Overview

Installation Date: February 2017

Building Size: 42,000 ft2

Existing Equipment: Metal halide 400-watt lighting

Upgrades: Replaced high bay lighting with LED and added occupancy sensors

Results:

  • 118,456 annual kWh savings
  • $21,381 first year savings

Challenge

Due to insufficient lighting produced by the antiquated 400-watt metal halide units, the storage warehouse had been dubbed by employees as ‘The Dungeon’. Executives were becoming increasingly aware that the dark, dreary working conditions were leading to unproductive and uninspired workers.

With a major inventory audit approaching, management needed to quickly develop a project that not only brightened up the space but also made sound financial sense.

Solution

By combining LED lighting with occupancy sensing technologies, Mynt Systems was able to provide the warehouse 60% more light with 79% lower energy costs and completed the installation without interruption to Pitco’s busy operating schedule.
