Sustainable Business Center
The Sustainable Business Center rehabilitated an old manufacturing plant in rural Illinois. Proving that smart, sustainable business can be supported anywhere, SBC opened its doors to an HVAC tech company, a farm-to-table restaurant, and fresh seafood distributor, all operating under legacy, energy-guzzling lighting. Being mission-driven, it was going to be a challenge to develop the right solution and keep costs down for all involved.
Enter Allumia. The right solution would require more infrastructure work than your average project, but by utilizing Allumia service, as well as local support via the installer and utility partner, SBC was able to upgrade to LED lighting with no upfront cost, greatly improving lighting quality onsite, and incorporating sensor measures that will prolong the life of their new equipment. The lights look great, and visitors can see sustainability in action.
