Opportunity for LED Lights: Lighting consumes a significant amount of electricity for automotive dealerships. Like many other dealerships, this one had 2’x2’ troffers with a pair of 32 watt U bend fluorescent tubes, totaling 64 watts per fixture. At 12 hours of illumination over 6 days a week (3,744h/year), each fixture used 239.6 kWh/year. At the average electricity rate in Virginia of $.087/kWh, the lighting cost was $20.84 per fixture per year.

LED Lighting Solution: Independence LED provided a 30 watt LED Retrofit Kit solution with a pair of 15 watt 2’ LED tubes. The solution saves 34 watts per fixture for over 53% savings. The neutral white 4000K light also enhances the vehicles. The external driver and aircraft grade deep fin aluminum heat sinks on the linear modules of the LED retrofit kits provide the robust thermal management to ensure color consistency and longevity.

Case Study LED Tubes Results: By reducing the 2’x2’ fixture wattage from 64 to 30, the annual savings is 127.3 kWh and $11 per fixture. Over the 60,000 hour 16 year life of the LEDs at 12/6, the lifetime energy savings is over $176 per fixture. With historical 3% average annual increases in energy cost and reduced bulb replacement and maintenance labor, the savings is over $348 per fixture. Since the lighting upgrade.
