Relumination Light Solutions Dramatically Reduce Tempe Storage Company Energy Use

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - The Tempe Storage Company contracted Relumination, LLC, the LED lighting solutions company, to update their exterior lighting with energy efficient lighting to significantly reduce energy costs and improve lighting quality for their customers. As a result, the self-storage facility reduced their lighting electricity consumption by 87%.

In addition to the energy savings, the installed LED lighting increases onsite security and provides a brighter night-time loading and unloading environment for personal and business customers. Tempe Storage Company's LED lights have improved on the ground lighting by 20% on average.

"We want to provide our community a safe, secure place to store their personal and business valuables and better lighting helps us deliver upon our customer satisfaction promise," said Terry Blakemore, owner of Tempe Storage Company. "We are able to pass along our reduced energy savings to our customers by keeping our monthly rental prices very competitive, especially considering we are Tempe's newest storage facility."

Relumination provided a full lighting energy consumption assessment, recommendations, implementation, and utility rebate processing and post-installation verification. Tempe Storage Company asked Relumination to replace all of the 215w HPS exterior lights at the self-storage facility with 26w LED fixtures which reduced the watts usage from 8,800 to 1,144 per hour. Tempe Storage Company also reduced future lighting-related maintenance expenses with the installation of LED lamps that have a 12-year estimated life span.

"Relumination lighting solutions for self-storage facilities make a positive impact on their bottom-line," said Daniel Henderson, CEO of Relumination. "Our clients typically see triple digit return on investment within the first three years of retrofitting their lighting with LED solutions."

Tempe Storage Company projects annual electricity savings and reduction in maintenance expenses to total nearly $4,000 per year with anticipated full ROI in just 30 months. In addition to the eligibility for a 100% tax deduction through The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010, the Arizona self-storage facility used utility rebates to pay for 20% of the upgrade project.

LED lighting retrofitting is a popular way for businesses to save on energy costs, as LED lights consume on average 50 to 80 percent less energy in comparison to traditional lighting. Additional savings for businesses include reductions in energy consumption, maintenance and replacement costs, as LED lights average 50,000 hours of use and produce very little heat.

The Relumination Lighting Energy Efficiency Program (LEEP) reduces the initial capital investment and provides organizations immediate benefits of LED lighting retrofitting to rapidly increase the return on investment on the lighting upgrade.
