Grandons Car Sales Glanmire is one of the longest established Toyota dealerships in Ireland, offering clients a superb range of new and used Toyota cars across Cork City & County. Grandons MACE & Grandons CENTRA Glanmire are also part of the Grandons Group.
In Sept 2015 Grandons Toyota requested IMPACT Energy visit & audit the 3 Glanmire sites to compile an energy reduction solution to energy efficient LED technology.
Grandons implemented the entire IMPACT lighting upgrade proposal which generated 70,000kwh savings in the two shops & 125,000kwh savings in the Car showrooms Offices & Garage. Once the LED upgrade was installed fully, IMPACT Energy submitted the entire Grandon 3 site LED project for a Carbon Credit Grant, which recouped +25% of the entire LED Project cost.
The LED Project:
Grandons Toyota upgraded all of the 58W fluorescent tubes (=72W inc Ballast) to 18W LED. The Car Showroom lighting was upgraded by retrofitting the existing 400W M/H lamps with 80W LED SON lamps.
All twin PL ceiling fittings (=64W inc ballast) were replaced with 12W LED down-lighters.
Grandons Garage CENTRA Shop & Grandons MACE Glanmire: The existing fluorescent, PL & M/H lighting at both Garage shops were upgraded with ENERGYS New-Vision LED products. The LED upgrade achieved 200,000 Kwh savings from the 3 Grandon premises. Products come with a 5 YEAR Guaranteed Warranty.
In May 2016 IMPACT Energy Solutions completed an LED upgrade for three of our facilities inc Grandons Toyota, Grandons MACE & Grandons CENTRA. The lighting upgrade product included replacing & retrofitting all Fluorescent, PL & M/H fittings with energy efficient LED luminaires. Apart from a demo & subsequent trial of a few New-Vision LED products, we were impressed with the attention to detail IMPACT Energy Solutions had to offer. The overall LED upgrade will have a less than a 2 Year Payback, and has brightened up our premises no end. We have also eliminated our maintenance costs for years to come. Once the LED upgrade was installed and completed, many people commented on how great the new lighting is. IMPACT Energy Solutions then submitted the 3 site LED project for a Carbon Credit Grant on behalf of Grandons, and we were delighted to be reimbursed with +25% of the LED project cost. We will have no problem recommending IMPACT Energy Solution for their products & services.
