Lineage Logistics Reduces Lighting Energy Use by 85 Percent Utilizing LED-Based Intelligent Lighting System

RICHMOND, VA and SALEM, MA, Jun 12, — Lineage Logistics and Groom Energy Solutions today announced the completion of their initial LED lighting upgrade project at the Lineage cold storage facility in Richmond, VA. As a part of Lineage’s overall sustainability efforts, the project reduces the energy consumed by the facility’s lighting systems 85 percent, and eliminates more than 100 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The system also reduces heat-load, providing the added benefit of lower energy consumption for refrigeration.

The new system replaces the previous HID based lighting fixtures with the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System, which integrates smart, high bay LED fixtures and the LightRules lighting management software. It produces illumination levels that are 25 percent brighter than the previous system and provides better visibility for Lineage personnel while limiting glare. Integrated controls turn lights on only when there is occupancy and track energy consumption on a real-time basis.
