How much can your Church save?

Posted on Updated on

A small church in McHenry with a daycare will save $10,000 dollars a year, how much could yours save?

Going green with Energy Efficient LED Lighting can help your church increase your total annual cash flow. Look at the chart below to see what the return on investment is for a small church, and how waiting is not the best option for your church, school, or office building.

The science of sustainability solutions blog post by TheGuardian

Below is a link to a Great Post on: Too big to save: why commercial buildings resist energy efficiency from the guardian.

Below is our comment to the Article:

Creating change in business for commercial buildings like this can be partially done by public awareness, but it will really come down to government agencies establishing more green laws that force building owners into making their buildings more energy efficient.

You see, I am an Inventor, I make my own patented and UL approved LED lighting for schools, and other commercial properties. I have a lot of frustration when I walk into a building with old inefficient lighting that is consuming more energy than needed, and my inventions can reduce their lighting cost by 60 to 80 percent per fixture.

Our LED 1x4 Flat Panels consume from 17 to 40 watts

It further bothers me when I have over 10 Billion Dollars of performance leasing funds to fund these types of projects. I have recently offered our services to many city, and state government agencies to do free building case studies to show how we can put money back into the our building owners pockets by converting to better lighting.

The biggest objection I hear is that it is fantastic that we will save all this money, but we don’t have the money to pay for it. That is why, I provide performance based leasing options to all types of organizations, whom qualify, and are seeking to reduce their own energy use.

New, more efficient LED Lighting should lower energy bills, and maintenance cost, and with our performance based leasing programs being calculated so that they can be offset by these anticipated savings, the leasing option is designed to pay for itself. Excuse has been removed!

The savings assessment is undertaken by Eco Lighting Designs (ESCO), and your staff while the equipment lease is provided by M-Lite Solutions. So when I hear we don’t have the funds to pay for it, you haven’t tried us yet.

I welcome the challenge to make every building in our country more energy efficient, so if you are your buildings Champion or LEED coordinator contact me at dave.rozek@m-lites.com

 

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.

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)

So next time you look at all the lights in your office, school, or warehouse ask yourself how much you could be saving with an LED retrofit by M-Lite Solution. For questions, and details regarding this energy-saving post, please contact Dave Rozek at dave.rozek@m-lites.com.

LED Lighting Project: Elementary School in Mississippi

One of the most rewarding things one can do is to bring a smile to a classroom of elementary students faces. We did just that in the Mississippi school system last fall, and we look forward to repeating that process of making children smile in a few thousand more classrooms this year in 2014.

Of course giving kids better lighting in their classroom is a huge personal reward for us at M-Lite Solution LLC, but the school district gained much more than just happy students from their LED Retrofit, and LED Troffer upgrades. (see chart below)

To justify our school projects investment, we measure the return, and provided them with peace of mind by doing a comprehensive Client Impact Analysis that measures and quantifies the end results of our Energy Efficient LED Lighting upgrade based upon pre-process measurements and information provided by the school.
Our overall goal is the complete success of every LED Lighting upgrade for our projects, and their decision makers. To that end, we have outlined an anticipated ROI (Return on Investment) on our chart above, and below. This chart above provides a baseline for our expectations and framework for this projects.

 

Environmental Impact

Not only do we get smiles, and provide our clients with a positive return on investment, but we also get to reduce our planets greenhouse gases by lowering energy consumption with our Led products. It’s a Win-Win for all.
