LED Light Monitoring and MaintenanceNovember 7, 2016
An LED upgrade positively affects several areas of savings: operating costs, energy cost, lamp replacement and labor expenses. And because LED lamps produce less heat, the demand on cooling systems is lessened. However, warehouse managers and CFOs will want more detailed estimates about the savings that these ultra-efficient LED systems not only promise…but deliver.
The first step in your warehouse lighting retrofit is to undertake an exercise in historical and current monitoring and maintenance to determine how much you are actually spending. In turn, this will lead to an accurate calculation on potential savings that you can expect from your warehouse LED upgrade.
What is Measurement & Verification?
Measurement and Verification establishes a consistent method for quantifying performance by comparing actual energy consumed by the facility to the predicted energy consumption developed during project design.
Go Beyond Lighting can assist you in accomplishing this task at your warehouse or commercial facility. We use an industry “best practice” approach that considers engineering accuracy as well as practicality. Measurement and Verification (M&V) for each specific lighting project provides stakeholders with a cost-effectiveness analysis.
How Measurement & Verification Establishes a Baseline
The M&V plan compares the performance of existing lighting fixtures to the historical performance of that same equipment already in place. We’ll analyze any usage spikes and identify problem areas in this process so these can be immediately addressed. We’ll track the performance of the entire facility’s lighting.
Industrial and commercial clients of Go Beyond Lighting have found that intelligent LED lighting systems deliver unmatched energy savings, great flexibility and outstanding value, drastically reducing lighting energy use, and therefore, spend.
Go Beyond Lighting is eager to demonstrate how your LED upgrade will deliver on the ROI promise: reduced replacement time and costs, decreased facility cooling loads, less risk of electrical shock during lamp replacement, and 50 to 90 percent savings on lighting bills.
