ABC Manitoba Inc

To better understand how you can lower your business’ operating expenses by switching to LED, let’s consider the case of an example client, ABC Manitoba Inc.

ABC Manitoba Inc. is a property owner and property management firm. For the purpose of this example, lets look at one of the multi-family residential buildings that ABC Manitoba Inc. manages.

ABC Apartment is a 156 suite apartment project located in Manitoba, consisting of three separate buildings totaling 285,000 sq ft.

ABC Apartments common areas currently have the following legacy lighting installed:

  • 760 2-lamp PLC fluorescents (52 watts each) in the hallway wall sconces, and 900 incandescent bulbs (60 watts each) in the lobby and recreation rooms;
placeholder image
  • 42 4ft T8 2-lamp florescent wrap fixtures (71 watts each) in the stairwells;

  • 235 4ft T8 2-lamp florescent strip fixtures (142 watts each) in the indoor parkade; and
placeholder image
  • 10 outdoor lot lights (400 watts each) throughout the parking area.

Altogether,
ABC Apartment’s lighting consumes

1,155,200 kWh/annual

at a cost of

$44,647/ year.

ABC Apartments is considering upgrading its lighting to more efficient LED lighting to lower its energy consumption and maintenance costs in these common areas. To provide equivalent lighting, they will require:

  • 760 2-LED PLC Lamps (26 watts each) in the hallway wall sconces, and 900 LED E bulbs (9 watts each) in the lobby and recreation rooms;
  • placeholder image
  • 42 LED wrap fixtures (40 watts each) in the stairwells;
  • placeholder image
  • 117 LED strip fixtures (60 watts each) in the indoor parkade; and
  • placeholder image
  • 10 outdoor LED lot lights (150 watts each) throughout the parking area.
  • Upgrading ABC Apartment’s lighting through Manitoba Lighting would cost

    ($ 94,810)

    and would include a rebate of

    ($ 41,180).

    reducing the total project cost, including installation, to

    ($ 53,630).

    If ABC Apartments upgraded its lighting to LED, its new energy consumption would be

    326,835

    with an annual cost of

    14,064

    A lighting upgrade would save ABC Apartments

    $ 30,610 per year

    and lower its annual lighting maintenance costs by 100%. Their initial investment would show positive returns in less than 2 years, and would be eligible to be financed 100% through the Manitoba Hydro Commercial Pays Financing Program. This means that a lighting upgrade would ultimately cost ABC Company $0.00.
