High Efficiency Fixtures
Wash at Joe's has taken the voluntary initiative to use High Efficiency Light Fixtures and Variable Frequency Drive motors when ever possible.
The new bay lights at Conklin Ave are high efficiency Super T8 technology. In addition to provide a very high quality white light, they also use up to 50% less energy than typical metal halide fixtures. We have started the conversion to these new fixtures at the Front St location. The conversion will continue until all fixtures have been replaced.
Both locations also use Variable Frequency Drive (VFDs) motor starters where ever possible. In very simple terms, VFDs start electric motors gradually instead of an immediate ‘hard’ start. This gradual ‘ramp up’ results in lower energy consumption. Click here to read more about VFDs.
