October 2015, the Bilmar Beach Resort on Treasure Island, FL has contracted with ECO Energy Management of Clearwater, FL to retro-fit the entire resort with LED lighting. The Resort stated this project will expect to reduce their monthly electric bill by more than $3,000.00 per month. But the greatest operational savings is anticipated to come from reduced maintenance, including bulbs, ballasts and personnel time.
The Bilmar Resort conducted a very competitive analysis of vendors for this project and selected ECO Energy Management (727-444-4414) because of their quality LED Products and being one of the Tampa Bay area’s only LED Lamp Manufacturers offering one of the best performance warranties in the industry.
The project is expected to be completed before Thanksgiving allowing the Bilmar Beach Resort to focus on quality guest services. The project will utilize as many existing fixtures as possible by retro-fitting them with LED Lamps keeping the capital outlay to a minimum allowing less than an 18 month return on investment, which will continue to be realized for years to come due to the high quality design engineered into each LED Lamp.
TBTF Member Pat Jimenez, stated that “Light output is only a small part of LED and can be misleading. To fully evaluate an LED light, you need to ensure they were engineered properly for commercial use, review the overall system efficiency, the LED driver, optimal control, thermal management of the LEDs and the lumen depreciation. Eco Energy products have excellent optical efficiency and thermal management which deliver more lumens, than average than traditional lighting products. Eco Energy offers commercial grade products only designed, assembled and engineered by certified and highly experienced energy management electricians.” www.eco-energymanagment.com
