Home Furnishings Retailer
Nationwide Lighting Retrofits

USM offers energy solutions for an array of clients and projects.

CLIENT OBJECTIVES

Reduce energy costs and carbon footprint by reducing the amount of energy needed to light several hundred retail stores and warehouse locations.

VALUE DELIVERED

With expertise in managing lighting retrofits, USM helped our client achieve significant savings of $18 million in two years, with an overall reduction in energy spend of 25% annually.

Focusing on project delivery and timing, USM has enabled the client to achieve more than $1.8 million in construction rebates to date. Happily, they are expected to see between $6-8 million in annual ongoing energy savings.

SOLUTIONS

USM developed an energy savings program jointly with the retailer and a fixture manufacturer. The program focused on all ceiling fixtures in specific areas only, primarily near racks and displays. We also upgraded outdated technology by installing motion detectors, new fluorescent fixtures, and lamps. USM even retrofitted employee areas to reduce unnecessary light and energy consumption.

BACKGROUND
