Perishable Distributors Saves 87% on Energy with LEDs

Energy Manage SmartWatt EnergyFood distribution company Perishable Distributors of Iowa installed a new SmartLighting system from SmartWatt Energy at its Ankeny, Iowa, distribution warehouse. The system is estimated to save more than $74,000 per year in energy and coincident cooling costs.

After performing a construction-grade energy audit and completing a value-engineered design of the Ankeny facility, SmartWatt’s Chicago-based team replaced 722 T-8 fluorescent lighting fixtures with 351 energy-efficient LEDs, while adding motion-based lighting controls. SmartWatt was also able to install fewer lighting fixtures, further reducing Perishable Distributors’ energy consumption.

This project was eligible for a substantial energy efficiency rebate from the food distributor’s utility, MidAmerican, bringing the project payback period down to just nine months.
