Tesdell’s Work & Results

Tesdell Electric assisted in the design of the project as well as executed the one for one replacement of all pole mounted site lighting at Karl Chevrolet’s nearly 30 acre lot in Ankeny, IA.

Tesdell also installed Hubbell’s wiScape View, a graphical system management software platform to control, configure, and monitor the facility lighting.

The end results provided a $12,500 reduction in energy cost the first month, before controls were even initiated. The retrofit to LED also provided a roughly 12,000 savings in annual maintenance.
