Lighting Upgrades Make Big Difference
As part of ERIKS' movement towards increased sustainability, our LGI Distribution Center and Charleston Service Center teamed up to upgrade the lighting in their warehouse space to increase safety and reduce their carbon footprint.
The warehouse space was poorly lit with energy intensive fluorescent lamps, resulting in high electricity costs and increased health and safety risks due to poor lighting. An energy reduction group reviewed the lighting and made recommendations including: replacing all current T8 interior fluorescent lamps with 14 watt LED tubes; replacing all current exit signs with comparable LED signs; and replacing all current 400W HID fixtures with LED industrial fixtures.
The lighting upgrades produce an annual savings of $9,940 per year and make the shop much brighter, eliminating all dark spots helping to ensure the safety of our associates. The entire project took about six weeks to complete.
