Aladdin LED Lighting Before and After

(Belleville, Ontario) – Businesses with outdated lighting systems are discovering that the Aladdin LED from Lumeneering Innovations magically transforms existing light fixtures into high-efficiency Light-Emitting Diode (LED) systems with enhanced quality of light with lower energy and maintenance costs.

Quinte Health Care Belleville and others are deploying the product, and A & E Ceramic Tile & Marble in Belleville, Ontario is the latest business to transform its entire lighting system to Aladdin LED panels. A&E is a family tiling business that has been committed to quality and service since Elvis Leonarduzzi’s father, Armando, started tiling decades ago. Elvis recently retrofitted 23 fixtures from 131-watt fluorescent lamps to 34-watt LEDs in his tile showroom. The upgrade earned a Veridian utility rebate of over $800 and the system includes an industry-leading five-year product warranty which means a maintenance-free system.

“I couldn’t be happier with how bright and cheery our store looks now,” says Elvis Leonarduzzi. “The new lighting is so natural-looking that our tile inventory shows its true colors. The difference is amazing from the showroom to the warehouse of to our offices. I needed to upgrade my store’s lighting system so that customers could see our tile in natural lighting the way it would appear in their home. I’m embarrassed to say that our old lighting was so bad that everything looked yellowish-green. When shoppers walked outside to the parking lot to see what the tile really looked like, I knew we had to take action. I was looking for way to cut our hydro bill and the rebate from Veridian was a key driver in our decision.“

Aladdin LED panels may be purchased directly for self-installation, but Mr. Leonarduzzi chose to have them installed by Lumeneering Innovation staff. “The installers were great people, very professional,” says Elvis. “They completed the entire installation in just one night without disrupting my business. The folks from Lumeneering Innovations first contacted me about 2-3 years ago. Back then, the retrofit would have required disrupting my business to remove the old fixtures. When they returned to tell me that could use my existing fixtures with their new Aladdin LED panels, it was a no-brainer to make the investment to get both natural lighting and energy savings I can’t describe what the new atmosphere the better lighting has created among my employees as well as my customers. With the new Aladdin LED panels, the decision to upgrade should be a no-brainer for any retailer like more who depends on showing his product at its best. I’m proud to be among the first businesses in North America to benefit from this new product.”

Aladdin LED panels deliver up to 4,300 lumens using 50-70% less energy than traditional fluorescents with a guaranteed life of over 50,000 hours. Best of all, the panels can be installed by one person in less than 5 minutes by simply wiring to the existing ballast inputs which is simpler than replacing the existing ballast and lamp. The panels are available in 2×2 or 2×4 modular formats and may be installed in any combination to meet your specific lighting upgrade requirements. The panels qualify for all electric utility rebate programs to reduce the upfront investment resulting in faster payback periods.

(Cobourg, Ontario) – SABIC’s Cobourg Ontario facility earned a 2016 Hydro One Excellence on Energy Conservation for successfully completing an energy efficiency project with Lumeneering Innovations, and demonstrating exceptional leadership in conservation. The award comes as a result of the savings achieved from a lighting system upgrade that earned SABIC a Hydro One rebate of $64,570 which makes it the largest one ever issued by the utility.

SABIC’s Cobourg facility distributes, converts and fabricates plastic products and associated materials for the design and use of aerospace, mass transportation and industrial products in every part of the world. Its Cobourg, Ontario manufacturing plant’s outdated lighting system was becoming a significant financial burden. Lumeneering Innovations (LI) developed a new sustainable lighting system with sensor control and light harvesting features, which dramatically reduced energy costs while improving facility productivity.

The lighting system upgrade is projected to result in annual power savings of over $100,000. The upgrade included the installation of over 4,000 light-emitting diode tubes, over 1,000 fixture kits and lamp holders, over 50 LED retrofit kits, and almost 500 occupancy sensors and ambient light harvesting applications.

The award was presented in Cobourg on July 6, 2016 in a ceremony attended by: Paul W. Van Laren, Senior Manager of SABIC’s Cobourg Site; Eric Fernhout, Senior Electrical/Controls Leader, SABIC; Ali Hoss, Conservation Account Manager representing Hydro One; Michael Walker, Account Executive, Lumeneering Innovations; and Michael Freeman, CEO, Lumeneering Innovations.

