This turnkey solution targeted the replacement of high bay lighting fixtures with energy efficient LEDs. To date, more than 25 arenas, public works garages, water treatment plants and pools have upgraded their lighting to LEDs under the service. This represents a combined annual savings of $185,000.

Upgrading to LEDs results in reduced energy consumption, helping organizations save money on energy and maintenance cost. Other value added benefits to the service include photometric design, incentive applications and project management.  However, the service is not limited to high bay lighting.

According to the Office of Energy Efficiency (Natural Resources Canada), lighting contributes to 11% of energy consumption in commercial/institutional buildings. It ranks third highest on the list after space heating and auxiliary equipment.

Therefore converting your office lights to LED has a significant impact on your overall energy consumption. In addition, it enhances your municipal energy reporting targets in compliance with Ontario Regulation 397/11.

The new Facility Lighting Service will replace the Recreation Facility LED Lighting Service and feature a wider range of interior and office lighting solutions, as well as the same LED high bay fixtures previously offered.  Conrad Lighting Solutions will continue to provide the great service we have all come to expect under this program.  Perhaps the best part is you don’t have to wait for the formal announcement in the summer!  Contact Christian Tham at ctham@amo.on.ca today to be the first in line for what promises to be a high demand service.
