Let's look at a couple of hypothetical projects.

Car Dealership Lighting

Car dealerships depend on exterior lighting to showcase the cars they sell. An Independent Service Contractor explained the difference in efficiency between metal halide fixtures and LED fixtures to a car dealer. With incentives available from Mississippi Power, the dealer can move forward with the exterior lighting retrofit.

  • Annual kWh reduction - 285,696 kWh
  • Total fixtures replaced - 90
  • Estimated annual savings - $28,569
  • Total project incentive - $19,998
  • Payback period - 1.4 years

Parking Garage Lighting

Energy efficiency can result in long-term savings over a short period of time. A building manager wanted to retrofit his multi-story parking garage with better lighting to increase safety for customers. After talking to a Mississippi Power Independent Service Contractor and receiving a no-charge evaluation, the manager decided to proceed with the retrofit.

  • Annual kWh reduction - 376,976 kWh
  • Total fixtures replaced - 321
  • Estimated annual savings - $37,967
  • Total project incentive - $26,388
  • Payback period - less than 1 year

There is no cost to find out if you have hidden savings.
