Commercial LED Lighting Solutions Case Study Series – Auto Dealership – BMW The case study below is an example of the increasing adoption of energy saving LED lights for commercial LED lighting solutions across a wide range of applications. Project: BMW Dealership Highlights: 1st BMW Dealership in the US with Independence LEDs Address: Virginia Owner: BMW Dealership Opportunity for LED Lights: Lighting consumes a significant amount of electricity for automotive dealerships. Like many other dealerships, this one had 2’x2’ troffers with a pair of 32 watt U bend fluorescent tubes, totaling 64 watts per fixture. At 12 hours of illumination over 6 days a week (3,744h/year), each fixture used 239.6 kWh/year. At the average electricity rate in Virginia of $.087/kWh, the lighting cost was $20.84 per fixture per year. LED Lighting Solution: Independence LED provided a 30 watt LED Retrofit Kit solution with a pair of 15 watt 2’ LED tubes. The solution saves 34 watts per fixture for over 53% savings. 2’x2’ Troffers and Custom Pendant Fixtures: Independence LED provides solutions for diverse standard and custom existing lighting and applications. LED Case Study Results: By reducing the 2’x2’ fixture wattage from 64 to 30, the annual savings is 127.3 kWh and $11 per fixture. Over the 60,000 hour 16 year life of the LEDs at 12/6, the lifetime energy savings is over $176 per fixture. With historical 3% average annual increases in energy cost and reduced bulb replacement and maintenance labor, the savings is over $348 per fixture. Since the lighting upgrade, Sterling BMW has added Rolls Royce to its offerings.
