The architectural features and lighting designer painted on an impressive canvas of distinctive beauty that is unique in every room and all facilities of the club.

TOSCANA COUNTRY CLUB, Indian Wells, CA – Joseph Byrne, CEOE – Director of Engineering

Toscana Country Club Official Logo“I would highly recommend Strategic Energy Systems. SES recently did a retrofit of all 5,600 lights at Toscana Country Club in Indian Wells, California. The reason we decided to do the retrofit is because the rebate from Southern California Energy ,subsequent savings in electricity and the savings in labor along with the purchase of light bulbs every year. This project did not only cut our electricity by 450,000 kWh per year but had a return on investment of under two years. The reason we went with SES was the commitment to service and satisfaction which we felt every step of the way. The retrofit here was by no means an easy project! Nelson Scott consistently made sure things were managed well and adapted to all the areas of opportunity that arose during the project. I could not be more pleased with the product or the Company that gave 100 percent effort in making sure to meet Toscana Country Clubs high expectations and standards, Thanks SES!”

 

With over fifty six hundred light fixtures throughout the property in one of the most expensive places in the country for electricity, converting to LED technology would be an attractive proposition for the club only if the warm and buttery atmosphere can be duplicated with LED technology.

The SES lighting team spent hundreds of hours working with over thirty lines of lighting. It would take almost every line of lighting to come up with the right LED solution for each area of the club. The SES lighting team had its work cut out for them to come up with the right manufacturers for this LED retrofit.

One of the major factors is not only how the light works but how it performs. SES lighting only works with manufacturers that have low failure rates and products that have been comprehensively tested. When the project is complete, the maintenance activities should all come to an end with lighting.

On any given day prior to the retrofit, the staff at Toscana Country Club was replacing up to fifty lamps ballast and transformers. After the retrofit, the club has been able to redirect those activities to more meaningful areas of the private club experience.

“SES Lighting understood our ambient lighting, the design of our facility that was very important to be kept by our owner. The light temperatures, everything had and remained the same as it was because lighting is a huge deal…

It’s freed up tons of man hours. We’ve saved a hundred and sixty thousand kilowatt hours over four months. So your analysis was right on what you gave us for our return on investment. And if you put in the man hours as well as light bulbs savings purchase of a couple thousand dollars a month in life all done and we’re right on target to save what you told us we’d save…

I’m not a temperature expert, I don’t know that stuff. It was much better dealing with a company that’s very thorough and has a lot of knowledge. And you know, it was great having somebody else come out and get us every kind of possible bulb we can try until we find what is right for our facility and move forward with that…

If you’ve done a club like this, you’ll be able to do it anywhere. I mean, because this was a tough project. When you met the high expectations of everyone around here especially our owner, I mean.”

Toscana  Country Club turned over the project to SES lighting, who executed every aspect of the project that included installation, product procurement, creation and programming of the lighting patrol systems, project management and rebate administration.

Doing all aspects of the project right the first time it takes an attention to detail and time. The process from start to finish took approximately four months to complete and the outcome turned out to be a complete success for the membership and for the club.
