Millard and Groom Energy Deploy One of the Nation's Largest LED Lighting Upgrades

Allentown, PA and Salem, MA: Millard announced the completion of an LED warehouse lighting retrofit at Millard's Allentown facility. Covering more than 629,000 square feet and using almost 800 LED high bay fixtures, the project is one of the largest LED deployments in the US

The implementation will save significant amounts of energy by reducing 3.5 million kilowatt hours in lighting and cooling system operation and eliminating more than 1,700 tons of CO2 into the environment.

"Millard is proud of the upgrade at our Allentown facility. It is another example of Millard's commitment to lowering our environmental impact while drastically reducing our electrical consumption using this cutting edge technology," said Barry Fischetto, chief operating officer, Millard. "We found Groom Energy to be a great partner for the system design and implementation."

Groom engineers configured the system to provide Millard operators the ability to provide lighting only when operators are present, reducing wasted energy for lighting large unoccupied areas. The system also provides Millard's operators energy consumption reporting, tracking the on-going system energy savings. Groom ensured that Millard's investment was supported with a financial incentive from PPL Electric utility, and was implemented over a five-month period, resulting in limited disruption to their business operation.

"We are excited that Millard selected us to deploy this energy efficiency upgrade," said Fritz Troller, executive vice president at Groom Energy. "The system economic and environmental benefits are dramatic, and we look forward to working the Millard team on future energy efficiency projects at this and other facilities."
