Energy Saving Solutions, a national supplier of energy-efficient LED and induction lighting technology to business and government, announced today that Brumit Restaurant Group (BMG), the operator of 43 Arby’s restaurants in North Carolina and South Carolina, has completely retrofitted one of their flagship locations with energy efficient and long-lasting LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting fixtures. Projected cost savings for the firm are $2,296.99 annually in reduced electricity bills and gross savings of $7,265.16 annually and $68,678.89 in lifetime savings (11.47 years) when both maintenance and electricity are factored together.

“The Energy Savings Solutions project team took the time to craft a lighting solution to the unique requirements we have as a busy operator of high traffic restaurants,” commented Greg Catavenis, controller of Brumit Restaurant Group. “The installation was seamless and professional and since the rollout of LED lighting we’ve seen over 40 percent savings in our electrical expenditures. Just like our organization, Energy Saving Solutions is clearly dedicated to exceeding customer expectations.”

As part of Wendy’s/Arby’s Group, Inc., the third largest quick-service restaurant company in the United States, Brumit Restaurant Group serves over 30,000 hungry customers daily across its 43 locations throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. BMG founder Joe Brumit said the installation of eco-friendly bulbs and fixtures from Energy Saving Solutions is yet another example of his organization’s commitment to customers and company members and the communities Arby’s serves. In addition to reducing waste through a company-wide recycling program, Mr. Brumit said that the BMG leadership and members are active in organizations such as The United Way, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, the American Red Cross, the University of North Carolina at Asheville, Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, The Health Adventure, Child Advocacy Programs, among others.

“We’re proud to be able to play a part in the BRG success story and support their mission to minimize their environmental impact through reduction of their carbon footprint with the efficiencies of the latest in lighting technology,” stated Peter Stein, founder and CEO of Energy Saving Solutions. “The use of visually appealing, cost-saving and eco-friendly lighting within an organization serving thousands of customers a day is proof positive that LED and induction lighting is becoming the smart, mainstream choice for businesses of all sizes in any industry.”

Launched nearly four years ago 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 save up to 90 percent of energy compared to yesterday’s inefficient incandescent bulbs once ubiquitous in homes and businesses.

LED and Induction Lighting: Two Green Alternatives to Traditional Energy-Wasting Bulbs

LED Lighting
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.

Induction Lighting
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.
