Car Dealership has a 15 month return on investment – How much can your #Dealership #SAVE

Posted on

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.

THE SAVINGS

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

Of course energy saving with a good return on investments are key in our products success, but please do not over look the benefit of having maintenance free LED lighting that shows off your products to the customer.
Beyond the aesthetics’s, LED lighting provides cleaner video footage for security cameras and the brighter light induces more productivity in employees, which is why many hospitals and universities have switched over.

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.

What sets your product apart from all those currently in the marketplace

Posted on

A Question to us in a Linkedin Group for Inventors:

From Mike P.

CEO/Prof/Mech/Engineer/Physicist/Inventor/Entrepreneur

What sets your product apart from all those currently in the marketplace and how does it compete with those from China/Taiwan/Japan/Korea etc which are first class with high outputs across all frequencies and low price.

The Answer:

Me and CBDavid Rozek

Patent Designer / Inventor at M-Lite Solution LLC

Hello Mike,

Our products are a little different. Our Ultra Slim Led Light Bar, is built based on our patented design. They run cooler, brighter, and use a fraction of the energy our competition uses. Most retrofit kits from the Asian market are not UL approved, or DLC listed, because they do not qualify or prefer to sell products cheap.

Also, most of those countries products are not heat sink well and choose not to build commercial lighting products with the proper type of drivers based on cost of goods.

I am also very fortunate to have partners that are Engineers in multiple fields. One of my partners has been the professor to the Best Engineering minds in China for years, and was appointed by the Premier of China to do so.

When it comes to price we are very competitive and our demand is more than our on-hand supply. When we raise our production level this fall, our price point will drop even more. This will widen our advantage in the LED Retrofit Market for commercial end users.

We have strategically prepared for this market, and we also warranty our products in the USA. Many Asian made products take too long in the warranty process for end users to maintain good relationships with the supplier chains and they also are not cost effective for warranty claim processing by consumers because of the cost to ship products to Asian for repair or replacement.

In addition, we respect all manufacturers of solid state lighting, but we know it is a growing market that we can grow with them based on the demand of the market.

What are the benefits of LED – Light Emitting Diodes?

Posted on Updated on

LED Lighting Benefits

Old yellow toxic florescent Vs LED Lighting
Old yellow toxic Fluorescent lighting Vs LED Lighting

Light Emitting Diodes (LED) are almost unstoppable in terms of lighting efficiency and durability, which make them incredibly resourceful for our sustainable future.  They are stylish and cool in many ways, they have such outstanding performance properties that they offer a whole series of practical benefits, including providing healthier light that even improves our moods and a higher blue light that create more tasked focused students and employees. They are more durable, cost efficient, and are environmentally friendly. LED lighting is truly a creative technology, which rightly deserves the title of “Most Innovative Product” in our ERA.

For all purpose lighting illumination, Our M-Lite Solution LED lighting products provide outstanding light, which are already being used commercial, and residential lighting applications. As far as atmospheric lighting is concerned, the multi-colored changing LED lights give inventors like David Rozek enormous creative freedom for outdoor, and indoor LED lighting. These innovative LED lights range from special lamps for military applications, the entertainment industry, and film industry, which inventor David Rozek, and staff are currently building for the next generation of LED lighting.

1. Low Energy Consumption: LED lighting has significantly reduced energy consumption without sacrificing functional efficiency and visual performance. An incandescent bulb is only able to transform 20% of the electricity that it requires into light energy, with the other 80% being given off as heat. when it comes to LED lights they do just the opposite, 80% of the electrical energy is emitted as light energy and only 20% is released as heat. Some M-Lite LED products offer 95% of its energy into to light, and as little as 5%  release of heat.

LEDs are also utilized with various lighting control technology which contributes significantly to energy savings. LEDs are fully dimmable with the right driver provided by M-Lite, and are easily incorporated into circuits with a variety of sensors, including daylight harvesting sensors, or Human Centric Lighting.

2. Long Life Expectancy: LEDs are also known for having a long life expectancy, especially when compared to incandescent and fluorescent lighting. A LED light can last up to 100,000 hours at full use, which adds up to 11 years of 100% usage. With 50% usage, a LED lamp can last for 22 years. This is a vast improvement to an incandescent lamp’s operational life, which is approximately 5,000 hours if you are lucky.

The LED’s longevity also allows for unparalleled cost effectiveness, since it reduces maintenance costs and the need for regular bulb replacement. This feature is especially useful if lighting is required in areas that are hard to reach.

3. Durability: LEDs are very durable and resilient, and are the choice lighting solutions for areas that require rugged use. Because they don’t have a fragile glass encasement and do not require a filament to function, LEDs can take a lot of jarring and bumping and still maintain their ability to function at peak efficiency. They are known for being resistant to heat, cold and shock.

Because of this particular LED feature, LEDs are they also developed for rugged use in underwater environments, and for exterior and outdoor lighting solutions. This current generation of LED lighting can be exposed to the elements and will maintain a high-performance visually in rugged environments.

4. A Cool Lighting Solution: LEDs are cool – literally. LEDs only emit a small amount of heat compared to other lighting. The LED’s ability to not cause heat build ups works to the benefit of AC units, which translates to added energy savings and cost effectiveness. Which in turn helps maintain a comfortable environment for people during hot, and muggy weather.

A little lighting change can mean a lot.
A little lighting change can mean a lot.

5. Sustainability and Green Lighting: LED is currently the favored solution for sustainable or green lighting products.  It does not contain any toxic material (e.g. mercury or neon), which makes it environmentally friendly and easier to dispose of than fluorescent lighting. LEDs do produce a very small amount of UV light, but they emit even less than an incandescent light bulb. That is because the amount of UV that it produces is converted to white light by the phosphors inside the lamp.

Because an LED has a very long operational lifespan, it lessens wattage as it does not require regular bulb replacement. LED lighting also features an unparalleled capacity for energy savings, which is a major concern for sustainable design.

6. LEDs do not attract bugs: LEDs offer relief from another problem—insects. UV light attracts insects. With virtually no UV emissions, M-Lites LED lighting products do not attract bugs, and that has made our LED Lighting products very popular in commercial food service industry and exterior building installations of M-Lite Solution lighting where it’s important to minimize the attraction of pesky insects.

Because of these many combinations of truly innovative features M-Lite Solution LED lighting products are becoming the leading choice for those opting for sustainable design and green lighting solutions World Wide. Our LED lighting solutions offer maximum lighting performance and cost effectiveness without the harmful byproducts that come with traditional lighting solutions. LED lighting is simply your best option, and are more affordable than ever with M-Lite’s LED Lighting Solutions.

LED Retrofit Project at Chicago Motor Cars

Posted on Updated on

140 1×4 troffers upgraded to our LED Retrofit Kit

Before and after with LED
Before and after with LED

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.

cropped-led_retrofit_kit_1x4_troffer-png.jpg

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.

cmc_led_retrofit_kit_2014-04-28_2023

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.

cmc_led_1x4_evir_impact_2014-04-28_2026

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.

 

cmc_savings_over_10_years_2014-04-29_0906

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)
