The installation process was simple and we were up and running in no time. We especially appreciated the zero upfront cost program which means we’ve been seeing cost savings before we made any capital outlay.
Maimi, FL (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
Energy Saving Solutions, a national supplier of energy-efficient LED and induction lighting technology to business and government, announced today that both showroom locations of Mia Cucina, a distributor and retailer of fine Italian home furnishing products, have been completely retrofitted with cost-saving and long-lasting LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting fixtures. Projected cost savings for the firm are $3,517 annually in reduced electricity bills and gross savings of $9,128.60 annually and $121,872.56 in lifetime savings when both maintenance and electricity are factored together.
With two popular showrooms in South Florida, one in Aventura at 20385 Biscayne Boulevard and another at 105/107 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, the LED bulbs and fixtures from Energy Saving Solutions provides a warm, natural lighting with perfect color balance to best display the high quality kitchen, bath, closet, door and home furnishing products his company imports from leading Italian manufacturers, according to Mark Murphy, owner and president of Mia Cucina.
“Our goal was to have the same high quality lighting that more expensive and less energy-efficient halogen lights were giving us, while enjoying a much longer bulb life to reduce maintenance costs,” Mr. Murphy stated. “The installation process was simple and we were up and running in no time. We especially appreciated the zero upfront cost program which means we’ve been seeing real savings before we made any capital outlay.”
Mr. Murphy also added that the lighting from Energy Saving Solutions qualified for EPAct 2005 tax credits, a federal program that provides a tax savings of sixty cents per square foot once the LED lights were installed. Information about the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005) can be found at the U.S. Department of Energy’s website.
Speaking with Mr. Murphy and his staff via video conferencing from the Energy Saving Solutions headquarters in Miami, Peter Stein, founder and CEO of Energy Saving Solutions, presented Mia Cucina with a certificate of ownership for the LED lighting fixtures recently installed at his company’s two locations and an oversized “check” for $121,872.56 representing the lifetime savings gained by energy savings and eliminating bulb replacement and maintenance overhead.
“We’re delighted to have Mia Cucina as a new customer and the opportunity to provide world class lighting for the beautiful showrooms that have become a destination for consumers seeking the finest in home décor and furnishings,” Mr. Stein commented. “It is always an honor for us to help our clients enjoy the peace of mind of virtually maintenance-free lighting while saving money and keeping the planet healthy with a reduced carbon footprint.”
Launched just last year as a developer and manufacturer of LED lighting products, Energy Saving Solutions has grown rapidly due to increased public awareness of the advantages of alternatives to old fashioned filament wire light bulbs. Most of the company’s line of commercial lighting products function with light emitting diodes, known as LEDs, that burn only about 20 percent of the energy of yesterday’s inefficient incandescent bulbs once ubiquitous in homes and businesses.
“From the very beginning, Energy Saving Solutions has had a tight focus on helping organizations significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while saving our customers money by cutting their utility bills by half or more and not having to replace burned out lights.”
The remainder of the Energy Saving Solutions product line uses induction technology, an approach which saves energy and extends fixture life by powering gas lamps via electromagnetic fields outside the glass envelope of the bulb instead of internally.
Mr. Stein also credits his company’s success to the firm’s popular ‘Zero Out of Pocket LED Retrofit’ program that provides any size commercial enterprise with upwards of tens of thousands of dollars worth of state-of-the-art, energy-efficient LED light bulbs and induction lighting.
“We’re gratified at the response to our standing offer to business and government to replace their lighting at zero upfront cost,” Mr. Stein commented. “From the very beginning, Energy Saving Solutions has had a tight focus on helping organizations significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while saving our customers money by cutting their utility bills by half or more and not having to replace burned out lights.”
According to Mr. Stein, one of the biggest challenges his company has faced is convincing potential clients that there truly is no out-of-pocket cost to adopt the greener, cooler burning and longer lasting lighting Energy Saving Solutions offers.
“To some people, it may sound too good to be true but its very simple,” he explained. “We’ll pay for your new lights, and over time you’ll pay us back with a percentage of your savings. From the first day, our clients realize a positive cash flow, while doing something positive for the environment.”
LED and Induction Lighting: Two Green Alternatives to Traditional Energy-Wasting Bulbs
Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting is very different from traditional filament-based light bulbs. The light source in LED bulbs is created by a diode, a semiconductor device with two terminals that emits light. As electricity is passed through the diode, the atoms release energy in the form of electrons which become visible as light.
Although they tend to look like ordinary fluorescent lights, induction lighting is far more efficient, longer lasting and less prone to sudden failure. Also called electrodeless lamps, induction lights use power to excite gas encased in a tube or bulb to generate brightness. Standard gas discharge lamps have internal electrodes as a power source while induction lamps are powered from the outside through electromagnetic fields, making it possible to use higher efficiency materials and achieve much more cost-effective performance.
