Currently, SmartWatt Energy has completed the replacement of 319 fixtures with LED lighting retrofits at Americold's temperature-controlled storage facility in Fort Worth, TX resulting in an 86% reduction in total lighting cost.
It’s estimated that this LED lighting retrofit project will reduce Americold's energy consumption at just its Fort Worth facility by 516,024 kWh and will help it shed 85.92 kW, while resulting in additional cooling savings of more than $17,000.
The project gave rise to a utility incentive greater than $46,000 from the local energy provider. Americold partnered with SmartWatt Energy's Sacramento, CA office for the Fort Worth project. Earlier this year, SmartWatt Energy completed LED lighting retrofit projects at Americold's Rochelle, IL, Victorville, CA, Allentown, PA, City of Industries, CA and Russellville, AR facilities. Latterly, SmartWatt Energy teams will be upgrading two additional Americold facilities by the end of July.
