  • Birmingham, AL (1888PressRelease) October 15, 2011 - Value Energy Solutions, one of the largest lighting installation and lighting retrofit companies in the nation, recently was awarded an energy efficient lighting retrofit project for Vulcan Interior Products.Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Vulcan Interior Products is a distributor of drywall, steel stud, insulation and acoustical ceiling products for commercial and residential construction products. One of the largest operating expenses they faced was the cost of lighting their warehouse space.

    Vulcan Interior Products, a subsidiary of Gypsum Management and Supply, contacted Chris Owens from Value Energy Solutions to help reduce their lighting energy costs. The Value Energy Solutions team thoroughly reviewed the energy useof the existing lighting program. Using their proprietary, VES Energy Savings Calculator, Value Energy Solutions presented a comprehensive lighting upgrade solution that will provide a 58% annual energy savings with a payback period of 44 months. In addition to the energy savings, Vulcan Interior Products will dramatically reduce their maintenance costs due to the extended life of the new T-5 lighting fixtures.

    The existing lighting was outdated and inefficient 400 watt metal halide lighting.Value Energy Solutions recommended upgrading the lighting fixtures to T-5 (54w) HiBay fluorescent lighting. The new lighting program will substantially reduce the annual energy usage from 45,427 KWH used per year to less than 22,000 KWH used per year. A select number of the T-5 HiBay lighting fixtures include motion sensors will provide additional energy savings. Warehouse aisles will only be lit when the motion sensors detect activity below. For Vulcan Interior Products, the motion sensors will deliver an additional 5% energy savings.

    The T5 High Bay fluorescent fixtures have many advantages over traditional lighting. T 5 Lamps are the most energy efficient technology in the fluorescent lighting industry for the cost.

    Energy Efficiency - Typical 54 watt T5 lamp produces 5000 lumens
    Lower Lumen Depreciation - only 5-6% lumen output loss between the rated
    initial and maintained lumens. Metal Halide lumen loss is about 35%.
    Higher Quality Lighting - T5 lamps have a color rendering Index of 85 while metal
    halide lamps have a CRI of 65-70.
    Instant Startup and Restrike - T5 fluorescent lamps start and restrike instantly unlike HID sources which can take several minutes to restrike.
