Coming Fall 2012...
Parking lots #1 through #7 and all of the roadways on campus will undergo a large retrofit this fall. We are replacing 146 fixtures from the existing 400W Metal Halides with 140W light emitting diodes (LED). This project will save us 204,634 kWh annually (70% less than current streetlighting), resulting in avoided costs of approximately $14,000 each year. These new fixtures are expected to last 20 years, that's 5 times longer than the metal halides! The energy saved from this retrofit is enough electricity to power 23 Vancouver homes for one year!
