An energy-efficient lighting upgrade is a smart decision for every industry. It can save you 40-70% on reduced energy consumption as well as lower operations and maintenance costs.
Why is WESCO Energy Solutions the right partner for your project? We perform more than 2,300 LED lighting retrofit projects each year. To say that we are experienced is an understatement, and we use that experience to drive down cost and energy use. We are often able to reduce the number of fixtures in space by up to 60% while increasing the light output.
The reduction in lighting load alone can be up to 50% or more. Advanced control strategies can often reduce consumption an additional 40% or more. In addition, further cost savings can be achieved by reducing the number of fixtures.
With the use of rebates and proper energy conservation measure selection, ROI can be brought down to under two years. Cash flow is usually positive immediately upon project completion.
New, longer-life products require less periodic maintenance and extend the time between relamp/retrofit expenses. Lighting controls can track occupancy rates and times to improve savings on cleaning and housekeeping costs.
Improving light levels in low light and hazardous areas can decrease the potential for accidents and create safer work environments for customers and staff.
By ensuring that light levels and color temperatures are adequate and appropriate to the task being performed, LED lighting has been shown to improve employee productivity. It’s even possible to accommodate personal employee preference with individual light levels and color adjustments.
Retrofits are often compatible with BACnet and Niagara AX protocol, and many lighting control systems have Tstat capabilities for increased savings where no central BMS is present.
LED lighting does so much more than reduce energy consumption! Opting for LED technology is a simple change with countless benefits to the planet, your budget, and for the people working, shopping, or living there.
LEDs increase the efficiency of the HVAC system because they emit less heat than conventional light fixtures. The quality and quantity of light is also significantly improved, which accomplishes everything from improved employee productivity to increased sales in a retail environment.
LED fixtures last 2-4 times longer than conventional lamps, substantially reducing an expensive area of maintenance. Moreover, retailers who improve their parking lot or garage lighting typically see increased daily car counts due to shopper perception of increased safety.
LEDs provide truer, more even light, improving visibility and reducing the risk of injuries. They produce very little heat and are much less likely to cause a fire. LEDs also help keep the facility cooler, reducing the likelihood that employees will overheat.
High quality lighting is a non-negotiable for entertainment venues. Modern LEDs provide “instant on” capabilities as well as programmable features that enhance the spectators’ experience. LEDs also have a significantly longer lifespan which avoids the costly maintenance work.
Compared to high-pressure sodium streetlights, LEDs provide a uniform, white light, and wide light pattern that improves nighttime visibility. LED streetlights also last up to four times longer, reducing outages and repairs.
LED lighting typically last longer and provide a higher lumen output while using less energy. This translates to better security for a fraction of the cost. LEDs are also more durable, and their energy efficiency is improved by cold winter temperatures.
