Plants and warehouses targeted for energy efficiency

Over the next two years, Cleveland-based GE Industrial will implement a lighting retroft in 148 manufacturing plants and warehouses worldwide. Based on extensive energy-savings analysis conducted at 65 of the 148 facilities, the retrofit will allow each location, on an average annualized basis, to reduce energy consumption by 1.4 million KwH and realize approximately $86,000 in energy-cost savings.

Estimates for the completed retrofit include reducing energy consumption by 210.5 million KwH and saving $12.8 million in energy costs, annually, when compared with the older lighting.
