Manufacturer Upgrades to LEDs, Saves Average Daily Usage of 28.76 kWh

NoribachiNoribachi delivered an upgraded LED highbay lighting system for Hydraflow in order to improve illumination at its 173,000-sq-foot manufacturing floor in Fullerton, California.

Noribachi engineered 384 new LED highbay fixtures with occupancy sensors and bi-level dimming to replace the existing 400W metal halides.

Hydraflow’s project goal was to increase efficiency and reduce peak-demand as well as decrease the maintenance requirements to avoid production interruptions. The new LED lighting solution also had to qualify for the rebate incentives offered through the Public Utilities Commission and Southern California Edison.

Noribachi was able to meet the specific requirement of using the existing installation hook and electrical connector, providing a plug-and-play retrofit.

A month after the installation, the upgraded LED lighting system reduced the peak demand by 64.8 kWh and the average daily usage by 28.76 kWh.

  1. After this story was published, a couple of readers questioned the kWh numbers in the story. Although the numbers came from Hydraflow, the company later sent the following information:
    “Comparing February ’14 to February ’15, Noribachi was able to reduce the number of kWh by 31,414. Hydraflow realized a savings of $1,479 which annualized is $19,279.82. After taking into account our increased production at Hydraflow and the peak demand rates experienced in the summer months, we expect the annualized savings from the install to be upwards of $40,000.”
