LED Lighting Case Study
HOW THE SAFETY SOURCE LLC SAVED FISHER DYNAMICS $34,000 ANNUALLY ON THEIR ELECTRICITY BILL WITH AN 8.5 MONTH ROI.
Why Should You Upgrade To LED Lighting?
75%-90% energy savings over incandescent, halogen, HID and fluorescent fixtures
Low money down. Typical ROI under 24 months.
LED bulbs consume 80% less energy when compared to incandescent light bulbs
Your energy savings will more than make up for the initial expense of upgrading to LED fixtures
LED fixtures contain no harmful mercury and use less energy and produce higher light output
The Safety Source introduced a new dynamic to Fisher Dynamics recently when it installed energy-efficient interior and exterior lighting upgrades to four of the company’s seven facilities – and helped Fisher earn more than $22,000 in DTE Energy incentives. For Fisher Dynamics, one of the automotive industry’s premier suppliers of seat mechanisms, lighting is crucial when designing and manufacturing these mechanisms. The company, located in St. Clair Shores, brought The Safety Source on board to install the upgrades, including the overhaul of indoor high bay lighting at Fisher’s newest Northeast Facility. This site had a mix of 400W metal halide and 6-lamp T8 fluorescent high bay fixtures that were retrofitted with LEDs and occupancy sensors.
The Safety Source provided a free no-cost, no-obligation proposal and once approved handled the application paper work in order to secure the largest energy rebate available from DTE Energy. Fisher Dynamics received nearly $22,000 in DTE Energy incentives, including a $2,500 DTE Energy Multi-Measure Bonus. Company officials said that all the upgrades will save an estimated 306,000 in annual kWh savings and nearly $34,000 in annual energy costs.
The LED upgrade resulted in the following savings, improved light levels and maintenance costs avoidance. These LED fixtures have a 100,000 hour life expectancy and come with 5 and 10 year manufacture warranty.
