Wilson Town Center Receives Big Rebate on LED Lighting and Sees an Impressive ROI

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Dec 14, 2017 1:19:20 PM
Wilson Town Center is a premiere power center located in Wyoming, MI that features some impressive tenants including: Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Marshall's, Michael's, Subway and many more. The large property had traditional lighting and was expensive to operate. Wilson Town Center made the switch to LED lighting with Electro-Matic Visual to reduce operating costs, improve customers’ experiences, and overall safety.

Electro-Matic Visual was prepared for replacing a total of 55 fixtures that needed to be replaced with high quality LED parking lot lighting. The LED parking lot fixtures now illuminate the 230,506 square feet that Wilson Town Center resides on. Wilson Town Center previously had (40) 10,000 watt metal halide fixtures that were replaced with (40) 270 watt LED parking lot lights. In addition, they replaced (15) 400 watt metal halide lights with (15) 120 watt LED parking lot lighting fixtures. In both cases, they are seeing increased lighting levels and significantly reducing their energy usage.
 
The benefits don’t stop there. Wilson Town Center’s energy provider gave them a $17,000 rebate on the LED parking lot lighting fixtures to help cut initial costs of the fixtures. Also, Wilson Town Center was given an additional 20% off since Electro-Matic Visual builds all of their LED fixtures in Michigan. Wilson Town Center will see immediate financial benefits on their energy usage and will see an ROI of just over one year!

Taco Bell in Mt. Pleasant, MI Uses New Full Color LED Display to Gain Competitive Advantage

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Nov 15, 2017 4:21:40 PM
 
Taco Bell of Mount Pleasant, MI upgraded their signage with an 11mm Fusion LED Sign from Electro-Matic Visual. Taco Bell is constantly changing their menu, promoting value deals and adding new products. Having an LED sign promoting 24/7 and creating exposure to passing traffic increases their success with any of their product or menu offerings.

Taco Bell’s new 11mm Fusion LED is extra appealing with how they integrated it with the back lit Taco Bell static sign. Typically, we see LED signs that are stacked below or above a back lit cabinet and here we see this great looking LED sign stacked next to the Taco Bell sign cabinet, creating a very simple and clean looking sign.

The Fusion LED Display from Electro-Matic Visual gives Taco Bell the opportunity to display eye grabbing, full color content to promote the $1 Morning Value Menu, $5 Crispy Chicken Quesadilla Box, online ordering options and much more, giving them a competitive advantage over dull static signs. 
 
Creative, full color, content helps this Taco Bell stand out from sorrounding competition. Attractive, short, but to the point messages allow passing traffic to be more attracted to the LED display and better chance they stop in.

Electro-Matic Visual's Smart Wireless Lighting Designed to Improve ROI on LED Lights

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Sep 13, 2017 3:30:16 PM
 
Smart lighting is designed for ultimate energy efficiency and is a great compliment to LED lighting. Smart lighting wireless controls are the next big step to further benefit from LED lighting. Electro-Matic Visual’s wireless controls and application experience can enhance energy savings with LED lighting. These wireless controls allow dimming profiles to optimize energy consumption with lighting requirements and is just one of many ways smart lighting can optimize your ROI on LED lighting.

Smart lighting also includes motion-sensing controls and when integrated correctly with LED lighting the savings can be even more substantial. Motion sensing can be paired with wireless on/off control to automatically turn off individual lights or sections of lights. Motion sensing is also an ease of mind technology. Since the lights are turned on with motion and turned off with lack of motion, you no longer need to worry about shutting down after the day or setting up timers.

Smart lighting allows you to get numbers and reports on current draw, hours of usage, voltage functions and other data so you can see what areas you can improve on to maximize your lighting efficiency for your application.

LED Wall Packs Increase Visibility and Security While Reducing Energy Consumption at Fabiano Brothers

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Aug 16, 2017 9:34:45 AM
 
Fabiano Brothers is constantly moving beverages in and out of their facility. Proper lighting not only on the inside was needed, but the importance of having their loading docks equipped with quality LED lighting wall packs was necessary to have their hundreds of trucks load and unload safely throughout each day.
 
Backing in a 18-wheeler to a tight area with precision can be daunting for semi-truck drivers. Doing it with poor lighting turns that task into a nightmare. Understanding of their semi-truck drives challenges, Fabiano Brothers decided that implementing LED wall packs to help guide the drivers into the loading docks. The optic throw that the LEDs use pitches the light forward off the wall and on to the desired area to help make the path to the loading dock visible for the drivers.
 
Wall packs were not just used for the loading dock, they also fit the needs for other applications around the high bay doors that the semi-trucks would enter and exit for picking up shipments. The wall packs acts as a guide light for the drivers, giving them visibility when entering or existing the doors.
 
After business hours, wall packs are and good lighting in general, are necessary for providing good security. Security cameras that are placed outside of the building would be irrelevant without good lighting. By strategically pitching the light, the wall packs create enough light for security cameras to record at high qualities.
