Port City Logistics is saving money every year by switching to energy efficient LED lighting!
Port City Logistics owns and manages nearly 2 million square feet of warehouse facilities in the heart of the Savannah port system. One of their facilities used to store food products had been converted from area bulk storage to aisle racking. They discovered that the lighting in their 180,000-square foot building was in need of an upgrade. The challenge was to adequately and economically light 23 aisles with food products stacked to the ceiling. There were too few lights with many of the existing lights either totally blocked or poorly spaced.
Enter LED Lowcountry. We designed a lighting system that delivers the recommended light levels throughout the facility. To do so, we increased the fixture count from 143 to 205 and installed fixtures equipped with aisle lenses that direct the light to the floor. The increased fixture count did not mean a bigger electric bill. By installing high performance LED fixtures equipped with a motion sensor, we increased efficiency by 83%.
Capital outlays are always an important factor when considering a lighting upgrade. Port City Logistics decided to take advantage of our Efficiency-as-a-Service program. The new lights are paid for through a fixed percentage of the metered electric savings. The upgraded lighting improved lighting, reduced electric costs,
eliminated maintenance costs while leading to greater safety and improved operations. Problem solved.
