Best Line Oil upgrades to LED lighting to better serve the community

Best Line Oil Co. Inc., one of the largest lubricant distributors in central Florida, upgraded the warehouse lighting at its Tampa facility. The company partnered with Accurate Technologies, Inc. to equip the warehouse with Flextronics 4 Module LED fixtures, which increased light levels while simultaneously cutting down on the company’s energy bill.

Kirk Davis of Accurate Technologies states, “At the beginning of this project, I surveyed the warehouse and found that the lighting was well below standards and not all fixtures were working properly. Also, employees were complaining and errors pulling product happened more than normal.  After surveying the warehouse I did a drawing of the existing lighting system and forwarded the information to our Fixture Agent and requested a photometric layout done using existing locations and also by adding a row of lights in the center. After review with the customer we decided on the Flextronics 4 Module LED fixture with over 24,000 lumens and 95% efficiency compared to the 2 lamp 8 Ft. Fluorescent fixture with just over 10,000 lumens and 60% efficiency. We did a one for one swap and increased the light levels significantly.  The owner and employees are ecstatic. Since we put in LED product with dimming drivers and sensors on each fixture we now have the ability to dim the fixtures or turn them off when no one is in the area. The old lamps had an average life of 12,000 hours and now the new LED fixtures have a L70 rating projected at 200,000 hours.”

President of Best Line Oil, Al Garcia, III, immediately noticed the incredible difference in the warehouse stating, “There is an incredible difference from what we had here, you can’t believe how happy the guys working in my warehouse are now!”  The lighting upgrade will also generate long-term energy reductions and maintenance cost savings in addition to the better light quality so that Best Line Oil can continue to deliver the quality of service to the community for which they have been known

How Your Small Business can Save Money Today

 The bottom line is important to every business owner and each small business owner also understands the pressure of operating on a shoestring budget. Businesses hear the push to “Go Green” and say, “I have bigger concerns right now”. The initiative to “Go Green” helps the environment, but what does it do for my business, today? One change that can accomplish helping the environment, and also putting money back into your pocket is switching to LED lighting.

The high efficiency and directional nature of LEDs make them idea for commercial and industrial uses. With ROI averaging under two years, the new generation of low-energy lighting makes financial sense NOW. James Russell, technical development manager at the Energy Saving Trust, said: “If customers are prepared to pay the up-front higher cost they will quickly calculate that they will see a return on their investment within the first couple of years – and will go on making financial savings for many more years. Customers will also not have the hassle and expense of frequently replacing burnt-out halogen lamps.” ENERGY STAR qualified commercial LED lighting offers an unprecedented opportunity to save energy, maintenance and cooling costs and is a natural fit for cutting-edge renovation, new construction projects, or easy retrofits. LED lighting products use at least 75% less energy and last up to 35 times longer than incandescent lighting. LED’s also produce virtually no heat and provide optimal light color for any environment from parking lots to high-end show rooms. These lighting options can help reduce your budget immediately and provide measurable savings.

Lastly, the same message you are hearing about national and global green initiatives and the call to “go green” is being heard by your customers as well.  By switching to LED lighting your business can proudly demonstrate its desire to support the well being of the community and beyond.

How a Facility Executive Can Increase Their Budget

How a Facility Executive Can Increase Their Budget
Shrinking Capital Budgets are a trend that many facility managers are facing. It is difficult to get a “yes” from senior management, even though there may be a leaky roof that needs to be fixed. Facility managers understand that it is not about how much money is available, it is making sure money is available when needed. In order for a facility manager to have his budget increase in the future, they need to show that they are adding value to the organization today. The question is how?
The best way to add value to the company and deliver measurable results is to improve how a facility operates. Improving efficiency is something that can be measured and the savings can be built into the next year’s budget. One way to achieve savings and show measurable ROI is by moving to LED lighting systems. Saving energy means saving money-both in the present and in the future. LED lighting systems have proven ROI and the results can be seen in the power bill immediately. If a facility manager’s recommendation starts saving 25%-30% off the annual power bill, that is measurable money saved, and their budget is sure to increase in the future based on the savings.
When approaching the CEO or CFO, you want to remember the 4 P’s, Professional, Practical, Proof and Perspective. The presentation should be easy to navigate, include measurable data, benchmarks and include real world statistics. You also want to include their language. This includes ROI, Payback Period, Total Cost of Ownership and Net Present Value. The first place to start would be to get a free energy audit of your facilities. Once you have this data, you would be able to solve the other key performance indicators the executives would want to know. Energy audits offer a beneficial way to examine energy needs and measure their costs against the return on investment for all proposed improvements. Below are some helpful articles that should help you get the ball rolling after your audit. For your FREE ENERGY AUDIT, call Accurate Technologies Inc. at 813-623-2481 or enter your information online at http://www.accuratetechinc.com .
