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.
