Atlas Box & Crating uses a smart LED lighting network from Digital Lumens to slash a million kilowatt-hours of consumption from its annual energy bill, and it’s just getting started.
Most folks probably think that paying $600 to $900 per lighting fixture is overkill. I mean, it would take forever to get payback on that, right? Not necessarily. Atlas Box & Crating, which installed Digital Lumens smart lighting in its 292,000-square-foot warehouse, recovered its cost inside of 2 years, said Frank Tavares, GPE for that Sutton, Mass.-based company. That payback came in the form of drastically reduced energy bills as well as additional incentives from its utility company and tax incentives from the state.
