Case Study: Encore Metals and Efficiency Manitoba


Upgrade existing HID fixtures to high efficiency (LED) models; decrease energy consumption and HID fixture replacement costs. Increase illumination; enhancing workplace safety and productivity. Facilitate incentives through Efficiency Manitoba.


The facility was outfitted with 400 watt metal halide that used 455 watts with a hood. We installed 300 watt LED Monopoint High Bays. We utilized existing fixture locations during this retrofit, saving time and money. The newly installed LED lighting boasts a consistent 5000k colour.
