CASE STUDY


Audi Coral Springs, part of the family owned Qvale Automotive Group, opened its doors in 2010. Located in South Florida, their showroom is over 66,000 square feet and is the largest Audi showroom in the world. This family dynasty began in 1947 and now has nine locations nationwide, representing Audi, Land Rover, Jaguar, Honda, Porsche, Bentley, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Mazda, Chevrolet, Lotus and Subaru. Audi Coral Springs worked with LED Source速 originally regarding the difficulty in replacing failing lighting fixtures in their showroom. Not only was this concern resolved by adding long-lasting LED lighting, but after doing an in-depth energy audit, it revealed that the company would obtain substantial savings in their maintenance expenditures. This, along with the additional energy savings, made the decision to move forward with the retrofit an easy one. For more information, please visit www.audicoralsprings.com.


Using cutting-edge LED lighting technology, LED Source速 developed the eFFINION Track Head fixture specifically for this project. Installation was done in less than 6 hours and therefore, the project was completed in one evening. Annual lighting energy costs prior to the LED lighting retrofit were $5,396. Energy savings of 50.7% are expected with a total estimated annual savings, including maintenance costs, of $19,933.


before the problem High Energy Costs With the continued rising costs in energy consumption becoming a major factor, it was imperative to find a solution that would work within budget. Each of the 80 fixtures was using 77 Watts of power, which included the ballast. Lamp Failures Although CDM lamps have an average lifespan of 9000 hours, when combined with the ballasts, frequent failures were occurring. The results were dark areas and shadows throughout the showroom. Soaring Maintenance Costs The 66,000 square foot showroom boasts ceilings that range between 25 and 30 feet in height. This meant that in order to replace a single light, an outside maintenance person and special equipment was required. Inadequate Lighting Having a state-of-the-art showroom, it was important to improve color rendering, increase general lighting, provide tighter spot lighting for their vehicles and enhance architectural lighting.


after the solution Low Energy Consumption To lower energy costs, the eFFINION Track Head was the product of choice. This LED fixture uses only 38 Watts of power, thus reducing power consumption by 50.7% for each of the 80 fixtures. Custom Designed Fixtures To achieve the lighting requirements, eFFINION designed two fixtures; the 12 degree and 22 degree. Each of these lights were equipped with a matching track connector, which meant no added expense to replace the track and wiring. Low Maintenance The eFFINION Track Head fixture has an average life span of 64,000 hours and based upon information provided, is expected to last over 10 years before needing any further maintenance. This fixture comes with a 5 year limited warranty. The Savings With the combined reduction on both energy and maintenance costs, it is estimated that Audi could achieve a savings of $199,331 over the life of the LED fixtures.
