How much will our SunTracker Active Skylights save?
This depends on how many days a week your New Jersey facility is open and what type of lighting you will be turning off 9-10.5 hours every day.
As an example, if you have a 10,000 sq ft warehouse that is currently lit with 24 458W Metal Halide High Bays, and you are open for 5 days a week, with 8 holiday days off each year, you will save about $3,756 annually on energy alone and about another $205 per month in maintenance and HVAC savings, this equals about $6,216 in annual savings. But if your facility is operational 7 days a week, those savings become $8,735 every year. For 30 years!
More importantly, your facility will be stunning with abundant, fully diffused daylight all day long. And the productivity gains from natural daylight are worth 10-20 times the energy savings.
If you’ve already upgraded to LED High Bays at 150W, which we highly recommend – with Daylight Harvesting Dimming Controls – the savings become $3,415 annually. However, the lighting quality all day will be guaranteed to be tremendous while the annual savings with all 3 technologies will be significantly improved regardless of how many days your facility is open.
We will provide, for free, a complete ROI analysis for your unique facility as part of our comprehensive service.
We also provide, upon request and at no cost, a complete Dialux Photometrics that conservatively predicts how much daylight you can expect to see in your facility.
