Big Check, Big Savings
Big Shine Energy partnered with Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) to congratulate Harmon Inc. on its efforts to improve sustainability at the company’s Glen Burnie facility. Harmon switched to energy-efficient LED lighting and received $27,540 in incentives from BGE’s energy efficiency program. Big Shine and BGE officials presented a ceremonial check to Harmon management at the company’s newly lit manufacturing center in Glen Burnie.
Big Shine Energy’s lighting upgrade services created an even better and brighter environment for Harmon Contract Glazing, Inc workers.
During the ceremony, Stevens Weaver from BGE’s Smart Energy Savers Program® and Big Shine Energy’s representative presented Harmon Plant Manager Paul Begley with a ceremonial check. By replacing 324 outdated 400-watt metal halide fixtures with 50-watt LED troffers, Harmon is saving approximately 454,045 kWh annually. This is equivalent to removing 744,965 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and removing 72 cars from the road. Big Shine also delivered Harmon its Big Shine #ApproachingZero green certificate.

Energy-Efficient LED Lighting
“Switching to LED lighting is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways businesses can lower energy costs,” said Bill Wolf, Manager of Energy Efficiency Programs at BGE. “Businesses of all sizes can walk in Harmon’s footsteps and take advantage of available incentives that can cover as much as 50% of the cost of eligible projects to improve energy efficiency.
After learning that Harmon’s manufacturing plant needed a lighting solution to improve the working conditions and save energy, Big Shine implemented its turnkey solution services to address Harmon’s needs.
“You did what you said you’d do and completed everything on time,” Paul Begley said. “Even the temperature of the facility dropped by at least 10 degrees, [and] the employees can feel and see the difference.”
