LED Retrofit Project at Chicago Motor Cars

Posted on Updated on

Our project at Chicago Motor Cars was very cut and dry. Owner Frank Sacco wanted a green showroom regardless of the Return on Investment (ROI). He wanted great lighting for his exotic, luxury, and vintage sports cars that are hand-picked by some of the nation’s top buyers. The lighting quality at Chicago Motor Cars must be exceptional, and M-Lite Solution was ready to make it happen with one of our LED retrofit kits.

We had a few different lighting solutions for Chicago Motor Cars, but our 1×4 LED retrofit panel fit the clients request perfectly. Chicago Motor Cars current troffers consumed 94 watts per fixture.  Each troffer put out a yellow colored light with the standard humming noise that would prevent a small child from napping. Our 1×4 LED retrofit kit only consumes 34 watts, will push out 34oo lumens in a pure white light without any light flicker, or that annoying humming sound.

To justify the investment of Chicago Motor Cars, we measure the return, and we create a comprehensive Client Impact Analysis that measures and quantifies the end results of our Energy Efficient LED Lighting upgrade. This is based upon pre-process measurements, and information gathered by us and the team at Chicago Motor Cars. Below is a chart that shows the “Cost of Waiting” report.

Reducing green house gases is a big concern of Mr.Sacco’s, and he was happy to see how doing a small job like his Chicago Motor Cars west showroom would reduce their fixtures green house gases production by more than 63 percent. This is comparable to saving 3,283 trees or 8 acres of trees planted.

Chicago Motor Cars is one of many commercial propriety owners in Illinois that are making the change to more efficient LED lighting, which is why Illinois leads the nation in “Green Buildings”. However, small jobs like this one do not have a fast rate of return due to the limited hours of operation compared to a factory that uses their lighting 24/7. Chicago Motor Cars will see a return on investment in less than 16 months of the LED lighting retrofit.

Of course this was not a large project of ours, and the larger the project, the more the energy usage would yield, thus a higher rate of return. Our overall goal of reducing our clients energy usage was attained by reaching a 64 percent reduction. (see chart below)
