The Sun Products Corporation
Sun Products wanted to reduce the use of electricity in their large warehouse facility. Consequently, a decision was made to replace existing metal halide warehouse lighting with LED lighting fixtures. This resulted in operating costs savings of $8,124.90 per year. The reduction in electrical usage equals a reduction of 132 pound per year of NOx emissions.
After evaluating several types of fixtures including the high efficiency fluorescent technology, we decided on the Dialight High Bay LED unit. These LED units give the same or more light intensity as the other technologies, but require fewer fixtures. Other decisive factors were lower energy consumption and cost, less maintenance, ease of replacing the existing metal halide lights with the new fixtures, increased safety when handling, and the absence of mercury or other dangerous substances that make disposal and breakage problematic. The project was successfully completed achieving industry standards for warehouse lighting while reducing regulatory burdens and currently provides energy savings.
