Digital Lumens Intelligent LEDs Help Stone Brewing Facility Achieve Energy Savings

Digital Lumens today announced that Stone Brewing Co., the 10th largest craft brewery in the United States well known for its hop-centric beers, has deployed the Intelligent Lighting System within its new 69,000-square foot bottling and kegging addition in Escondido, CA.

The System is saving 86 percent in annual energy costs over T8 alternatives. Highly controllable and efficient, the Digital Lumens system was chosen for its superior lighting quality and illumination levels, massive energy savings, and substantial contribution to the brewery’s LEED Silver sustainability goal.

“As a craft brewer committed to the sustainability of our business operations, the Digital Lumens system is a no-compromise solution that delivers extraordinary energy savings, while providing a level of control over how lighting is used within our facility that is truly impressive,” said Joshua Lichtman, Associate Project Manager for Stone Brewing Co. “Both from an energy usage and quality perspective, it has completely changed our view of what is possible with lighting. As a result, we are looking at how we can deploy smart LED lighting across our operations.”

In addition to occupancy-driven savings, Stone is taking advantage of natural light from its facility’s many windows and skylights to further reduce energy usage, enabled by daylight harvesting sensors built into every Digital Lumens fixture. With an expected payback period of 1.77 years, the Digital Lumens system delivers on Stone Brewing Co.’s vision of a highly efficient lighting system that pays for itself within the first few years through energy savings.

“Intelligence-driven efficiency is enabling facilities traditionally burdened by high lighting-related energy costs to slash usage by up to 90 percent over HID and HIF alternatives, while gaining better, higher quality lighting to facilitate their business operations,” said Michael Feinstein, Digital Lumens Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The remarkable success of Intelligent LED lighting in a wide range of industrial applications — from manufacturing and warehousing to brewing and bottling — is fueling rapidly increasing adoption rates within the commercial and industrial sectors.”
