Our efforts to replace older, less efficient light fixtures continue with the Panzer Fitness Center.

This project replaced 18 CFL* fixtures with 18 LED fixtures. While CFLs are about 70% more efficient than incandescent lighting, they contain mercury and require special handling for disposal as a hazardous material.

This upgrade will yield an annual savings of $2,260 ($1,418 in energy + $842 in maintenance) and 12,889 kWh.

The project was managed by the office of Capital Planning & Project Management with the contractor Big Shine Energy.

This relates directly to the Facilities Sustainability Plan Goal 01-3: Reduce campus-wide energy use intensity.
