Success Story – Tea Garden

Tea Garden Takes on LED Lighting at Multiple Locations

Tea GardenWith five locations throughout the Twin Cities, specialty tea bar, Tea Garden, decided to immediately upgrade from incandescent bulbs to LED lighting at two of their locations after seeing an initial cost savings analysis presented by Energy Smart. “We were not aware that there were rebates available that would make the initial investment easier for us,” Says Nick. In addition to reducing energy consumption by 19,673 kilowatt hours and saving $689 annually, the company is replacing bulbs less frequently, allowing staff to focus on other maintenance issues. Nick explains, “Not only are we reducing electricity use, but we are saving money in the long run and spending less time replacing light bulbs.” The local chain plans to continue working with Energy Smart to upgrade the lighting at the remaining locations.
