Canberra LED Retrofit Predicted to Save $15,000 a Year
Nuclear measurements company Canberra has completed a lighting retrofit at its in Meriden, Conn., facility using Noribachi Illumination LED products expected to save 63,000 kWh and $15,000 a year, Noribachi said.
The Canberra loading area originally used a combination of eight 400W high bay lights and eight flood lamps. By switching the high bays for 300W custom-designed Noribachi LED bulbs, Canberra significantly improved light levels in the loading area. It was then able to remove the flood lights, and reduce the total power consumption by about 60 percent, Noribachi said.
In Canberra’s parking, the company had previously switched from 400W to 250W HID bulbs to reduce energy costs, but lighting levels were not adequate. Noribachi retrofitted all 26 of the 250W HID bulbs with custom LED bulbs which generated a light output equivalent to the 400W bulbs, but draw only 100W, Noribachi said.
In February, Noribachi standardized pricing of its LED and solar lighting, a move that reduced prices up to 31 percent across the LED product line. The company also upgraded its LED customization technology with advancements in thermal management and DLC certifications.
