Black Hills Pioneer newspaper plant upgrades to LED lighting

The Black Hills Pioneer recently upgraded all existing lighting in its Spearfish facility from fluorescent lighting to LED (light emitting diode) in order to produce light much more efficiently, cutting wattage usage by over half throughout the building. “We are always looking for new ways we can operate more efficiently and at the same time be environmentally friendly. After we ran the numbers on this upgrade, it just made good business sense to make the change,” said Scott Lister, Black Hills Pioneer operations manager. “By my estimation, theses lights should pay for themselves in less than three years through savings on our electrical usage and that doesn’t even factor in that we won’t have to replace them as often.”
