Food Storage Warehouse

Las Vegas, NV

The Situation:

Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, looking to reduce increasing maintenance and energy costs recognizes that replacing obsolete light technologies and retrofitting dim T12 fluorescents with a greener LED option will deliver bright, high-quality light, while helping reduce energy consumption and costs. The current lighting was dingy, making it difficult to see and conditions less safe for employees.

The Solution:

FSC Lighting’s L8500 Series LED Strip was chosen to replace T12 fluorescent fixtures throughout the warehouse, dropping lighting costs by 70%. Lighting energy usage was cut by more than 318K kWh per year; a total savings of $31,862 annually. In addition to the direct lighting and maintenance savings, the facility can benefit from installing a cooler light source, which often times reduces HVAC costs. The key to longevity is proper thermal management; individual heat sinks on the L-Bar provide a rated life of 203,000 hours and have the ability to withstand the demanding 24/7 run time in Las Vegas heat. The difference between the existing T12 strips and FSC’s LED solution was noticeable immediately; the quality of light was drastically improved from a dreary yellow to an aesthetically pleasing natural white.
