Devcon Commons in Enfield, Connecticut, and Devcon Shops in Westfield, Massachusetts, are large regional retail centers anchored by several nationally renowned tenants that experience a high volume of traffic on a daily basis.
Fidelity Energy & Sustainability was approached to develop a solution to enhance visibility and increase safety at these shopping centers. Opportunities to improve the quality of the existing lighting in the parking lot were identified, with the added benefits of reducing operating and maintenance expenses.
Between the two properties, over 211 canopy and wall-mounted fixtures and 66 1,000-watt High Intensity Discharge (HID) pole-mounted lights were replaced with high-performance 380-watt LED fixtures. These upgrades resulted in light levels that nearly tripled the previous levels in the parking lots at both plazas. Customizable motion sensors were installed to dim the lights by 30% when areas are unoccupied.
Fidelity Energy & Sustainability delivered security utility incentives of nearly $88,000, providing a turnkey solution that will reduce electric consumption by 55% and result in nearly $67,000 in annual savings. After virtually eliminating maintenance related costs, a total of over $1,000,000 in savings is anticipated over the lifespan of the fixtures.
