EarthTronics Deliver More Light, Less Electricity for Sauce Pizza and Wine

MUSKEGON, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sauce Pizza and Wine, with 11 neighborhood eateries for fast casual
dining and online ordering in Arizona, recently switched to Energy Star
lamps from EarthTronics to save substantial energy, while maintaining a
warm inviting dining environment.

Scott Kilpatrick, CEO and President of Sauce Pizza and Wine, said, “We
wanted to reduce our electricity consumption, lower our maintenance
costs, and maintain the control of light levels at each of our
locations. The switch to LEDs enables us to meet those goals and allows
us to concentrate on our food and our guests.”

Although Sauce locations range from 2,500 to 3,500 square foot, the
“front of the house” contains the dining room and open kitchen, while
the back of the restaurants include the dishwasher, equipment and
inventory. To find appropriate lighting for the restaurants, Sauce met
with Don Bartelt, senior energy advisor for Energy Efficiency (EE) Pros,
who recommended Energy Star rated MR16 and BR30 EarthBulb LEDs from
EarthTronics for the dining rooms. The six-watt, MR16 EarthBulb LED
bulb provides 3000K color of light with a 38 degree beam angle, easily
replacing the 50 watt halogen MR16 product being used. It is ideal for
use in dimming recessed lighting, track lighting and display lighting
applications, and the high power LED performs for 25,000 hours and
provides 85 percent energy savings. The eight-watt, BR30 LED replaced 65
watt incandescent and is also is rated to last 25,000 hours, also
provides 85 percent energy savings and maintain the light levels to
provide warm, comfortable restaurant atmosphere.

In the open kitchen area where guests can watch the chefs in action,
seven-watt PAR20 and seventeen-watt PAR38 EarthBulb LED floodlights were
selected and installed to optimize the visual experience. These PAR
lamps render the entire visible spectrum, with a brilliant color
rendering index of greater than 90. The EarthBulb LED PAR20 and PAR38
lamps deliver 500 and 1200 lumens, last 25,000 hours and save more than
80 percent in energy cost providing an excellent replacement for 50 and
120 watt incandescent and halogen floodlights. The LED PAR lamps are
designed with the same form factor and beam pattern as the PAR lamps
that they are replacing. In addition, they feature a durable lightweight
plastic design with an integral aluminum cooling system that reduces
stress on fixture components.

In Sauce’s “back of the house,” energy-efficient linear T8 LED tubes
from EarthTronics replaced existing fluorescent tubes. These Design
Light Consortium (DLC)-listed bulbs feature nearly 50 percent energy
savings and a glass tube construction that ensures proper system cooling
to support high lumen maintenance over the 50,000-hour rated life of the
