Stouch Lighting, a lighting distributor specializing in LED lighting and energy efficient lighting products, announces the completion of a lighting retrofit project for East Norriton Township, Pennsylvania, projected to save the township $8,698 per year in energy costs.
In addition to the energy savings, the township anticipates the lighting retrofit saving an almost equal amount of $8,020 per year in lighting-maintenance related costs for replacing failed lamps, ballasts and fixtures — bringing the total annual savings to over $16,000 annually.
The lighting retrofit includes replacing the municipal building´s indoor spot lights and exit signs, and outdoor lighting wall-packs and floodlights with energy efficient LED lights. In addition it includes replacing old lighting technology, 4-lamp,T-12 fluorescent lamps and fixtures with more efficient 2-lamp,T-8 florescent lamp fixtures combined with OptaLume (a reflective substrate lining) that provides a 70% reduction in energy consumption.
East Norriton Township Manager, Don Delamater, notes, “Stouch Lighting´s expertise in energy efficient and LED lighting technology was evident the first time we spoke with them. Their recommendations included a payback analysis on total savings that showed investment payback would be less than a year-and-a-half. And that included them handling installation as well.”
The lighting retrofit also supports East Norriton Township´s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The retrofit will save an estimated 109,266 pounds of CO2 emissions annually. That equates to 319 trees saved per year.
