As our energy efficiency programs are set to end on September 30, 2020, we would like to shine a light on partners who have supported our energy efficiency efforts over the years.
Completed in two short weeks in November 2016, the GOJO® Wooster Campus project included the installation of lighting controls and indoor/outdoor LED (light-emitting diode) upgrades.
Interior HID (high-intensity discharge) lights were replaced with brighter LEDs, which improved color quality and enhanced illumination, making for a more efficient and safer work environment.
Outside, 115 LED wall-mounted lighting fixtures around the building perimeter replaced 1,000-watt HIDs, and several pole-mounted fixtures were converted to LEDs.
It’s a major upgrade that allowed us to run shipping and receiving operations across three shifts.

Lighting controls such as occupancy sensors, zone control and daylight dimming controls were also installed. The lights are monitored and controlled via Wi-Fi, which allows GOJO to detect any issues with fixtures before they fail, adding security and reliability to the system, as well as a big boost in overall efficiency.
So far, this hands-on approach to lighting is pumping out the savings very quickly—over 2.3 million kilowatt hours (kWh). With an annual energy savings of $185,273, the pennies add up.
