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!

    Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?

    There are many building codes, electrical codes, and emergency standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state and local regulations, and others that provide lighting guidelines and requirements for commercial and similar properties. These include for interior lighting, exterior lighting, and emergency lighting.
