As part of a continuing effort to “Go Green”, Interstate Cold Storage has contracted with Madison Industrial Lighting to complete a lighting upgrade for all of its facilities. “In addition to the great energy savings and ROI, this helps to create a safer and more pleasant work environment for our employees,” says Nick Burnham, Interstate’s Facility Manager. Work will begin in early October at the first site and will be completed by the 1st quarter of 2021.
About The Upgrades
The new high bay florescent fixtures will tremendously reduce the amount of heat generated by the traditional High-Pressure Sodium or Metal Halide fixtures. “The technology just wasn’t there 5 years ago for florescent freezer lighting, but with the improved fixtures, motion sensors, and ballasts, the tax incentives and rebate programs from the Utility Companies just help it make sense” adds Burnham. The green energy upgrades will include all areas of the facilities, including office, dock, and warehouse lighting.
