Project Overview

Delviro highbays in warehouse

This job was completed at Korex Corporation, a manufacturing facility located on the south side of Chicago. This project focused specifically on the installation of energy efficient lighting in their storage warehouse. The total project cost was $23,447, with the company receiving $18,698 worth of rebates from the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program. Korex wound up paying only $5,541 out of pocket for the total project – less than 25% of the total project cost!

Project Details

This simple project consisted of replacing Qty (48) – 400W existing Mercury Vapor fixtures with Qty (33) Delviro Titan 160W LED highbay fixtures. The Titan LED fixtures were a perfect solution for this application because they perform better in high, open areas and provide optimal lighting for vertical surfaces, such as shelving. Furthermore, since this location is primarily a storage facility, the occupancy sensor was an ideal way to deliver even more energy savings. For example, the fixtures turn on once a customer enters the area, remain on while they source the material and deliver it to another part of the factory. After 30 minutes of no activity, the lights in the storage area shut off automatically, saving additional energy and reducing operating costs even more.

In the end, Korex reduced their monthly electrical charge from $900 to $300 saving the company $600 a month in just electric charges! The payback on this project is a little over 9 months. Also, the Delviro fixtures used in this project came with a 10-year warranty and are virtually maintenance free for the duration of the life of the fixture. “These provide incredible maintenance savings!” Jim Barca reported, “[the new lights] brighten my day every day, and I am so happy I am saving money and not burning unnecessary energy.”
