Green Light Energy Expands Relationship with IHOP

Since 2012, Green Light Energy has been helping IHOP franchisees substantially reduce their cost of providing lighting, while simultaneously significantly improving the amount of light provided in their parking lot areas.  More specifically, Green Light Energy has provided 300-watt high output induction fixtures to replace the 1,000 watt metal halide fixtures traditionally used by IHOP franchisees.

After three years of evaluation of the installed fixtures, IHOP franchisees have been realizing substantial cost savings and have been accelerating the rate of change over to lights provided by Green Light  Energy.  

Here is a recent testimonial we received in this regard this month (May 2015) from the general manager of an IHOP in Atlanta:

I am writing to thank you and your company for recommending induction lighting to me for my store’s parking lot on Thornton Road in Lithia Springs, GA.  As you know, my IHOP franchise is in a high traffic area near an interstate, and a well lit parking lot is important to attract customers and to enable them to feel safe when they visit us.  Your product has helped us improve our lighting and lower our costs at the same time.

You recommended that we replace our 1,000 watt metal halide fixtures with 600 watts of induction.  As you know, beginning in March 2011, we had to initially employ a piecemeal approach to implement your suggestion because of budget constraints, replacing some of the 1,000 watt metal halide lamps with just one 300 watt induction lamp from your company (instead of two).  Still, I think one of these 300 watt induction lamps nearly replaced the 1,000 watts of metal halide that we were running; I am very happy with them.

I am particularly happy about the longevity profile of induction; for years I have been paying an electrician $300-$400 nearly every month to change out a bulb and/or ballast in our old metal halide pole-mounted light fixtures; those old lights would also fade and flicker and were never uniform.  With the induction system and its 100,000 hour life, I no longer have the maintenance cost and the uniformity of light makes our store look fantastic at night.   I am glad that there is a ten-year warranty to protect my store’s investment.  My regional management shares these sentiments.  We have definitely saved thousands of dollars so far with the lighting you provided, while providing more light to our customers than we used to have.   

Our most recent purchase of lighting from you this past month will be followed by additional orders as we complete our changeover to what you have recommended.

Thank you.
