With a corporate initiative to reduce energy waste, Bolthouse Farms partnered with US Energy Recovery to implement a project to reduce their energy consumption at their distribution center located in Hodgkins, IL. The cost savings project included the replacement of all traditional inefficient lighting with LED lighting technology. Motion sensor controls were installed in warehouse areas to maximize energy savings and extend the life of the LED fixtures. In addition to the energy savings, the LED light fixtures have long-term warranties that will reduce future maintenance expense. In addition to the maintenance and energy savings, Bolthouse Farms saw significant improvement in light levels that have since increased safety and morale, reduce forklift pick errors, and create a refreshed atmosphere within the facility.
