With benefits that span from the financial to the aesthetic to the academic, improved lighting is one of the best energy-efficiency investments an institution can make.
Over the past ten years, GreenerU has worked with more than a dozen schools to dramatically reduce their electricity costs through designing and installing energy-efficient LED lighting systems and controls. Our lighting specialist can help you create exactly the right lighting environments for different spaces—from classrooms and offices to athletic spaces and parking lots. Here are some examples of our work.
In 2019, GreenerU entered into a contract with Dean College to replace or retrofit all fluorescent, incandescent, and HID lighting systems on campus. This included, but is not limited to, more than 6,000 new LED fixtures, retrofit kits, and lamps. GreenerU also proposes the installation of 1,700 lighting controls throughout campus. This will include switch or ceiling-mounted occupancy sensors and fixture-mounted controls. This also included the installation of fixture-work performed mounted controls in existing LED retrofit kits. GreenerU was able to secure a $382,000 project incentive from National Grid.
GreenerU has worked with Brown University to develop and implement 27 customized LED lighting solutions across more than 4 million square feet of Brown’s campus since 2011, aided by $1.3 million in utility incentives. This work has led to energy savings of $828,000 for Brown each year, as well as 3,270 MTCO2e in avoided greenhouse gas emissions.
Since entering into a multi-year deep-energy retrofit project with the Yale University School of Medicine in 2014, GreenerU has secured more than $650,000 in utility incentives and performed lighting upgrades and retrofits in multiple interior and exterior spaces. Anticipated greenhouse gases avoided from this project are nearly 2,600 MTCO2e.