Spotlight on James Stone: Non-Energy Benefits

February 29, 2016

James StoneEach issue we will feature a team member… In the Spotlight. We are pleased to announce that James Stone has recently joined Lumeneering Innovations to pursue business development activities in the Toronto and surrounding areas.

James has over 10 years of experience as energy auditor and conservation consultant with a strong background in commercial lighting solutions, and has worked on contract for Ontario Hydro and BOMA Toronto (Building Owners & Managers Association) delivering energy rebate incentives to commercial, industrial and multi-residential customers for their retrofit projects – 70% of which were lighting and lighting controls related. James believes that saving energy and reducing a customer’s hydro bill are only two of the many benefits of a lighting system upgrade. Often business owners overlook the non-energy related reasons to upgrade. A primary benefit is the maintenance savings from retrofitting to LED lighting that has anticipated 5-10 year life span backed by warranties. Another important benefit is being able to select the right type and amount of lighting in the workplace, especially related to conducting specific tasks. Companies also benefit from the impact that light can have on things like quality control of products, output & production levels, health and safety (reducing accidents), employee morale, absenteeism, etc. Plus, a well-maintained, energy efficient lighting system may improve property values, boost the corporate image, and enhance how customers perceive a company as soon as they walk into the building (or even before they walk into the building in the case of dramatic outdoor lighting improvements). Also, many businesses are eager to be perceived as going green and doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint, and some even mandate that they only deal with other businesses who share the same values. These are all ‘soft dollar’ non-energy benefits that should be considered as part of any lighting system upgrade.

Risk-Free Project Financing Available

February 29, 2016

Not having the upfront cash to pay for a lighting upgrade project is among the greatest barrier for some customers to consider a retrofit project. To overcome this, Lumeneering Innovations is now offering to provide select customers with 100% financing as a pilot for a limited number of projects. For this pilot program, customers will be able to pay back the installation costs on a monthly basis with payments based on the hydro bill savings achieved so there is little or no out-of-pocket expense. Plus, customers may have the option to apply the utility rebate toward the installation cost or use the rebate funds elsewhere.

SaveONenergy Rebates Extended Through May

February 29, 2016

The saveONenergy program funded by Ontario hydro utilities has announced that the commercial lighting rebate program will continue at current dollar levels through at least the end of May 2016 before the rebate programs change under the new 2016-2020 framework.This was terrific news after comments by some utilities last fall that the rebates would be reduced by as much as 60% for certain lighting retrofits at the end of last year if not sooner.

Pet Valu Retail Chain Demonstrates Savings

February 29, 2016

The Pet Valu retail location in Picton, Ontario is among the most recent lighting upgrade customers for Lumeneering Innovations. The pet grooming and supplies franchise partnered with its corporate office and saveONenergy utility to co-fund the single store retrofit to demonstrate the potential for energy and maintenance savings as well as improved lighting quality in its other franchise locations across North America. The pet store replaced over 230 fluorescent lighting tubes and fixtures for projected savings of over $3000 annually. The project earned a saveONenergy rebate of over $1,000.

Winning Toyota Dealer Brings Upgrade Indoors

February 29, 2016

As NASCAR fans know, the Toyota brand is no stranger to the winner’s circle after earning the Sprint title and a first-ever win at the Daytona 500. Jackson’s Toyota Scion is continuing its winning ways as well. Central Ontario’s largest Toyota dealer has served the community of Barrie for more than 40 years. Owner Bob Jackson first had LI improve his dealership’s outdoor lighting. The lighting upgrade included the replacement of over 125 fixtures, including canopy, floodlights, and wall-mounted lights as well as the spotlights for display cars in front of the dealership. The project earned a saveONenergy rebate from Powerstream of over $28,000.

After basking in the glow (and savings) of the outdoor makeover, Bob Jackson called Bill Bogardis of Lumeneering Innovations (LI) back to upgrade the indoor lighting as well. LI is just completing the installation or retrofit of 130 fixtures and over 600 lights in the sales office and service bays which is projected to save at least $16,000 annually and will earn the dealer a$12,000 utility rebate from Powerstream. Both the outdoor and indoor system upgrades included remote and daylight harvesting controls as well as recycling of all the old lamps and ballasts with 10 year of no lighting maintenance costs The result is an industry-leading energy efficient facility that is significantly reducing its carbon footprint.

