EnergyWise LED Lighting Savings Analysis
To combat the rising costs of electricity and minimize the headaches associated with frequent bulb and fixture replacements, Magic Restaurants made the decision to implement energy efficient EnergyWise LED lighting in an existing Burger King Restaurant scheduled for a 2020 remodel. The 10-year savings projections on electric and maintenance costs for the project are in excess of $180,000.
After speaking with several other Burger King Franchisees who had successfully made the transition to incorporate EnergyWise LED lighting, Magic Restaurants owners Constantine Vrailas and George Vrailas decided to make the conversion. Burger King Store #11088 presented a wonderful opportunity to update old T12 fluorescent fixtures on the interior of the restaurant, and many high-wattage fixtures on the building and in the parking lot. Many of these sold fixtures required regular maintenance and attention that impacted operations and finances.
EnergyWise Helps Procure Utility Rebates
To make the transition easier, EnergyWise provided its Utility Rebate Procurement Services to secure a commitment from TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) for a rebate under its Energy Right Solutions Program. This incentive rebate is expected to pay for approximately 60% of the cost of the EnergyWise LED lighting products installed in the restaurant.
Burger King Store #11088 is now the most energy efficient of Magic Restaurant’s stores, and one of the most energy efficient quick service restaurants in the U.S. While incorporating energy efficiency measures into the new Burger King helps Magic Restaurants reach its’ financial savings goals, it also helps to further emphasize their vision for sustainability.
