DETROIT, Mich.—As part of its efforts to reduce energy and carbon intensity by 20 percent from its 2010 baseline by 2020, General Motors is working with Starco Lighting to help reduce its lighting-related energy consumption across its global facilities. Since 2015, the automaker has worked with Starco to install tubular LED (TLED) lighting across 21 manufacturing and non-manufacturing facilities around the world, generating more than $3 million in annual energy cost savings.
“For the past three years, Starco has helped us realize increased energy efficiency and cost savings across our global facilities,” said Alfred Hildreth, global energy manager at General Motors. “Starco has consistently demonstrated a deep understanding of our broader goal of reducing energy intensity to achieve a more sustainable future, offering retrofit solutions that fit the different needs of our facilities around the world.”
Recently, General Motors installed over 25,000 Starco lamps at the company’s Renaissance Center headquarters. The automaker plans to retrofit other facilities with Starco’s TLEDs with capital spending using internal funds and energy performance contracting.
“Our efficacy, product life, appearance and complete product line were all items where we excelled over some other suppliers. We are excited to continue to collaborate with General Motors to help them with their energy conservation ambitions,” Starco Chief Business Officer John Calabro said.
Since becoming a General Motors global approved supplier, Starco products have been installed in 21 manufacturing and non-manufacturing warehouse sites, office buildings and plants.Tagged with General Motors, Starco
