LED Lighting Upgrade for Bings Creek Recycle Centre

Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) operates a popular recycle center that was previously outfitted with dated, inefficient lighting technologies that did not provide sufficient lighting. Shift Energy Group (Shift) was contracted by CVRD to assess the savings opportunity, design a new high efficiency LED lighting system and delver the lighting upgrade that would not only save on monthly energy bills, but also eliminate maintenance costs and improve light output in key areas. Shift’s “turn key” approach to lighting upgrades and new lighting layout achieved these goals by maximizing efficiency and eliminating light spillage.
