Whole Foods Takes Advantage of New Induction Lighting Technology

EverLast® Lighting Cuts Energy Costs In Half While Providing Safer Facilities

JACKSON, MICHIGAN – August 7th, 2012 – Trammell Bell, an energy efficient lighting solutions company located in Nashville, TN, partnered with Whole Foods Market in a concerted effort toward more energy efficient lighting. “The big thing that they really wanted was the reduced maintenance costs. Better lighting and safety was also a big concern for Whole Foods,” reports Davis Bell, Representative of Trammell Bell.

The Everlast® U.S. Made Parking Garage Fixture utilizes enhanced optics, improving fixture efficiency 30% and increasing overall light distribution by 35%. In addition, the EverLast® Parking Garage Fixture incorporates SMART Bi-Level technology, stepping down the fixtures to 40% when the area is vacant for a set length of time. This technology creates the perfect lighting necessary for improved pedestrian safety in parking facilities, and energy efficiency for the building the fixtures occupy.

Whole Foods installed the EverLast® Bi-Level garage fixtures in their parking facility to ensure a greener and cost effective approach to their Nashville operation, and replaced one hundred and twenty six commonly used 175 metal halide models. “That garage was only a few years old when we did the work on it. They had fairly new lighting in there anyway, but they were having problems with it. Bell stated. “They wanted a better visual, a brighter light than what they had. I know that the owners of the garage are very pleased with the way it looks, the aesthetics and for safety reasons also.”

Bell also suggested that there were additional plans for lighting changes at Whole Foods Market of Nashville in an effort to minimize their carbon footprint, but was not able to disclose the details at this time. “The most impressive bonus the client received by choosing EverLast® is the cost savings evident in their 50%reduced electrical bill. The client’s old light fixtures were causing financial concerns due to their maintenance issues and high level of energy consumption. Their emergency back-up system suffered from being overloaded by the old light fixture’s energy consumption, rendering it unreliable.”” said Bell. “The client is very pleased with the product.”
