National Food Distribution Service Company Anticipates Nearly $600,000 in Annual Energy Savings from Orion LED IoT enabled Lighting System

September 17, 2019

Orion Energy Systems (NASDAQ: OESX) (Orion Lighting), a provider of enterprise-grade LED lighting and energy project solutions, and sales agent BC Energy Solutions, were selected to upgrade a major privately owned national food distribution company facility with Orion’s IoT enabled LED lighting solutions.

The project involved upgrading the company's storage and distribution facility from T5 HO and T8 fluorescent lighting to Orion’s High Bay and Low Bay LED lighting fixtures. The lighting upgrade delivers improved illumination, reduced maintenance and substantially improved energy efficiency as measured in lumens per watt of electricity. Enlighted™ IoT enabled wireless sensors and controls allow the customer to automate and analyze critical facility management data, driving further savings through more carefully monitored energy consumption. 

Orion VP Sales, Josh Kurtz, commented, “We are proud to team with BC Energy in solving the lighting and installation needs for this customer operating 24/7 facilities to process and distribute highly perishable products. In addition to high quality IoT enabled LED fixtures delivering industry leading energy efficiency, Orion is also highly focused on providing innovative designs and features to address specific customer needs. We look forward to partnering with the BC Energy team to solve future lighting upgrade needs."Nick Quiroz, President of BC Energy, commented, “This project involved delivering improved facility lighting solutions that would also provide our client with substantial energy savings, all with limited disruption to their operations. The lumens per watt performance of the IoT enabled High Bay and Low Bay Orion fixtures selected for the project deliver up to 77% energy savings over the prior fluorescent system. Further, the ease of installation offered by Orion’s flexible suspended mounting options allowed us to achieve the customer’s requirement of minimal facility downtime during installation.”
