Soap Box Derby

We recently had the opportunity to participate in the Soap Box Derby for the Rotary Club of Okotoks. We had a great time building our custom YESCO car! We were a proud platinum sponsor for the event and were able to sponsor two drivers.

LED Retrofit for Cushman Wakefield at Crowfoot Crossing

YESCO Calgary recently completed an LED Retrofit for Cushman Wakefield at Crowfoot Crossing, converting three multi-tenant sign pylons from High Output Fluorescent lighting to energy-efficient LED lighting.

This will save over 7500 watts per hour that the signs are operational resulting in significantly reduced energy costs with minimal maintenance as there are no longer bulbs to be changed.

Monthly savings give an estimated project payback of 3 years, after which an additional $475/month in savings will be realized. Environmentally this is a reduction of 23 metric tons of CO2 per year and the equivalent of removing 6 cars from the road.

LED Retrofits are cost-effective and proven investments that show immediate environmental benefits and long-term cost savings. Congratulations Cushman and Wakefield, and thank you for choosing YESCO Calgary!

Grey Eagle Casino Lighting Retrofit

Retrofits are a specialty of YESCO Calgary’s. When it came time for Grey Eagle Casino to repair their iconic sign, they knew they needed the best.

Upon arriving at the repair site, YESCO technicians realized that there were 40 high-output fluorescent tubes that required a replacement. Not only are 40 tubes a huge number, but it is also an expensive one. 

Knowing the value of both fluorescent and LED lighting, YESCO technicians worked with Grey Eagle Casino to find the most effective and affordable resolution.

In the end, Grey Eagle Casino opted for an LED retrofit, which offered them an 80% power savings while also reducing their maintenance requirements on the sign.
