Syms Corporation, a leading men's retailer
located in Secaucus, New Jersey contracted Metro Energy Solutions to;
1) increase the light levels in its facility for its employees, 2)
save money on their energy costs through energy efficiency and 3) take
advantage of any utility incentives available.
Metro Energy Solutions conducted a lighting audit
of the 340,000 square foot facility. Metro Energy Solutions replaced
(936) inefficient lighting fixtures throughout the warehouse with
energy efficient fluorescent lighting fixtures. The installation
included; 1) replacing T-12 fluorescent lighting with standard
magnetic ballasts with T-8 lighting with electronic
ballasts and; 2) replacing the existing 1000-watt metal
halide fixtures with T-5 lighting with built-in
occupancy sensors. In addition, Metro Energy Solutions
installed lighting occupancy sensors in specified office areas to turn
lights off when those areas were not occupied.
Metro Energy Solutions worked closely with the host
electric utility for Syms Corporation through the New Jersey
SmartStart Building Program to capture financial incentives for the
installation of the energy efficient equipment of over $9,000.
