.
Faced with ever diminishing light levels and skyrocketing maintenance costs, Experian looked to Sustainable Lighting Solutions to offer a state of the art solution to their lighting needs. The existing 175 watt Metal Halide lamps were depreciating so quickly that relamping was required every two years . Sustainable Lighting Solutions offered ECO Quad Induction fixtures on a one-to-one replacement, which met all of Experian's project goals: Energy Reduction, Maintenance Reduction, Improved Lighting Levels, Improved Color, and Safety.
