Rochester, NY (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
Mayer Bros., a family owned and operated fine beverage producer and distributor of bottled water, juices and cider, is saving more than $121,611 in total utility costs due to a SmartWatt Energy, Inc. lighting retrofit. The projects were completed at three of their food processing and warehouse facilities throughout Western New York. SmartWatt Energy conducted a construction-grade energy audit of the facilities, including warehouse, office, loading dock, maintenance and processing space, and developed a plan to replace the existing metal halide and fluorescent lighting system with a more energy efficient fluorescent lighting system.
“We’ve developed a strong, long-term relationship with Mayer Bros.,” said Brian Donald, General Manager of SmartWatt Energy’s Rochester, NY office. “Our next step is to assess potential mechanical upgrades we can do to further increase energy efficiency at Mayer Bros.’ facilities.”
The new energy efficient lighting installed by SmartWatt Energy will save 708,276 kWh of electricity per year and will be equivalent to removing 1,062,415 pounds of Carbon Dioxide from the environment. This project also came with utility and tax incentives of $154,025 and will pay for itself in just 12 months.
