The Opportunity

JLL desired to convert this LEED Gold Certified building from fluorescent to LED and capture maximum savings by installing sensors on each floor. JLL selected a product but were apprehensive about including the dimming feature on all lights. JLL selected two areas of focus, the building’s garage and stairwells, and contacted Bay Lighting for assistance.

Bay Lighting Solution

Samples were installed to ensure customer satisfaction with the overall appearance and light levels of each application. The samples also allowed the customer to see dimming first hand and gauge how their tenants reacted to the lighting controls. Fixtures were networkable and installed in zones for optimum energy savings.

The Benefits

Was color temperature taken into consideration throughout the building? Are the lights in the fitness room the same brightness as those in the lobby?

What We Used

A networkable system is set up in zones. Once one light detects motion, it triggers all lights in the zone to become active. Pictured above is the ILP FZ Low Profile Strip lighting.

The Results

Bay Lighting supplied a sample LED fixture to test in the garage at One Thomas Circle. After converting to LED, the facility will save $10,066.75 on their utility bill, in the garage, over the course of one year.

    In April, the Department of Energy finalized two rules requiring manufactures to sell energy-efficient lightbulbs. This means older, inefficient lightbulbs that don’t meet the new standards can no longer be manufactured and sold. The primary purposes for these rules are to drive down electricity use, save consumers money, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

    It’s estimated that schools spend billions of dollars annually on energy, and it’s often the second-highest operating expenditure (following personnel costs). Each year, these expenses continue to increase while budgets often decrease, leading educators to look for ways to save money throughout the year. One way is by making some lighting updates that are more energy efficient, therefore saving money on energy bills. LED uses up to 75% less energy than conventional lighting systems, which keeps dollars in your budget for other important things.
