Lind Equipment – experts in temporary LED lighting for the commercial construction industry – has announced that its award-winning LED Jobsite System has reached 200 million kWh of energy savings. The LED Jobsite System is a temporary lighting solution that expertly combines ultra-efficient state-of-the-art LED technology with innovative design and rugged durability. A complete plug and play system that can be reused again and again across multiple construction projects, the LED Jobsite System provides quantifiable project cost savings along with dramatic energy savings.
Lind Equipment compiles real-time data to precisely quantify the energy savings generated by its LED Jobsite System on active jobsites. This energy savings milestone is the equivalent to removing 32,000 cars off the road for one year, or powering 22,000 homes on an annual basis. The company said that if users monetize the savings using an average of 10 cents/kWh (national average), it adds up to $20 million of savings in electricity costs.
The significance of this milestone reflects the market’s recognition of the many benefits providing by the LED Jobsite System and is a clear indicator that contractors are raising the bar for acceptable temporary lighting on their jobsites. Contractors who can bring high levels of savings to a job, along with significant safety and environmental benefits through efficient and reusable temporary lighting equipment, are elevating the standard in sustainability across the construction industry.
Traditionally, contractors don’t consider the amount of energy consumption lighting can have on a project, since often the energy costs fall to the developer/project owner. But as shown, the savings can be tremendous and is increasingly being considered by owners and contractors as it is more important than ever for construction companies to pay attention to jobsite carbon footprints. After decades of wasteful practices that are destructive to the environment, adopting the LED Jobsite System is a proactive and profitable step toward reducing the carbon footprint of construction sites, the company said. Waste is reduced by reusing the LED lights from project to project which reduces waste going to landfills and contains no hazardous chemicals such as the mercury present in compact fluorescent and metal halide bulbs, or other toxic heavy metals.
“When we first introduced the LED Jobsite system, electrical contractors challenged us to prove the savings and how it would improve their operations,” said Susan Azevedo, LED Jobsite product manager, Lind Equipment. “Through demonstrated results across many projects, contractors came to understand the potential benefits of shifting from traditional disposable temporary string lights to the practice of investing in sustainable & reusable jobsite lighting equipment. Our community of LED Jobsite contractors are increasing their project’s profitability in an environmental and socially responsible way, and we are extremely proud to play a part in their success.”
The LED Jobsite increases project efficiency and profitability by reducing labor and material, saving the owner hundreds of thousands of dollars in electricity, and creating a safer, more sustainable jobsite. The return on investment is fast – typically within months on the first project. With the ability to reuse the lights again and again on multiple projects – it’s clear why more and more contractors are standardizing on the LED Jobsite System across all their projects.
