EnergyWise LED Lighting Savings Analysis

To combat the rising costs of electricity and minimize the headaches associated with frequent bulb and fixture replacements, Kevin Newell of Supreme Foods chose to implement energy efficient EnergyWise LED lighting in his newest Burger King Restaurant. The 10-year savings projections for the project are in excess of $155,000 on electric and maintenance costs.

“I wasn’t familiar with LED lighting until approached in late 2012 by Scott Van Kerkhove of EnergyWise. We were finishing the plans for this new Burger King, and after sitting down with my contractor, JR Construction, I couldn’t find a good reason to pass up the opportunity to try out the EnergyWise LED Lighting on this new store. The additional costs were a small fraction of my total project cost, and will be recouped within the first 12 months from electrical cost savings,” said Newell. “Because I was unfamiliar with the light created by the LEDs, I didn’t quite know what to expect . A week after my store opened, I was sitting inside the store and forgot that we had installed LED lighting…the light created by the bulbs and fixtures looked similar to my other stores, which was great.”
