Upgrade at Georgia Pacific’s Mt. Olive Production Facility Corrects Lighting Deficiency While Delivering $25K+ in Operational Cost Savings
Paper Products Manufacturer
Global paper products giant, Georgia Pacific, needed a lighting upgrade at their manufacturing site in Mt. Olive, Illinois. The existing system was antiquated, inefficient and did not support the updated configuration of their roll room process areas. The poor light quality negatively impacted workplace safety and comfort, in addition to reducing the efficacy of newly installed automated scanning equipment.
IoEnergy conducted an Efficient Enterprise Report audit and determined that an LED lighting upgrade could improve the facility’s lighting quality, while also delivering operational savings in the form of lowered energy, maintenance and HVAC costs. The project, which included the installation of 582 fixtures, will pay for itself in 5.1 years, at which point Georgia Pacific will pocket the annual cost savings for a total ROI over analyzed years of 88.91%.
