Case Study: Parking Lot Lighting
The Energy Management Department for a commercial office building set goals to reduce their utility and maintenance expenses through deploying new technologies and solutions within their building. With this in mind, CoolSys Energy Solutions engineered a lighting design to provide MORE LIGHT and BETTER LIGHT, while at the same time LOWERING ENERGY and MAINTENANCE EXPENSE. CoolSys Energy was asked to create a turnkey installation.
At the completion of the project, the parking lot had dramatically increased light levels, while also improving the security for its occupants and visitors. CoolSys Energy helped the customer capture a utility incentive of $11K. Additionally, the project achieved an annual energy savings of $12K, a maintenance savings of $2K, combined $14K for a simple payback of 2.6 years! This engineered solution provided much better quality lighting and safety for the building occupants and visitors, during the nighttime hours. The LED’s installed on the pole heads also dramatically reduced the lighting overflow, so that light isn’t wasted and spilling out over into the field areas that don’t require any lighting.
