Associated Grocers of New England (AG New England) upgraded its cold storage facility in its Pembroke, N.H., headquarters to the Digital Lumens Intelligent Digital Lumens before after AGNELighting System, saving 482,066 kWh annually. Leading Edge Design Group (LEDG), a Digital Lumens authorized partner, is AG New England’s energy efficiency partner on the project.

“Our freezer spaces have historically presented the greatest challenges for any lighting technology, forcing us to sacrifice light quality and performance due to the harsh environment,” says Bruce Courtois, facilities manager for AG New England. “Working with the Leading Edge Design Group team, we tested the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System in our facility, and found that it improved our light quality, drove down our energy use and gave us new levels of operational control.”

Leading Edge Design Group provided a comprehensive lighting and energy assessment of the 24x7 cold storage facility, and worked with the AG New England team to understand their target light levels and other performance metrics. They then designed an industrial lighting solution built around the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System, which they deployed. They worked with Public Service of New Hampshire, who provided an energy efficiency incentive under the NHSaves@Work program.

“We are delighted that AG New England has selected Digital Lumens to replace their fluorescent fixtures,” says Michael Feinstein, vice president of sales and marketing at Digital Lumens.  “The Leading Edge Design Group team has done an excellent job on this project, and we look forward to continued energy savings.”
