Bierson Corporation, Central Point, Oregon
Estimated Annual Savings: $39,400
Bierson Corporation recently completed an upgrade to the lighting in their manufacturing plant which reduces energy costs while also saving staff time and improving flexibility on the manufacturing floor.
The company, based in Southern Oregon, manufactures decorative architectural components for offices, hospitals, retail and more. Replacing older lighting throughout their facility was a top priority due to their slower warmup time and inflexible schedules. Crews would be spending time either waiting in the dark or wasting energy burning lights longer than needed.
Thanks to the help of Central Electric Lighting and cash incentives from Energy Trust of Oregon, Bierson was able to update their old metal halide and fluroescent fixtures with energy-efficient LED and TLED lighting. The new lighting is much quicker to power on and saves energy by only illuminating when needed thanks to the vacancy sensors that were also equipped.
These upgrades will save an estimated $39,460 in annual energy costs. Energy Trust incentives of $9,180 covered nearly half the initial project cost — making it much easier for the company to undertake this large upgrade.
