Best Practice Sharing by our Australian Partner, GreenEarth Energy Ltd.: "Successful installation of Linfox Warehouse in WA with over 60% energy savings achieved"Nov. 21, 2012
"The past three months have been integral in firming up opportunities and executing current new installations for the Metrolight electronic HID “eHID” lighting product.
One of the highlights during this period was the successful completion of an installation for a Linfox / Goodman Group warehouse in Western Australia. The West Australian Premier, Colin Barnett, was on hand for the opening ceremony, along with company owners Lindsay Fox and Peter Fox. The Hazelmere facility is over 80,000m2, with more than 130 Linfox and customers’ staff working at the new warehouse. This warehouse saw over 320 fittings installed across the site.
Post the installation, an external review was commissioned and performed by a highly regarded independent Energy Efficiency Consulting firm, which reported the following key results:
• Energy savings of over 60% kWh/per year
• Greenhouse gas abatement of 259 ton CO2-epa
• Overall cost savings on electricity usage of 61%
• A 36% reduction in fittings required in comparison to competing products
These independent results are an extremely impressive qualification, of the potential of this technology across the Industrial, Manufacturing and Warehouse market in not only Australia, but also potentially the greater Asia Pacific region. On the back of these results, we have begun looking for new opportunities to distribute this product to a wider audience which has included a specific focus on the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) markets for Asia Pacific region."
