Kent Adhesive Products Switches to Eco Lighting
New fixtures are designed to maximize energy efficiency and light distribution.
Kent, OH-based Kent Adhesive Products Co. (KAPCO) has decided to switch the lights in their shop from metal halide lighting to T-9 energy-efficient fixtures. The results are predicted to lower energy costs by 50% while doubling the light-output levels.
KAPCO’s energy reduction is expected to be paid for within six month after consideration of First Energy Corporation’s rebate program and an EPAct tax incentive.
“We’re able to reduce our carbon footprint by more than 207 tons while reducing our energy costs year after year,” says Ed Small, president of KAPCO.
The company worked with energy reduction and lighting specialist Bob Taussig to contract the installation of Philips Optimum high-bay fixtures. The fixtures use WhiteOptics high diffuse reflectance technology to maximize energy efficiency and light distribution.
