Bright Ideas Lighting Co recently upgraded the lights at Arbor Crossfit in Boise, Idaho. The facility had all T12 lights, mostly they were 8' lights. All of the lights in the workout areas were 8' T12, and offices and changing rooms were primarily 4' T12 fluorescent.
We upgraded the lights to T12 lights to new LED fixtures. In some areas we went 1 for 1 and in other were able to use LED of the LED strip fixtures than T12s. Light levels throughout the facility increased by approximately 30 percent. Wattage was cut approximately 70%.
We used Idaho Power's lighting incentive program to get incentive money for this project. Idaho Power lighting incentives paid for approximately 95% of the total cost of the project. This left the customer only a small out of pocket sum for all new LED lights.
The LED lights are expected to last at least 70,000 hours.
Besides the energy savings, the customer will also be saving on lighting maintenance costs for the next several years.
