1.5-million square-foot facility to save millions with LED retrofit project

LumenFocus fixtures were recently used in a massive lighting upgrade for a large distribution center in eastern North Carolina. This project utilized over 3,000 LumenFocus products – a mixture of new high bay luminaires, strip and troffer retrofits in the interior spaces, along with updated exterior lighting in the parking lots.

How will the customer benefit?

  • Projected energy savings: Over $312,000 annually (based on annual usage hours and a utility rate of $0.0516 per kWh
  • Simple payback: 2.2 years
  • Return on investment: Nearly 320 percent
  • Estimated lifecycle savings: Over $3.75M

The customer will decrease their lighting energy consumption by about 64 percent – from over $487,000 to under $175,000. A full breakout of savings is below.

Environmental impact

This project will reduce energy consumption by 5 million kWh annually. This reduction is the equivalent of…

  • Greenhouse gas emissions from 751 passenger vehicles driven for one year
  • Carbon dioxide emissions from 397,795 gallons of gasoline or 347,269 gallons of diesel
  • Carbon sequestered by 58,455 tree seedlings grown for 10 years, or 4,617 acres of US forests in one year
