Fitness Factory in Meridian Idaho is a fitness facility with lights running 24/7. The Meridian site had 4′ T8 and mostly 8′ T12 fluorescent lights. The T12 fixtures were removed and replaced with 48 watt LED strip fixtures. As a result, light levels increased while electricity usage was significantly reduced
The T8 fixtures were replaced with new 2×4 LED troffers. With this upgrade, we went from 112 watts per fixture down to 40 watts per fixture. We also changed the remaining incandescent lights to LED. Motion sensors were installed in bathrooms and side rooms to maximize energy savings.
The project was submitted through Idaho Power to get incentives for upgrades. For example, because we did occupancy sensors in appropriate areas, this project qualified for an extra 5% incentive over normal levels. This is what Idaho Power calls a “Complete Lighting Upgrade.” Bright Ideas Lighting handled all of the Idaho Power bureaucrats and forms for our customer.
Our installed LED lights also come with a five-year warranty. Security like this allows Fitness Factory to enjoy low maintenance costs for years to come.
