When you invest in your facility, its value increases depending on the quality of your investment. In the case of Kenworth in Central Florida, they invested in quality LED lighting from Big Shine Energy.
In their 38,600 -square-foot facility, they replaced the outdated fluorescent tubes with energy efficient, LED tubes. The dim lighting of the old tubes caused Kenworth’s mechanics to take matters into their own hands by working with flashlights instead of efficient lighting. So, Kenworth General Manager Clayton Carter decided to take steps toward investing in a lighting upgrade.
Not wanting the environment to be too bright, which can cause eye discomfort and headaches, the facility needed the right lighting levels to create a productive workplace. After careful expert analysis of Kenworth’s paint room, we increased the foot candle readings from 20fc to 120fc using the Big Shine LED 100W Oriya, resulting in a stark difference.
Now, Kenworth’s facility employees can enjoy a bright, yet comfortable work environment. The facility itself will save 63,923 kWh per year. That amounts to overhead savings of more than $39,800 over the next five years.
Quality investments can result in huge savings for your facility. Check out what Kenworth is doing for the environment now that they’ve made the switch to LED lighting, and call us to find out what Big Shine Energy can do for your facility.
