LED Retrofit as Part of LUX’s Sustainability Initiative
LUX Global Label approached APPI Energy looking for ways to lower its overall energy usage while also reinforcing its commitment to sustainability and not impacting the day-to-day work of its manufacturing employees.
APPI recommended a full LED retrofit project for the LUX manufacturing facility. This would reduce energy consumption considerably, wouldn’t interfere with the daily operations of the employees, and significantly help LUX offset its overall carbon footprint.
The project led to the removal and disposal of all fluorescent bulbs in the manufacturing facility. It immediately returned a strong ROI (63 percent) for LUX and provided brighter, safer, and more productive working conditions for many employees. The project also showed LUX’s commitment toward sustainability: the project will save more than 1,000,000 kWh per year — the equivalent of planting more than 12,000 trees or removing 162 cars from the roadways each year.
