Safe Haven Self Storage, with locations in Mount Kisco and Elmsford, N.Y., will be converting the existing fluorescent and incandescent lighting system at its 70,000-square-foot Mount Kisco facility to energy-efficient LED lighting. Xeleum Lighting LLC will complete the project.
Once we saw the energy audit and ROI analysis, the decision to proceed with the conversion was obvious, said Kristian Pariseau, Safe Haven director of operations. Our LED lighting investment is repaid in energy savings in less than two years and, thereafter, the cost for lighting on our monthly electric bill is reduced by over 80 percent.
Because of the very long life of LED lights, the company also anticipates substantial cost savings from not having to purchase and install replacement lights far less often than in the past.
Safe Haven, along with numerous other commercial and industrial heavy electricity users, is undertaking this conversion because the energy cost to operate LED lighting is far less than that of conventional lighting, said Xeleum President Mehrdad Ghalebi.
Xeleums lighting products are direct replacements for a wide variety of the incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lights. They exhibit extremely long maintenance-free operating life and can reduce electric lighting bills by 50 percent to 85 percent, depending upon the specific light types, electric rates and hours per day of usage, Ghalebi said.
Xeleum and its affiliate RDI develops and manufactures electronic products for commercial, industrial and residential applications. Now in its 20th year, RDI is an ISO-9001-2000 and ISO 13485 certified manufacturer with more than 700 employees at its U.S. and China facilities.
