Redaptive Upgrades Saint-Gobain Facilities To Led Technology Significantly Reducing Energy Cost

Saint-Gobain

Case Study: Install LED lighting fixtures to reduce energy costs, improve safety, and increase productivity.

THE CHALLENGE

  • Saint-Gobain had previously evaluated upgrading the metal halide and fluorescent lights and had a fully scoped LED lighting retrofit proposal but could not get approval as it did not meet the internal capital budgeting payback threshold.

THE SOLUTION

  • Saint-Gobain utilized Redaptive's Efficiency-as-a-Service program, which enables businesses to avoid spending upfront capital on energy efficiency retrofits and instead, pay for the projects with the savings generated by the upgraded equipment.
  • Through Redaptive's program, all the equipment, design, procurement, installation, and utility incentive administration was managed turnkey without requiring time or resources from the Saint-Gobain team. At the request of site management, dust-tight, heat resistant, and wash-down rated fixtures were specified and priced effectively.

THE IMPACT

  • The Redaptive program resulted in significant lighting cost savings, dramatically increased lighting levels, improved working conditions, and the elimination of burnouts in a number of locations.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Footprint Upgraded: 10 Sites, 4.5M ft.2
  • Fixtures Upgraded: 12K
  • Annual Energy Savings: 11.6M kWh
  • Projected Net 10-Yr Savings: $8.9M
  • Annual Emissions Saved: 8.2K mt. of CO2
