LED Lighting Saves Warehouse 50% on Exterior Energy Costs
Industrial Developments International (IDI), a privately held real estate company with offices nationwide, reduced energy costs at its Jurupa Valley, Calif., warehouse by using a range of exterior LEDs from Eaton’s Cooper Lighting business.
IDI is realizing a total energy savings of more than 50 percent compared to metal halide equivalents.
IDI, partnering with design-build contractor, Excellence in Electricity, utilized McGraw-Edison Ventus luminaires. At 309 watts, the Ventus LED fixtures were able to generate a light level similar to a 458-watt metal halide equivalent, allowing for a reduced number of fixtures and a savings of more than 50 percent on exterior lighting cost.
For wall-mounted applications, the company chose Lumark Crosstour wall pack luminaires, offering comparable light levels of 175-watt metal halide products, using 30 total watts.
Beyond parking lot and building façade illumination, IDI also installed Invue Vision LED floodlights with control options. Seven unique optical distributions can emphasize target applications while eliminating unwanted spill light. Fixtures also feature a 4000 Kelvin (K) correlated color temperature (CCT) to match all other LED products illuminating the building’s façade.
