A 119,000 square foot metal fabrication facility upgraded 198 high-bay metal halide light fixtures with more efficient lighting incorporating occupancy sensors. It also reduced compressed air pressure and fixed compressed air leaks. These measures reduced total energy use by roughly 17 percent for $25,000 a year in energy savings. The total cost of the project was about $47,000, resulting in a simple payback in less than two years. Additional benefits from the upgrades included reduced scrap rate, an improved work environment and increased employee safety.
