  • Promote positive employee morale.

Why Does My Manufacturing Facility Need an LED Lighting Upgrade?

Your facility lighting must run consistently, efficiently, and sometimes even continuously (24/7), often in extreme conditions. Inefficient or ineffective lighting under these trying conditions often results in costly, disruptive, and even dangerous systems.

Ensuring that your lighting system works as well as it needs to isn’t simply a matter of efficiency; it’s a matter of safety. If your lighting doesn’t measure up to strict industry requirements, you could incur fines, waste money, or even endanger your employees. To avoid these dangers, your lighting must:

Run Efficient

Manufacturing lighting systems need to reliably run 24-7 while withstanding extreme conditions and providing appropriate light levels, all without guzzling so much energy that they become cost-prohibitive.

Save Money

Lighting can make up more than 70-80% of a manufacturer’s monthly energy expense. Inefficient lighting significantly cuts into your margins, especially if it requires constant maintenance.

Work Happy

Manufacturing lighting must provide sufficient light to keep employees safe. Proper lighting placement, type, and protection are essential considerations when designing manufacturing lighting concepts.

Help the Planet

Efficient LED lighting systems waste far less energy than conventional counterparts. This will reduce your businesses’ environmental impact and net your business valuable utility incentives.

Not all LED lighting solutions are created equal. LED lighting systems can use up to 75% less energy and last 10 to 50 times longer than conventional systems, but only if they’re installed and implemented correctly.

To maximize your manufacturing businesses’ safety, productivity, energy efficiency, and ultimately profitability, you need an LED lighting system that’s custom-designed for your business and implemented by experts. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you work with PEC.

How Could an LED Retrofit Help My Manufacturing Plant?

PEC’s LED retrofit lighting solutions are custom-designed for each manufacturing client we work with. We get to know your environment, your lighting needs, and all safety and code compliance considerations before we design your lighting concept.

When PEC designs a customized lighting solution for a manufacturing client, in addition to reducing energy waste and inefficiency, and reducing overall power cost overheads we focus on ensuring employee safety and regulatory compliance. PEC’s LED retrofit lighting upgrades will:

  • Improve facility-wide light levels
  • Reduce energy usage (kWh)
  • Reduce energy spend over time
  • Drastically reduce maintenance and repair costs
  • Result in KPI improvements across the board

When you work with PEC, our lighting consultants visit your manufacturing site/s and get to know your business. We will assess your existing lighting infrastructure, ask you about your businesses’ unique challenges, and develop an understanding of your needs. You tell us what you need your lighting system to do. We make sure it does that.

After we get to know your business, we’ll design a lighting concept to solve your unique challenges. Our LED lighting concepts always achieve optimal lighting levels, maximize energy savings, help you qualify for utility incentives, and make sure you reach your operational performance goals.

PEC doesn’t just design these lighting concepts, either. After we design your plan, our project management team handles implementation. In other words, we manage the project from end-to-end. PEC’s LED retrofit lighting upgrades will help your manufacturing business because we will design and implement a solution to your lighting problems that promote safety and impact KPIs beyond energy savings and ROIs. Come to us with a lighting problem; leave with a lighting solution that pays for itself.

How Do LED Lighting Upgrades Work?

When your manufacturing company chooses PEC for your lighting solution, we will follow every step of our proprietary process of design and implementation. Here’s how our process will work for you:

Energy Assessment

What does success mean to you?

First, our lighting concept engineers meet you on-site to assess your unique lighting needs and goals. We’ll discuss the size of your space, the way you use the space, and review your current lighting. Most importantly, this is where we establish your lighting concept goals. During the energy assessment phase, we’ll figure out what you need and how we can add value to your business.

Energy Audit

Discovering what it takes to achieve your lighting goals. 

After assessing your lighting usage and needs, our team conducts an exhaustive evaluation of your business. We compile infrastructure data, measure your building’s dimensions, review your past power bills, and perform a complete onsite level analysis. During an energy audit, we gather all the data we need to make sure the work we do has a real, measurable impact on your manufacturing business.

Lighting Design and Control Services

Customizing a plan to achieve a successful lighting solution.

Once we have the data we need, we start designing the right plan for you. Our experts use the latest 3D design software to visualize what your workplace will look like with our lighting concept fully installed. When we’ve developed the plan we’ll let you “try before you buy” by seeing and asking questions the full plan in our 3D software. You’ll see exactly what your plan will look like and how it will perform before you commit to it. 

Incentive Management

Increasing your ROI by capturing funds to help cover upfront costs.

Utility incentives are local and nation-wide initiatives meant to incentivize businesses to switch to energy-efficient, green lighting. When you retrofit your facilities with energy-efficient LED upgrades, you could be entitled to tax breaks and other serious savings. During this step, PEC figures out which utility incentives your manufacturing facility may qualify for and make sure our plan qualifies for as many as possible. We’ll also apply for these incentives, handling everything required to make sure you benefit from as many as possible.     

Project Management

Making our lighting plan a reality.

When you’ve approved the plan you will be assigned a Project Manager (PM). Your PM is your main point of contact through the end of the project. They’ll let you know what to expect, schedule workers, arrange delivery and installation, and make sure everything proceeds according to plan.

Installation and Completion

Implementing your “built-to-last” solution and measuring the impact.

When we’re finished implementing your lighting plan, your PM performs a final onsite audit. This audit confirms that all elements of your plan were installed and function correctly. If everything meets our standards and your standards, we will schedule a tour with an incentive inspector and send you any final paperwork to sign off on so you can sit back and benefit from your LED lighting upgrade.

How Will the PEC Process Impact My Manufacturing Business?

PEC’s mission for each of our lighting projects is impact. We want our work to have a measurable, positive impact on your manufacturing business. Here are four concrete ways PEC’s lighting solutions will make an impact on your manufacturing business:
