Scott-McCrae Automotive Group
The Scott-McCrae Automotive Group in Jacksonville, Florida, was actively searching for an energy partner to install LED lighting and power conservation tools at two of its six locations.
Tenzing Energy Solutions worked closely with the dealership to maximize value by finding the best possible combination of quality and price. They conducted ongoing negotiations with multiple vendors to achieve significant discounts on the LED lighting. Then, to ensure quality, Tenzing obtained a 10-year warranty on the lighting, protecting the dealership’s investment.
In addition to the LED lighting, Tenzing also installed Autani active controls that provide management of lighting levels based on time of day, motion, occupancy and the amount of natural light. The system is remotely accessible 24/7 through a secure web portal. Programmable thermostats provide additional savings, and the project reduced the number of fixtures by 50 percent.
The project is generating annual savings of more than $120,000, paying for itself in less than 2.5 years, with those savings then going directly to the dealership’s bottom line. The LED lighting also provides a brighter, more attractive appearance to the dealership, increasing lumens to showcase the dealership’s automobiles in the best possible light, an important feature during the car-buying process.
