Relighting, Controls Bring Substantial Energy Savings

As part of its ongoing public-housing renovation efforts, the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority (MHPA) in 2010 installed more than 125 Lithonia Lighting® RTLED™ luminaires and more than 375 RT5D LED luminaires throughout a senior high-rise facility. The new LED lighting is being used in all the common areas, including hallways, stairwells, offices, kitchens and boiler rooms.

To achieve even greater energy efficiency, the MPHA also installed SensorSwitch® occupancy sensors, creating an intelligent lighting and controls solution. Since the installation, the senior facility has reduced the energy consumption associated with this lighting application by more than 77%, the carbon dioxide emissions by 76%, and the maintenance costs by 58%.