Ice Arena Showcases Figure Skaters and Hockey Team

February 29, 2016

A past newsletter featured the amazing transformation of the Picton hockey arena in Prince Edward County. You can see the project for yourself in the video posted online. In the video, Lisa Lindsey and Richard Lightfoot from the County share the results along with LI’s own Mike Walker.

The success of that project has led the County to accelerate the lighting upgrade of a second, newer ice arena. The Essroc Arena AKA New Duke Dome located in Wellington, Ontario is just 5 years old, but the County has learned that it can’t afford to wait until the arena’s 72 light fixtures burn out to have them replaced because both the savings and quality are so dramatic. The new lighting features an infinitely dimmable system that is important to the presentation of figure skating performances, with brightness levels and natural color quality to meet the rigorous standards for high-definition television broadcasts of Wellington Dukes hockey league games.

The Wellington project includes the retrofitting of 72 ice pad metal halide high bay fixtures from 458-watt to 200-watt LEDs plus 500 LED lamps in dressing rooms and perimeter walking track. The upgrade earned a saveONenergy utility rebate of over $10,000.

Ontario Auto Dealership to Become First North American Installation of Next-Generation Graphene LED Lighting Technology

December 17, 2015

Lumeneering Innovations To Install LED Lighting System That Makes Quantum Leap in Quality, Durability, Savings

Spelmer Chrysler Jeep Dodge Sales in Trenton, Ontario, Canada will become the first Northern American installation of a next-generation graphene enhanced LED lighting technology from Canadian companies Graphene Lighting PLC and Lumeneering Innovations, Inc.

Jason Spelmer, Dealer Principal and President, Spelmer Chrysler Jeep Dodge Sales, chose Lumeneering Innovations to upgrade all the dealership’s lighting indoors and out to LED technology because of strong references from Ontario Power Authority’s saveONenergy program and neighbouring auto dealerships. “We are excited about upgrading to the latest technology and are always looking for way to lessen our carbon footprint,” says Mr. Spelmer. The first project phase completed in November included replacement of all outdoor and service area lighting using the latest commercially-available LED lighting technology. The next phase will deploy next-generation graphene-enhanced LED lighting in the indoor showroom to boost lighting quality and energy savings beyond the capability of current technology.

The installation will showcase a new LED technology developed by Graphene Lighting PLC, a Canadian-financed company, using the ultra-strong carbon graphene which was first discovered in 2004 by two scientists from the University of Manchester in England who later won the Nobel Prize in physics. The new bulb copies the classic design of inventor Thomas Edison but its filament has a coating of graphene, an atom-thick layer of carbon that is stronger than steel and conducts heat and electricity efficiently. As a result, graphene-enhanced bulbs offer an industry-leading 10 year warranty to produce superior quality illumination in a maintenance-free system which may last 20 years or more.

Lumeneering Innovations (LI) is a leading supplier of lighting solutions focused on turnkey system upgrades for commercial and institutional businesses in Canada and the United States. Business owners, tenants and managers of real estate are working with LI to take advantage of the saveONenergy program offered by the Ontario Power Authority and local utilities. Lighting system upgrades can dramatically cut energy bills every month, and many projects often qualify for utility-sponsored rebates to help offset the upfront expense. To learn more, contact us.

Chickens Like LEDs, Too

October 22, 2015

burnbrae-logo

Did you know that chickens are very particular about how their homes are lit? If the lighting doesn’t suit them, they won’t lay eggs. Brunbrae Farms, Canada’s leading egg producer, contacted HydroOne’s saveONenergy program and they referred them to Mike Walker of Lumeneering Innovations who helped find just the right LED lamp to meet with the chicken’s approval. As a result, Burnbrae Farms has replaced over 2,000 of its 60-watt incandescent light bulbs with 10.5-watt LED lamps. The energy savings have been dramatic, the chickens are happy, and the farm has earned a rebate totally 25% of the farm’s upfront investment.

Burnbrae Farms is a family owned and operated company that has been producing eggs for over 70 years. With farms in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta, Burnbrae Farms sells eggs and egg products to major grocery store chains, food service operations and large bakery / industrial customers throughout Canada.
