Saving on Energy Costs
A mother and daughter duo are operating the family business together. President Kristen Maier-Carlson is taking strides to improve the working environment for their tight-knit professional family. Peerless Precision, Inc. (PPI) specializes in the manufacture of precision-machined parts for the aerospace, defense, and medical device industries. Their work is difficult under improper lighting and their machinery consumes high levels of energy. With a way to save energy and improve the working environment, our Big Shine Energy consultant provided a valuable solution.
Brightening the Environment
At the PPI facility were T12, yellow-hued, flickering fluorescent tubes. The space was too dark to work with the efficiency the employees were capable of. Ms. Maier-Carlson wanted to improve the lighting for the well-being of her skilled employees. Our consultant proposed removing the wrap-around fluorescent fixtures and replacing them with LED Panels. These panels have a slim surface that allows for easy and stream-lined installation. In the Machine Shop, we installed 4ft T8 LED tubes and 2×4 LED panels. Our 2×4 panels also light the offices.
Before and After
“There’s no more flickering! … We are in love with our new lighting.” Ms. Maier-Carlson was pleased with the clean, brilliant results of the LED lighting. Their annual savings is $8,357.29. To help fund the lighting upgrade, our consultant was able to procure $6,300 for rebate incentives by working together with WG&E.
Take a look at how PPI is also helping the environment. Their decision to switch to LED lighting now only benefits their company in the long and short run; it benefits the environment by reducing carbon emissions. We’re proud to participate in our movement toward Approaching Zero carbon emissions along wih Peerless Precision, Inc.
