Fairfield Residential is dedicated to sustainability, green living, and energy-efficiency, as outlined in their Living Green ® program. Locally, their energy-saving efforts have been paying off when it comes to lighting. The communities at Fenwick Apartments and 17 Barkley Apartments have been saving, more and more by the month, with incremental LED light bulb replacement.


The building engineer at Fenwick and 17 Barkley was charged with energy savings at his properties, while maintaining his monthly budget. Both properties provided ample opportunity for energy and financial savings with LED lamp replacement.

Working with a Bay Lighting specialist, the engineer provided his lamp list, and discussed where the bulbs were used and any desired changes. At Bay Lighting, our priority is proper illumination, so it was important to learn if there were any areas that required adjustments. Bay Lighting researched instant lighting discount opportunities on each bulb, to determine a chance for savings through the customer’s utility provider, Pepco. Discounts were incorporated into customer pricing, up front.

There are many benefits to this project, for each property and for the building engineer. In addition to the energy, financial, and maintenance savings, the engineer was left with a manageable job that he strategically executed each month. In addition, documentation provided by Bay Lighting outlines the financial and environmental impact of his results. A proud accomplishment!

    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.
