LED lighting retrofit at VersaCold has 13-month payback

Gouldsboro, PA, US: A lighting refit at VersaCold’s temperature-controlled storage facility in Gouldsboro will save $195,806 per year in lighting costs and $67,308 annually in cooling.

SmartWatt Energy handled the installation that also produces better light levels. Fred Walker, Americold VersaCold’s vice president of engineering says: “The quick payback, combined with the reduction in greenhouse emissions are some of the key reasons we chose SmartWatt Energy for multiple facilities nationwide.”

Earlier this year, SmartWatt Energy completed LED lighting retrofit projects at Americold and VersaCold facilities in Rochelle, IL, Victorville, CA, Russellville, AR, City of Industries, CA, Allentown, PA and Fort Worth, TX.
