U.S. Toy improved the quality of light in their office while achieving a 64% energy savings. Their project earned them an award from the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge Interior Lighting Campaign.
BioStar upgraded over 450 LED lights in a weekend without disrupting business. Employees were amazed to see the difference in light color and quality when they returned! BioStar Lighting’s flexible installation schedule combined with the fast and clean 1-minute installation of Orion Energy Systems LDR Troffer Retrofit lights make lighting upgrades easy for any business.
Pleased with the retrofit of their offices, US Toy continued the lighting upgrades in their warehouse. By choosing a variety of warehouse LED lighting fixtures to meet their needs, the building now uses nearly 70% less energy, with an annual savings of 256,000 KWH, and an investment payback of less than 2 years.
The energy savings as well as the improvement in lighting color and brightness are remarkable when upgrading metal halide or high pressure sodium lamps. In the before photo, the contrast is significant between the daylight entering the building and the metal halide lamps. After the installation, the warehouse LED lights match the lighting color temperature of natural light.
