A recent success story was a project in St. Lawrence County, NY which was faced with aging infrastructure and rising utility costs. The county needed to complete construction of a variety of improvements to address their needs. Much of this work had to be completed in a short timeframe to address urgent deficiencies and rising maintenance costs.
Wendel worked with the county to secure over $280,000 in state and utility incentives, delivering St. Lawrence County’s project for $2.42 million with a savings of nearly $800,000 or 25% from the typical design build approach.

Accredited by NAESCO since 2014, Ohio-based Energy Focus is a lighting company that engineers LED lighting technologies and solutions. With over three decades of experience in the lighting industry, they have been on the forefront of the LED lighting revolution.
Speaking on Energy Focus' accreditation, Chairman and CEO, James Tu said,"We're absolutely honored and gratified to have received the accreditation by the most prestigious and impactful association for energy services in America. In collaboration with all NAESCO members, we will continue to push the frontiers of technological innovations and advocacy efforts for LED lighting across the country."
Energy Focus announced last fall that its first commercial installation of tubular LEDs (TLED) had reached a 5-year anniversary. The project was a retrofit for Truline Industries, a precision machine parts manufacturer whose clients include Boeing, Airbus, United Technologies and Eaton.
Truline virtually eliminated the need for labor costs of frequent lamp replacements associated with fluorescent lighting, as only 2 out of 930 TLEDs burnt out during the first five years. The two companies marked the TLED installation milestone with a joint-issued Customer Success Story video, which can be viewed here.
