Telcs Lighting designed the Worlds most energy-efficient Lighting for an industrial facility. 

With an electrical consumption of only 4.8W/per sqm for illumination levels of 400-500lxwe reduced the electrical consumption by more than 50% when compared to equal brightness levels proposed by a competitor.
Telcs special lighting-design, saved the factory 450,000 USD annualy.

SunPower is a leading solar innovator globally, based in Silicone Valley. Their Solar Panels are the most efficient worldwide. And their factories are the most environmentally friendly factories built.
Telcs expertise in energy efficient lighting design made it the clear choice for  this project.

In order to create engineering feats never attempted before, TELCS lighting design used high performance computer systems. Every smallest detail had to be recreated in virtual 3D models. Out of hundreds of light fixtures the most efficient ones for specific tasks were identified and used for calculation in lighting models.
In a multitude of iterations, the models helped to fine-tune the location and model of each fixture, until the calculations showed perfect illumination levels at minimum consumption. A New world-record was achieved with a mix of some of the world’s most efficient light fixtures.

A sophisticated approach was applied on this project instead of the standard approach in industrial lighting. It was more complex but it was worth it. Less than half of the fixtures compared to the standard designs were used, with fewer bulbs and less maintenance.

A variety of reflectors, wattages, mounting heights, including tilting of fixtures were identified and combined into a perfectly working symbiosis of light.

A Mega-factory was born with superlatives:
Lot size: 50ha, production area: 6.8ha = 750,000 sq ft, a hallway of 425m length, one production room with 10,000sqm.
Office with 3ha‘s and a 5ha Mezzanine.
On top of this, Telcs lighting design needed to plan sports facilities, Restaurants, cafeterias, landscaped areas and jogging paths. All areas achieved Platinum LEED certification.

Telcs design set a new standard for lighting.
