Hennessy Lexus of Gwinnett is known for providing world-class service to its customers purchasing or servicing a vehicle. An auto dealership’s greatest asset can be to highlight their vehicles with proper lighting, but it can also be very costly. Hennessy Lexus of Gwinnett wanted to update their lighting to increase sales, maximize safety, and improve energy efficiency. Chateau Energy Solutions was the perfect partner due to their experience working with auto dealerships and their history of making energy an asset for its customers.
Automobile dealerships can be an energy-intensive business. The best opportunity for significant energy savings can be found in an area of highest consumption – lighting. A LED lighting retrofit can increase lighting aesthetics and reduce energy consumption while still maintaining lighting quality, safety and security, and a superior customer experience.
Chateau Energy Solutions created a lighting design that saved energy but also accentuated the dealership vehicles. Chateau replaced and upgraded outdated fluorescent and metal halide fixtures with more than 300 LED luminaires. This included high output LED fixtures for the parking lot, service bays, car wash, and service drive. The LED lighting upgrade saved Hennessy thousands in energy savings annually and decreased energy consumption of the lighting by nearly 60% per year.
In addition to the improved illumination of the auto dealership, the lighting upgrade also reduced maintenance costs, deterred theft, and decreased its carbon footprint. The lighting upgrade provided an immediate impact for the car dealership.
