Graybar PowerSmart® Helps Asurion Maximize Cost Savings with LED Upgrades

before after

Asurion, LLC is a privately held company based in Nashville, Tennessee, that provides device protection and services for consumer electronics. The company operates in 18 countries and has 49 offices worldwide with 16,000 employees serving 290 million consumers.


In February 2015, Graybar teamed up with Nashville-based Stones River Electric to design a new site lighting system for Asurion’s Global Headquarters. Asurion wanted a solution that would maximize operational cost savings while utilizing LED technology, to assist in meeting their corporate energy reduction objectives.


Working closely with Stones River Electric, Graybar Lighting Business Development Managers Steve LoJacono and John Schuler arranged a number of product demonstrations and manufacturer visits before proposing a Graybar PowerSmart® solution that included LED products and controls from Acuity Brands Lithonia Lighting and Accendo Lighting for the headquarters facility.

The new design would focus on safety and security for staff while meeting Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) design criteria recommendations, Design Lights Consortium Standards and local energy codes.


Phase one of this project was completed in December 2015. Asurion expects an annual operating cost savings of $37,000, in addition to a substantial utility rebate from Tennessee Valley Authority.

Thanks to the upgrades, light levels of the parking lot have increased, while wattage readings show an overall 76 percent energy savings.

Lighting continuity and color were immensely enhanced. And, thanks to the high efficiencies of LED lighting there was a significant decrease in energy consumption for Asurion
