Car Dealer’s waste money everyday on Lighting up their Lots
It is not Rocket Science for a car dealership to know they have to light their lots to sell cars and that it cost them a lot to do so. Car Dealers are huge consumers of electricity due to the nature of the business hours and the stage they have to work on – THE LOT.
In the past years I have worked on saving schools substantial amounts of capital by providing cost efficient lighting solutions. Now I am focused on the business I grew up in as a child – THE AUTO INDUSTRY.
So far every Auto Dealer that I have personally visited has had the same end result for their lighting return on investment – AMAZING.
Let’s take a look at a recent car dealers LED lighting proposal highlights. Our upgrade is a NEW LED Shoe Box designed to replace existing car dealers parking and inventory lot lighting. This is not a cheap retrofit kit. They have CREE chips with a Mean Well driver, which are among the best in the world. So we are talking about a quality LED lighting fixture that is UL and DLC listed, which qualify’s you for your rebates.
BEYOND CAPITAL SAVINGS
REBATES IN ILLINOIS – TIME SENSITIVE
When we put together our proposals we always understate the rebate since the amount rebate is beyond our control and when the rebate funds are depleted they are gone. After our clients agree to terms and finalize the procurement of goods we immediately pre-authorize the end users rebates with the assistance of local Electrical Contractors. Currently, we have .50 cents per watt reduction in rebate provided by ComEd (see attached snap shot), but the rebate only exists while funds are available so timing is key to hit the metrics used in our “Return on Investment” (ROI).
In this example we found that the rebate estimates is $1854 higher than what we used in our proposal. The way we see it, our client is pretty happy that we over delivered by job completion by not only providing a great product but the received more money back than anticipated.
As there are many variables involved putting together the efficiency measures for each proposal the information gathered comes directly from our clients. Every dealership is different and we feel we can hit a payback for most outdoor lighting upgrades in less than 24 months with our LED lighting technology.
