ONPEAK Energy is a Florida-based Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) company that works with building owners to evaluate, install, and finance investments in energy saving equipment. As one of Accesso’s properties, ONPEAK proposed a strategy to be more sustainable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions using LED retrofits. A complete upgrade of the lighting system located in the common areas, including indoor and outdoor lights was presented for Towers at West End.
ONPEAK completed a technical assessment of the properties, gathered information from staff, interviewed management, and worked with its pool of providers to come up with a solution that meets both operational and technical requirements. ONPEAK was responsible for all aspects of the project including install supervision and support of a turnkey project. The installation was done by licensed and insured contractors that were carefully selected by ONPEAK to meet quality expectations and requirements.
To increase savings, ONPEAK designed a comprehensive LED lighting retrofit for both the interior areas and parking garages. The LED retrofit included 1,230 lights installed using visually appealing fixtures from U.S.-based manufacturers that qualified for $60,000 in rebates from Xcel Energy and achieved up to $73,000 in power and maintenance savings.
Using reliable LED Fixtures from US-based manufacturers and 5-years warranty, ONPEAK successfully installed LED lights both indoors and in parking garages. The new LED lights are not only long lasting and require little to no maintenance, but they also provide better comfort for tenants. The project allows for Towers at West End to save $73,000 every year in electricity, A/C, and maintenance.
