LEDs to Cut Ashland Foundry & Machine Works Lighting Costs 85%

September 15, 2015 By Carl Weinschenk

Digital Lumens Energy ManageAshland Foundry & Machine Works has deployed LED lighting from Digital Lumens in its 215,000-square foot facility.

The Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System will cut 85 percent of energy used for lighting, according the company. Ashland replaced 400W and 1000W metal halide fixtures. Since deployment, the company has saved $85,652 on energy. Smart Start Lighting managed the project. Payback was reduced to two years with a PPL Electric Utilities rebate of $109,000.

The Ashland, PA-based company said that it chose Digital Lumens’ system because of its efficiency, the control it provides, the number of light levels offered, its durability and the lack of maintenance necessary.

Digital Lumens is not only an industrial LED company. The New York Times reported last week that it is supplying lights for a study at Brown University that looks at how brightness and spectrum can influence learning among adolescents.
