Bowe Machineindustrial LED upgrade
Bowe Machine chose Republic to upgrade the lighting in its shop areas.
The decision was easy due to utility savings, rebate coverage, and non-financial benefits. Bowe Machine saves approximately $14,000 per year on its utility costs with new LED lights from Republic. This reduction in kWH of electricity also provides a significant benefit to the environment. (See Pollution and Natural Resource Savings below.)
Bowe Machine was also able to take advantage of massive energy rebates. Rebates covered 44% of the total project cost!
Lastly, LED lighting provides a superior work environment for Bowe Machine employees. Brighter, whiter light provides an energizing environment that maximizes safety and productivity.
“Better lighting, improved safety, an upgraded work environment, and a solution that would pay for itself – all great reasons to consider lighting. Republic showed us the way.”
