Industrial coatings shop saves on energy with Independence LED tubes

Shop lighting consumes a significant amount of electricity for specialty manufacturing facilities. PAC had inefficient T12 fluorescent tubes running 9 hours per work day totaling 2,340h/year. The old tubes each used 187.2 kWh per year. At a $.12/kWh electricity rate, the T12 tubes cost $22.46 per year to operate. PAC had invested in a major rooftop solar system, so reducing the waste in the lights made strong economic sense. Independence LED provided energy savings of 62% over the existing fluorescents with new LED tubes and helped bring the facility to a “Net Zero” cost of lighting with the solar photovoltaic panels. This combination of solar on the roof and LED tubes in the ceiling serve as energy intelligent siblings.
