Energy Industries’ lighting retrofit eased the impact of rising utility prices for the Courier Corporation of Hawaii (CCH).
Founded in 1990, CCH specializes in moving documents, small parcels, and freight. In 2007, CCH contracted Energy Industries to perform a lighting retrofit for 86 fixtures. In addition to replacing T12 lamps and magnetic ballasts with T8 lamps and electronic ballasts, Energy Industries was able to add to the energy savings by de-lamping with reflector kits. The annual kWh savings total 33,368, which equals approximately $6,000. With a rebate of $1,797 from HECO, CCH will see a return on their investment in just over one year.
