Continuing A Commitment to Efficiency In need of a lighting upgrade at their New York facility, Production Engineering Manager, Nehru Satahoo was able to help facilitate a major change. Using a variety of fixtures like metal halides, high-pressure sodium and 6-lamp T5’s, the facility was operating under a colorful spill of dim and potentially unsafe light. Instead of continuing their use of traditional lighting, Satahoo brought in a Big Shine Energy consultant to assist with the complete redesign of their interior lighting scheme using LED technology. Our consultant suggested standardizing the fixtures based on ceiling height and using a wide beam angle to get rid of shadowing. The existing fixtures were using up to about 450w each. Our Probe Ultra would reduce the wattage to a consistent 130w. Not only would the new fixtures bring a bright,

BEPeterson – MA

Leading An Industry Setting the standard for custom metal fabrications of heavy-gauge metal parts and equipment since 1935, BEPeterson specializes in pressure vessel fabrication and design. Their facility is one of the largest in the Northeast. Both a high volume contract manufacturer and custom metal fabricator, BEPeterson supplies consistent high quality products to their customers. Big Shine Energy was excited to partner with such a strong industry leader in metal fabrication. Staying Up To Date At their 90,000 sq ft facility in Avon, Massachusetts, they were utilizing mostly fluorescent lighting. In some areas hung high bays that were too high to give off proper light. Our Big Shine Energy consultant was ready to provide a practical lighting solution through our photometric analysis. In some areas, high bays were hung at 40 feet, which made them difficult to access for maintenance. We proposed our Satellite HD high bay in 300W and Oriya linear high bay in 150W. This would provide an even scale of light, brightening work areas and encouraging productivity. Making the Most of It Every single light in their facility was upgraded to LED. Including the exterior wall packs, parking lot lights and almost 1700 fluorescent tubes. Aware of the exceptional incentive program in their area, BEPeterson wanted to get the most funding available for their project. National Grid approved rebates for 40% of their lighting upgrade! With 312 fixtures being retrofitted, the incentive offer was worth the legwork. Our energy consultant took care of communication, gathering and filing necessary information

Brakewell Steel – NY

As one of the leading sheet and plate metal fabricators in the Northeast region, Brakewell Steel Fabricators specializes in nearly everything made of metal. Their specialty includes but is not limited to superior capabilities including shearing, CNC Punching, CNC plasma burning, custom brake forming, welding and several others. Some of their most well-known projects include repairs at the George Washington Bridge, perimeter enclosures at Ground Zero at the World Trade Center and stair well treads within the Statue of Liberty in New York City. With such a magnitude of production, illumination levels must be sufficient. Brakewell has been in Chester, NY now almost 40 years, it’s possible to imagine how beneficial reliable lighting could be for such grand scale work. A total of thirty three metal halides were replaced using Big Shine LED’s high bay fixtures. The new lights installed by Big Shine Energy more than tripled the foot candles and now provide a bright and safer environment for their staff. Before After  

ABBA Metal Works, Inc. – NJ

Based out of Paterson, NJ, ABBA Metals specializes in welding and metal fabrication. In specialties such as metal work, which require lengthy hours of concentration, proper lighting is essential. Quality light makes a difference in the level of productivity and overall performance, LED technology provides the proper illumination to get the job done day in and day out.  Big Shine Energy replaced visibly outdated high bay fixtures with 90W and 130W LED Probe fixtures. The difference – a safer, illuminated space at a significantly lower cost. See the quality results for yourself below.

Trius Municipal & Contractors’ Equipment – NY

Trius Municipal & Contractors' Equipment has been one of the largest equipment suppliers in the Tri-state area since 1959. When establishing their location in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, they decided to make a sustainable decision by installing Big Shine LED’s Satellite HD and Big Shine LED Sidekicks at 120W and 240W. Such a change is giving them an annual savings of $9,000 and $90,000 over the next ten years on energy consumption while maintaining consistent lighting for at least 50,000 hours. By starting with such a conservative option, they will be reducing their kilowatts consumption by 39,394 kWh per year. Before After
