Westwood Honda in Port Moody, (Metro Vancouver, BC) is an early champion among auto dealerships regarding the use of LED technology to greatly reduce their business operations global CO2 emissions which will also reward them with decades of significant savings from their facilities operations costs.
Westwood Honda hired Metcalfe Lighting to upgtrade the obsolete metal halide with high efficiency Solid State LED on 36 exterior poles, wall packs and metal halide and fluorescent fixtures within their interior showroom & service departments, which will slash power consumption, virtually eliminate maintenance and pay dividends to their businesses bottom line for years to come.
LED lighting has become increasingly popular at auto dealerships as hardware costs fall, the technology matures and increasing consumer demands regarding business operations global emissions impact.
Most Canadian & U.S. utilities, still offer cash incentives to businesses to install power-saving technology as lighting accounts for nearly 6% of global CO2 emissions. A global switch to energy efficient light emitting diode (LED) technology could save over 1,400 million tons of CO2 and avoid the construction of 1,250 power stations.
