Midwest Collision Center is the First Auto Body Repair Facility in Michigan to "Go Green" by Replacing Every Light with LED Lights
Midwest Collision Center Inc. announces a major “green initiative” to replace every light on the property with LED lighting from Green Universal Solutions Co. (GUSCO). Midwest Collision Center is the first automotive body repair center in Michigan to make the change to replace every light with LED lighting.
Ed goes on to say, “It really was a no brain-er, a win-win-win for our decision to go LED. We win with all the savings... computed to be over $130,000 during first 10 years based on our current energy bills. Our employees win with better, cleaner, brighter, safer LED light. Our environment wins because when we save energy, we save all the pollutants that happen from creating that electricity.”
“I also appreciate the way that Steven Kuivenhoven, energy consultant from GUSCO, approached us... in that he had a conversation, he asked questions, listened to us share how our current lighting was inadequate, he asked for copies of our energy bills, took numerous light readings throughout the shop, then his findings were submitted and a proposal was created by the engineers at GUSCO. He then shared the proposal with us. It was very complete with all data we needed to make a decision,” says Ed and continues “GUSCO even fills out the consumers energy incentive paperwork for us... how great is that!”
Joe Brule, co-owner of Midwest Collision further states, “the cars themselves are being equipped with more and more LEDs. You’re starting to see LEDs everywhere. NOW was simply the best time to upgrade for many reasons including the uncertainty about future electric rates. Consumers Energy supports the upgrade with an incentive and additionally because GUSCO was able in their design to cut our energy 76% we will, according to our company accountant, be eligible for a 179D tax deduction.”
“We at Midwest are all anxious to experience the LED lighting with the scheduled installation being the first part of September. I’m sure our customers will appreciate our green initiative,” says Ed and emphatically states, “For the sake of our environment, your employees and your pocketbook, I would encourage every auto repair facility to contact Steven at GUSCO 269-779-6005 and learn what the savings are for your establishment.”
