CASE STUDY | LED LIGHTING RETROFIT, ENERGY REFUND AUDIT & 179D ENERGY STUDY.
PROJECT: Automotive Supplier.
OPPORTUNITY: Zhongding USA Inc. operates as a distributor of rubber parts used by American automotive suppliers. The company was founded in 2001 and is based in Monroe, Michigan. Zhongding U.S.A., Inc. operates as a subsidiary of ZhongDing Group Co.Ltd.
CORE’s Green Building Team was hired back in June 2016 to retrofit their entire facility over to LED’s. Not only did this REDUCE their electricity bill by 50%, we also completed their Federal 179D Energy Certification, which generated an additional .60 / square foot in the form of a tax incentive. Finally, due to our level of cost saving experience, we noticed the company was being overcharged by both the local electricity and gas company every month. Our auditing team immediately filed for refunds going back four years.
SOLUTION: Within less than a month turnaround, our client was awarded a large refund that amounted into the tens of thousands of dollars.
