Poor lighting, very energy inefficient, generated high content mercury florescent lamps for disposal, PCB containing light ballasts.

P2 Application:

Facility implemented Cooper Green Lights Program during 1999. Installed motion sensing light switches to automatically shut off lights when no one is in the room, in non-essential areas such as offices, restrooms and warehouses.

Environmental Benefits:

Achieved better illumination, better working condition, enhanced safety, reduced disposal costs for mercury-containing lamps, PCB ballasts, and universal wastes.

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

Three year payback projected. First year cost savings in energy 600,00 kWhr which equals approximately $300,000.00 per year in energy savings.
