Zoots dry cleaning and laundry’s 42,000-sq-foot processing facility in Brockton, Mass., retrofitted its lighting to energy efficient LEDs. The project was completed by Energy Source of Providence, RI, and consisted of replacing just over 500 outdated high-bay fluorescent lighting fixtures inside the plant with LEDs. Energy Source also installed an Internet-based system to monitor and control lighting remotely through any connected device.
The changes will net close to a 70 percent reduction in energy consumption (approximately 250,000 Kwh annually). Zoots’ lighting costs will drop by over $30,000 annually as a result of the retrofit.
