Darin is the Central Regional Manager for Wausau Supply, overseeing five Wausau Supply locations. As you may remember, Darin has provided us with great feedback on the previous lighting upgrade/energy projects that we have worked on in the past.
(In case you missed it, here is his last interview: http://blog.retrofitcompanies.com/blog/interview-with-wausau-supply-hid-to-led )
Earlier this year, we completed his exterior lighting LED upgrade project, and he was nice enough to let us know how it went.
What problems or issues did you have with your exterior lighting, and what were you hoping to accomplish with this lighting upgrade project?
"The outside of our building had traditional metal-halide bulbs on the building and on light posts.
Very poor lighting and not cost effective at all…We were throwing money away!!
It also was very unsafe since we have employees coming in at all times of the morning and they could not see ice in front of them."
What solution did The Retrofit Companies bring to you to address these issues?
"TRC came out and analyzed the situation and came up with a great, cost effective option
LED lighting …strategically placed so we could get the most bang for our buck
Now when it is dark outside these lights come on and light up the place just like it was daylight outside!!
Very impressive! Satisfaction beyond our expectations!!"
Why did you chose The Retrofit Companies to be your partner on this project?
"We used TRC on several other projects and they did an awesome job for us. So when it was time to make the move to LED, it was a pretty easy decision, once they showed us what they could do to solve our problem. The rebates were an added bonus…payback will be pretty quick compared to our old lighting."
Any other thoughts that you have on the project, your sales rep, or TRC in general?
"Working with good, honest people always helps to calm any concerns we might have!"
THANK YOU DARIN!
