MCC Lighting Upgrade
Ameren UE gives Saint Louis University $24,995 for Lighting Upgrades
The Medical School Campus recently received a lighting upgrade courtesy of Facilities Services. Facilities Services received a rebate from Ameren UE for the energy efficiency improvements that were made.
The upgrades included:
Retrofitting 2,234 T-12 light fixtures to T-8's using 7,330 T-8 lamps and 2,234 electronic ballast.
Replacing 212 T-12 fixtures located in stairwells with 212 new T-8 occupancy sensing dimming fixtures.
Replacing 12 250w exterior wall pack fixtures with 12 exterior 60w LED down light wall fixtures.
A grand total of 2,458 light fixtures were involved!
This project's estimated annual energy savings for the rebate is 370,584 kWh. The estimated annual Ameren bill savings of $24,531.
The project was done 100% in-house with Facilities Services Maintenance A workers. Thanks to all that contributed:
Kevin Manley, Ethan Douglas, Dale Kuehn, Rick Jones, Art Lammert, Andy Zinck, Jay Nobles, Jim Denniger, John Bell, Dwayne Chandler, Jeff Strawn and Jim Buchanan.
Tip of the week: For more efficiency, replace all incandescent lights with LED or CFL lights.
