Auburn Volkswagen is a car dealership on the Auburn auto row, south of Seattle. They run their lights consistently throughout the day to light their building, and they showcase inventory selectively throughout the night. While looking for new ways to reduce energy usage, Auburn Volkswagen turned their eye to facility lighting after being approached by an Allumia rep.
Taking advantage of our Efficiency-as-a-Service program, Auburn Volkswagen was able to upgrade their retail and exterior lighting with zero upfront cost, while investing their own capital in the business they know best: auto sales and service! With the lifetime performance of LED lighting and the maintenance provisions of EaaS, not only is AVW saving on their electrical bill, but the decrease in frequency of lamp replacement means fewer hourly or FTEs are futzing with lights and more time is spent in the service department or out back on the company grill.
