Savings were a top priority at Metro Turf, an independent distributor in the golf course industry. Previously using 23 high bay lights at 274W each, and six flood lights outdoors at 150 watts each, they were consuming almost 52,000kW per year. Outdoors, six flood lights that lit up the parking lot at 150 watts each were exchanged with a Big Shine Energy LED Lux Matrix flood light at 60W. The new LED flood light and an additional four LED wall packs, only amount to 11,000 kW a year. By making the change not only are they saving 41,000 kW per year but in the next ten years, they will be able to use the $34,300.00 saved for even more upgrades.
Kennebec Equipment Rental Upgrades Portland Location The Wilson family has operated Kennebec Equipment Rental in Maine for the past 50 years. The company has a long-standing positive reputation throughout the state of Maine. Their focus is service and consultation. Also being in the business of service and consultation, Big Shine Energy understood the importance of listening to the customer’s needs. Recently, Kennebec Equipment Rental decided to upgrade the lighting of their Portland location to provide a better working environment for their employees. The existing lighting was either failing or had already failed in some areas. It was difficult for the employees to work. In the spring and summer they could leave the bay door open for the natural daylight. However, winter in Maine would soon eliminate that option.

In addition, ample lighting was needed over all of their storage and shelving units as well as workshop areas. A Big Shine Energy Consultant was able to present an appropriate solution for year-round brighter lighting. For a clear, bright result, Big Shine Energy installed the Skylon high bay as well as 1×4 Panels with a cooler 5,000k color from Big Shine LED. The panels replaced 8ft T12 fixtures. The new fixtures are providing a visible and much desired long-lasting difference. Scientifically, the brain cannot tell the difference between LED lighting and natural daylight. Now, the employees at the Portland location of Kennebec Equipment Rental can work in
