Sitler’s Spotlight: Deery Automotive

At the beginning of 2019, Sitler’s had the chance to work with Deery Automotive to update their site’s lighting from the inside out. A large project to tackle, Sitler’s, with installation help from Stickfort Electric, helped transform their indoor showroom, as well as their lot lighting to make their cars shine even brighter while keeping their costs even lower.

Sitler’s Proposal

Installing LED lighting for a car dealership is a no-brainer. As a business with lights on in their lot and showroom nearly 24/7, electricity costs can be steep. Sitler’s top priorities for this project were:

  • Enhance vehicle displays in the showroom area
  • Improve work environment for shop area personnel
  • Reduce the costly maintenance of fluorescent lighting
  • Energy efficiency utility savings
  • Take advantage of LED product warranties

In order to achieve these goals, Sitler’s laid out a plan to retrofit the Deery showroom, lots, offices, hallways, and service garages with LED lighting, helping reduce wattage use by 70 percent. On top of the LED retrofits, they installed motion sensors, helping to save the dealership even more money. Lastly, Sitler’s projected 40+ percent of the project costs would be covered by utility rebates, with a simple payback plan for the project of little over a year.

Project Outcome and Testimonial
