Apartment Parking Garage
San Francisco, CA
High end apartment complex in San Francisco, California, looking to reduce energy usage and the staggering maintenance costs of re-lamping T5HO fluorescents, upgrades its existing strips to a more efficient LED solution. Low maintenance costs, long useful life and good light quality peaked management interest to this state-of-the-art LED Technology.
FSC Lighting’s L8500 Series Strip Fixture replaced the 117-watt fluorescent strips throughout the parking garage, dropping lighting costs by 82%. Following the replacement of 117-watt fluorescent lamps with FSC’s 28 watt L8500 Series strip, this major parking operator was able to use 200,358 fewer kilowatt hours (kWh) per year, savings of approximately $32,057 annually based on $0.16 kWh rate and 24 hours operation a day. The fixture also step-dims the L-BAR to 25% of full light output for approximately 30% of the day.
