Ford Invest Millions on LEDs
Ford Motor Co. isn’t just using LED bulbs on their headlights, but on their facilities as well. The automotive giant has shifted to the greener light bulb to light-up their plants.
Ford Motor Co. executives got a bright idea for energy savings -- and approved the installation of $25 million in new LED lighting at its facilities across America, including the Kentucky Truck Plant. The company announced Monday that it will install 25,000 new LED fixtures by the end of the year, planning to reduce energy use by 56 million kilowatt-hours. Ford expects to save $7 million in operating costs per year, said company spokesman Judd Templin. The Kentucky Truck plant will get more than 6,000 lighting units, or about 25 percent of the company's new lighting investment.
