Both Grainger and APPI Energy offer green solutions that could save your club money, reduce waste, and benefit the environment.
“At APPI Energy, our goal is to provide a greater savings to the member than the cost of the project, translating to a short ROI,” says Allen. “One of the greatest contributors to a short ROI is how many hours a client uses their lights. Health clubs are normally open long hours to provide convenient access to their customers and they generally have outdated high wattage lighting currently installed.”
APPI Energy’s turnkey LED program allows businesses to replace their inefficient lighting with new money saving LED lighting while APPI Energy manages the project end to end.
“Many clients can pay for the upgrade and also see savings in your budgeted funds every month,” Allen says. “We will perform a no-cost, no-obligation initial site survey to see if your organization is eligible for rebate incentives.
“In addition to LED retrofitting, energy efficiency assessments may also be completed, renewable energy generation, and solutions to assist your organization in increasing sustainability by sourcing renewable energy such as solar, wind, hydro power, or geothermal energy. An integrated energy assessment to determine the best option for you, may be best for you.”
At Grainger, the two leading green product categories are lighting and cleaning.
“Switching to energy-efficient lighting is one of the fastest ways to reduce energy costs,” says Metherd. “Grainger offers more than 5,800 lighting products in our EPP portfolio carrying trusted certifications such as Energy Star and Design Lights Consortium.”
Another option worth considering are green cleaning programs, which aim to clean effectively while minimizing negative impacts on health and the environment, according to Metherd.
“Grainger currently offers nearly 2,000 green cleaning products to help our customers implement their green cleaning programs,” he says.
