When a Mini Storage Warehouse management company wanted to reduce lighting energy cost, they contacted San Juan Lighting for input. Eduardo Magdalena, AIA recommended using Magnaray® #W1PL50 units to replace the 150 watt HPS wall packs previously used. The security cameras prefer the “white light” produced by the Magnaray® units using 4100K twin T5 lamps. The lighting is now visually efficient, instant-on, and is saving over 72% in energy costs. One facility was retrofitted very successfully and now all new construction projects use the Magnaray® system. Most projects use only 40 luminaires. The newest facility also uses solar panels as a grid-tie system selling excess generation to the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA).
Note good color rendering, great uniformity, reduced glare and light where it is needed. Staggered design with 90’ same side spacing.
PV panels are roof mounted; tie into a system inverter to operate all interior AC and lighting, as well as all exterior luminaires.
The 72% load savings Magnaray® provides allows more energy to be sold to PREPA, thereby increasing the ROI for the facility owner. Annual energy savings is estimated at over ($.14Kwhr) $3,600+/year, with the following chemical pollution savings: Data Source = EPA
CO2 = 2,798+ pounds/year
SO2 = 7,725 + grams/year
NO = 9,153+ grams/year
