Noribachi and Intelligent Energy Light and Power overhaul USA Auto Group with LED lighting retrofit

April 17, 2015
HARBOR CITY, CA: Noribachi, a leading U.S.-based custom LED manufacturer for high output commercial and industrial lighting solutions and Intelligent Energy Light and Power, an electrical engineering and installation firm, shed new light on USA Auto Group with an LED lighting retrofit overhaul (

For the project, Noribachi engineered 95 outdoor and 500 interior fixtures as an LED lighting retrofit solution for USA Auto Group’s 20-plus-year-old 50,000 sq. ft. dealership in Temple Hills, Maryland. The project scope replaced high-intensity discharge (HID), fluorescent, and metal halide (MH) lamps with high efficiency, high brightness LED fixtures. Even the existing 1000W MH lamps, with a 1090W consumption rate and experiencing varying degrees of deterioration, were easily replaced with 210W LEDs throughout the dealership’s parking lot, resulting in a decrease of more than 80% power consumption.

“As a registered small business trade ally for Pepco, Maryland, we were able to get the local utility company to cover 95% of the entire installation cost for the customer,” said Steve Gerber, president, Intelligent Energy Light and Power. “We were able to reduce their entire lighting energy consumption by 72% while eliminating thousands of dollars in existing labor and lighting maintenance costs while dramatically improving the light quality.”

“This was a great LED lighting retrofit project all around,” said Esther M. Santos, COO, Noribachi. “We were not only able to custom engineer the LED lighting retrofit solution to improve the lighting quality throughout the entire dealership but based on Intelligent Energy Light and Power’s relationship with Pepco, this LED lighting installation has a positive short-term and long-term financial impact.”
