LED Jobsite achieves electricity savings milestone
By Peter Saunders
Lind Equipment, which develops temporary lighting in Markham, Ont., for commercial construction applications, says its LED Jobsite System has achieved a milestone of two million kWh of electricity savings.
Lind used real-time data to quantify the precise energy savings generated on active job sites. Assuming a national average price of 10 cents per kWh, the milestone represents $20 million of savings in electricity costs for sites.
This is significant because contractors do not traditionally consider the amount of energy consumed by job-site lighting, since the cost often falls on the project owner or developer.
The plug-and-play system can be reused across multiple projects, reducing waste further.
