RETAIL AND AUTOMOTIVE

Pole and Showroom Lighting

Interior lighting accounts for over 30% of a retail store’s energy usage. Lower your energy bills, increase property values and improve product visibility with a new showroom lighting system for retail stores, shopping centers, auto dealerships and other display areas. LED lights offer clean, bright white illumination to better showcase your product, reduce heat, improve the customer experience and ultimately increase sales.

Outdoor pole lighting systems for parking lots, auto dealerships and retail spaces attracts customers with a brighter, cleaner and safer environment. By replacing older metal halide and HPS lighting with newer LED, eHID and induction systems, you can significantly reduce your utility bills, enjoy maintenance savings, and increase sales of your products.

LED Case and Display Lighting

Perfect for refrigerated display cases, LED lighting uses up to 75 percent less energy than fluorescent lighting and performs better as the temperature drops. LED lights along with anti-sweat systems properly illuminate all shelves to improve product visibility, increase sales, and can be incorporated with occupancy controls for maximum savings. Using LED lighting also provides additional energy savings due to the fact that significantly less heat is produced, thus requiring less work from the refrigeration system.

Motors and Controls

The use of proper controls will ensure your system is operating at maximum efficiency levels and saving you money on utility bills and maintenance. Lighting controls such as occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting can also help businesses reduce ongoing energy costs while boosting productivity, profitability, and competitive advantage.

By upgrading motors to EC, a business owner can save up to $150 per fan annually on walk-in refrigerators, freezers, ice machines and display cases. By replacing old shaded pole and PSC motors, typical restaurants can save up to $2,000 per year and medium size grocery stores can save up to $18,000 per year.

Monterey can assist with an audit of your facility to determine the existing systems and propose the opportunities to increase energy-efficiency and reduce overall operating costs.

Solar

Solar power not only sends a responsible corporate message, it also reduces your energy dependence and helps promote sustainability in your space. While the payback period may be several years, a well-designed system will provide electricity for as long as decades and pay for itself many times over.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems are becoming popular in urban areas as our need for clean, renewable power increases. In addition to lowering your energy dependence, a roof-mounted solar system may also extend roof life, reduce air conditioning needs, and reduce heating bills.

EV Charging Stations

Electric vehicle charging in the United States is growing by an annual rate of 20% over the next five years. As legislation, federal grants and environmental regulation continuing to evolve, automotive manufacturers are responding with an influx of models that operate exclusively or through Hybrid motors on an electrical charge. Retail customers are increasingly requesting or demanding the ability to charge their cars while shopping. In this highly competitive marketplace, driving customers to your stores is more important than ever. Any retail environment will benefit from proactively providing this relatively inexpensive offering to customers.
