Value Distribution

T-5 and T-8 fluorescent lighting upgrade to LED


With only a 3-year old building, Value Distribution in Altoona, Pennsylvania came to us to see how a lighting retrofit could save them money on their utility bills. They have a 100,000 sq. ft. warehouse and office facility that used the latest in fluorescent lighting – T-5 and T-8 fixtures & lamps.


We conducted a free energy lighting audit and found that even though they were using the latest energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs, they did not provide the best option for Value Distribution. With long burn times due to round-the-clock shifts, LED lighting would provide the best solution. Energy Stewards removed the fluorescent lighting and replaced them with LED equivalents, and as a result was able to show them significant savings.


In addition to the monthly utility savings, LED lights also cut down on maintenance costs associated with fluorescents, as they have a significantly longer lifespan. Energy Stewards was also able to secure utility rebates that could be applied directly to the cost of the job. The end result was a 2.9 year payback and they couldn’t be more pleased.
