Samson Electrical Supply

Case Studies

Interior Office LED Lighting Retrofit

Samson helped design a custom LED lighting system with digital controls and supervised the installation.  The project yielded over 50% energy savings from the original technology and significant maintenance savings.

Parking Garage LED Lighting Retrofit

Samson supplied over 500 fixtures for a pharmaceutical company’s three parking garages.  The existing garages had 150W Metal Halide and the new LED fixtures consumed only 63W providing better lighting results than the original installation.  On top of the energy saved, significant maintenance savings will be realized as the new technology has a rated life of 100,000 hours while the existing only had a life of 20,000 hours.

5kV Substation Breaker Retrofit

Samson along with Square D Field Services retrofit 30 year old 5kV circuit breakers to new Masterpact breakers in an existing substation.  Benefits included upgrading to a reliable protective device while limiting the amount of time the campus was interrupted.  This was also done at a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire substation with significantly less downtime.

Data Center 26kV Service Upgrade

Samson design/built a 26kV substation for a data center to help meet its growing capacity needs.  Samson supplied the 26kV walk-in gear, two 15MVA pad mount transformers and a 15kV distribution lineup to feed the existing gear.

Campus Wide Intelligent Site Lighting System

Samson helped design a state of the art, LED site lighting system for an entire campus. Not only were there significant energy and maintenance savings over the traditional metal halide technology that was previously installed, it gave the owner the control they were looking for. Each fixture was equipped to be wirelessly controlled which allowed security to light a building pathway when an employee entered the campus after-hours.
