Nestlé Purina’s manufacturing facility in Dunkirk, NY, recently received an LED lighting upgrade funded by a $125,000 National Grid energy efficiency incentive. The upgrade is expected to increase productivity, create a sustainable work environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,100 tons, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says is equivalent to the annual energy consumption of 114 U.S. homes.

For the upgrade, Purina replaced nearly 1,000 fluorescent lights, which were nearing the end of their lives, with LED lighting equipped with motion-sensor controls that will provide higher-quality light, safer work spaces and reduced maintenance costs for the facility.
