GreenLight Project HighLight Part 1:
Hein Electric Supply West Allis Warehouse Lighting

When we purchased our new Corporate Headquarters building in January 2016, we immediately noted the areas that needed a lighting upgrade to better suit our needs. 

One of the first priorities was the Warehouse.  The existing Warehouse had approximately (100) 4-Lamp T5 HO fixtures illuminating the aisles, the receiving area, and the shipping areas at 220 Watts per fixture.  

Thanks to our partners at GE Lighting, we were able to replace the existing T5HO fixtures with new GE ALBEO LED Hi Bays. For the general warehouse, we installed (96) GE Albeo, 17,200 lumen fixtures at 153 watts each.  For the Shipping and Receiving areas, we installed (4) GE Albeo 24,160 lumen fixtures at 190 watts each.  

We opted to increase the light level in lieu of maximizing our energy savings. GE offers an Albeo 12,000 lumen, 95 watt fixture package, but we decided that a greater lumen output was a better option for our space.  The result is clarity of the box labels, better visibility to pull product, and a safer working environment.
