Lind Equipment’s LED Jobsite Surpasses 50 Gigawatt Hours in Electricity Savings

Lind Equipment


July 17, 2017

Lind Equipment has announced that their LED Jobsite system of purpose-built LED construction lighting has saved over 50 gigawatt-hours (50,000,000 kWh) of electricity for our community of general and electrical contractors.

To put this in perspective, saving 50,000,000 kWh of electricity is equal to:

  • Powering over 5,100 homes for a year,
  • Saving over 35,000 metric tons of CO2,
  • Removing over 7,400 cars from the road, and
  • Generating almost as much electricity as the country of Liechtenstein produces in a year.

The LED Jobsite system provide all temporary lighting on a construction site, from portable area lighting to room lighting to crane lighting.  The high-efficiency LED lights are easy to install, maintain and move as the project evolves over time.  When compared to traditional bulb-based lighting, the LED Jobsite can reduce electricity consumption by up to 90%.  In addition, the LED Jobsite lights are robust enough to be used again and again, which is in strong contrast to traditional bulb-based lighting which is generally thrown out at the end of a single project.

Contractors who adopt the LED Jobsite save dramatic amounts of electricity, but also save in labour requirements for installation and maintenance.  The LED Jobsite never requires bulb-changes, and installs using a plug and play system that is quick and easy.  LED Jobsites pay for themselves on the first project, and then continue to save money on every project after that.

“This milestone of 50 gigawatt-hours saved by the LED Jobsite is a fun one.” said Brian Astl, President of Lind Equipment “Not only because it has real meaningful impact for the planet and for our customers’ profitability, but also because this has been built from scratch in less than two years.  The LED Jobsite adoption has been tremendous and continues to grow quickly.”

Details of the LED Jobsite can be found on the Lind Equipment website at, which includes a live project gallery where you can see the real-time energy savings from current LED Jobsite projects.
