Deco Lighting’s Induction Lighting at Mariani Fruit Packing Company Saves 60% in Energy to Go Green


When Mariani Packing Company of Vacaville, CA, the largest family-owned global producer of dried fruit, sought to “go green” with new energy saving lighting for their facilities, they chose Deco Lighting. New Induction high bay luminaires with integral sensors from Deco Lighting save 50% in utility energy costs, additional 10%+ savings through automatic low level light switching, and 100,000 hour lamp life for substantial long term maintenance savings.

The Mariani Packing Company, known for its innovation in using sustainable solar power for their facilities, selected Deco Lighting as a leading manufacturer with the latest green technology lighting solutions. Deco Lighting replaced existing HID (high intensity discharge) high bay fixtures with their new D980i Induction high bay luminaires. Equivalent light levels were achieved with half the wattage, resulting in immediate 50% savings in utility energy costs. Additional 10% or more energy savings are achieved by reducing light levels when areas are not occupied. The Deco luminaires are equipped with motion sensors to automatically switch the lighting to low energy saving levels when factory personnel are not present. Due to the extraordinary 100,000 hour service life of Induction lamps, substantial long term maintenance savings are also achieved. Deco Induction fixtures at the Mariani facilities will save on labor and material costs of four cycles of relamping versus the HID lighting system. The Deco Lighting energy saving and environmentally friendly Induction lighting system provides Mariani Packing Company with a positive contribution in their commitment to go green, reduce the carbon footprint of their facilities, and contribute to the reduction of global warming.

Induction lighting offers distinct advantages for grocery warehouses, food processing plants, refrigeration and cold storage facilties. Induction provides similar light levels at half the wattage of HID lamps, typically resulting in 50% utility energy savings. The 100,000 hour service life of Induction is three to ten times longer than typical HID and fluorescent lighting systems, and twice as long as LED lighting. This lifespan saves on relamping costs and is most advantageous for high ceiling, difficult to access fixture locations in factories and warehouses.
The excellent 90 CRI color of Induction lighting is ideal for food processing and warehousing for superior visibility of merchandise. Excellent low temperature performance with minus 40° C/F starting makes Induction the preferred choice for refrigeration and cold storage applications.
