Electrical Savings Summary
In November 2014 a local restaurant contracted with Shadow Lighting & Supplies, a Power Smart Gold Alliance Partner, to replace their existing lighting infrastructure with energy efficient lighting. The cost of the project was $5,100.00 and Shadow was able to secure a $3,825.00 rebate from BC Hydro resulting in a net cost of $1,275.00. Once the energy savings were calculated the estimated simple payback was less than 5 months. The following is an actual customer of Shadow Lighting and Supplies (We bet you have all eaten there)
Date Electrical Usage kWh Demand Charge Monthly Cost
July 2014 19,560 $62.28 $1,976.11
April 2015 17,100 $0.00 $1,465.97
Monthly Savings 4,920 $62.28 $510.14
As you can see actual savings were over $500.00 per month resulting in a project pay back of less than 3 months.
As we have mentioned above, all you need to do is ask.
