Industrial Lighting Retrofit
Retrofitting your current industrial lights will give you over 150,000 hours of light with one LED bulb!
Industrial lighting is a large expense for most companies and the buildings that house them. Considering an industrial lighting retrofit has many benefits and Energy Solutions International has the options that can be designed around your current driver.
Reduced Energy – The first major benefit to a retrofit with LED lights is the energy savings you’ll receive from the updated technology. According to the Energy Savings Cost Council, energy-efficient lighting upgrades have the highest return on investment of any single-technology project. LEDs use anywhere from 50% to 90% less energy and don’t require ballasts. Since ballasts require an additional 15-20% of electricity, you are saving even more money.
Durability – While initial equipment and installation is a little higher than regular lighting, a retrofit system can lower the cost by using the already established fixtures. The ability to dim with rapid on-off capabilities, means lights last longer. An electronic driver will give your business more than 150,000 hours of use before requiring replacement. LEDs are solid components and contain no tubes or filaments. When considering how easy and fast it is to break incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, it’s easy to see how LEDs are less prone to damage from external shock.
A custom industrial lighting system that will save you energy and money is only a call away.
Improved Environment – Cornell University performed a study that showed one in four workers experience work loss because of vision problems or discomfort due to lighting. With the change to an LED system, it was found that employees gained 3-5% in productivity.
Improved Performance – No more waiting for overhead lights to turn on. Most LEDs will achieve full brightness in less than a second. This means you can leave lights on, depending on motion sensors, to keep areas OSHA regulated while saving energy. The flickering and buzzing of incandescent bulbs is a thing of the past. Even near the end of their life, LEDs have a stable light output. Since LEDs are impervious to cold temperatures, it’s possible to use them in refrigerated areas without worrying about energy costs.
Property Valuation and ROI – With an average ROI of 45%, many companies see the upgrades pay for themselves in 2.2 years and continue the payback as the retrofit continues to reduce energy and maintenance costs. A retrofit strongly supports a business’s goal for a sustainable business, carbon footprint reduction, and a green building certification.
Many companies don’t offer such a wide range of industrial retrofit options, but we believe every building can benefit from an LED retrofitting. Our VXG2HO comes standard with dimming capabilities and up to 159 lumens per watt. The VA series is a great option for damp locations with instant-on and step-dimming available. With the options we offer, we can customize lights to fit your need and current fixtures – saving you time and money.
