Trane Cuts Costs With Lighting Retrofit

trane.jpgAir conditioning manufacturer Trane has saved over $30,000 in energy costs with a lighting retrofit at its Vidalia, Ga., production facility. Orion’s high intensity fluorescent lighting system has reduced energy use by more than 467,000 kilowatt hours.

The company also recently installed Orion’s Wireless InteLite system. Before the retrofit, the plant kept all of its lights on for safety 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With the new control system, Trane turns off 90 percent of lighting in areas where it’s not needed. The system could save Trane another 498,000 kilowatt hours and more than $32,000 annually.

One thought on “Trane Cuts Costs With Lighting Retrofit

  1. Lighting retrofits are very nice. What Trane needs to do however, is establish high standards of correctly sizing, charging, installing and servicing equipment for its dealers. The industry as a whole does a terrible job at this. Just selling oversized ‘efficient’ systems is not green behavior.
