  • Roanoke, VA (1888PressRelease) March 17, 2012 - 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 Commonwealth Building Materials. Commonwealth Building Materials is a distributor of drywall and other building products for commercial and residential construction products. One of the largest operating expenses they faced in their Roanoke, Virginia location was the cost of lighting their warehouse space.

    Commonwealth Building Materials, 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 use of the existing lighting program. Value Energy Solutions presented a comprehensive lighting solution that replaces their lighting with new more energy efficient T5 lighting. In addition to the energy savings, Commonwealth Building Materials will dramatically reduce their maintenance costs due to the extended life of the new T-5 lighting fixtures.

    Value Energy Solutions recommended upgrading the lighting fixtures to sixty 4 LampT5 (54w) and nine 2 Lamp T5 (54w)HiBay fluorescent lighting. The T5 High Bay fluorescent fixtures have many advantages over traditional lighting. T5 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.
