General Motors Going Green With New Lighting Fixtures

The largest automotive company in the world plans to cut electricity cost by changing out their lighting fixtures.
April 20, 2012 - PRLog -- General Motors’ Manufacturing plant in Spring Hills will save $800,000 annually by upgrading their lighting in its assembly and engine plants. More than 4,000 fixtures with be replaced with higher efficiency fluorescent lighting and will save nearly 8.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, which is the same amount of energy needed to power close to 800 homes.

The lights that are being replaced are in the buildings that will soon be producing the 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the Ecotec 2.5L engine, and will be installed in the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. Ken Knight, a manufacturing complex manager recently stated how by replacing older lighting it enables them to significantly conserve energy and easily save money.

The new fixtures has the latest technology in building lighting which enables the building and plants to optimize lighting to various specified tasks and reduces lighting during non-production hours. A second phase of the lighting project will be done later this year. The combined savings will help the company from having to pay more than $1.3 million a year in electricity costs. The dismantling and recycling of the fixtures being replaced is being taken of by GM.
