Altoona Pipe & Steel

Metal Halide Upgrade to LED


Altoona Pipe & Steel wanted to upgrade the lighting in their distribution center and rail shop. They wanted to improve the lighting quality of their facilities, save energy and take advantage of any rebates that were available.


Energy Stewards provided several different options to help Altoona Pipe and Steel improve their business lighting. After reviewing the proposals and seeing the cost savings, they selected a plan to replace all of their high bay metal halide lighting with energy-efficient LED lighting.


The total cost of the project was approximately $19,000 with First Energy rebate of almost $3,358. Between the energy savings and the savings realized from eliminating the maintenance costs, the payback for the project was approximately 4 years!
