How Auto Dealer Found Ways to Increase Energy Efficiency

Posted by Jimmy Hovey on Fri, Feb 25, 2011 @ 12:02 PM

Dave VanTol from Hovey Electric interviews Jeff Crippen, President of Crippen Auto Mall located in Lansing, MI.  Jeff and Dave discuss some of the unique challenges encountered on the project and how Hovey Electric was able to conquer those challenges.   

Crippen added new energy efficiency lighting to many areas of his facility including the service department, body shop, get ready area and exterior parking lot lighting. 

Although a bit reluctant at first, Jeff Crippen was interested in learning more about energy efficiency and eventually decided to pursue the project with Hovey Electric, Inc., Midland, MI.

Toward the end of the video, Jeff Crippen notes that his energy bill has dropped by almost 10,000 kwh per month.  That is a significant reduction in his energy cost.
