Memorial Sloan-Kettering reduced its energy cost by almost 57 percent, awarding the hospital a $22,000 rebate from energy consumption company Con Edison
Simi Valley, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
LED lighting manufacturer Seesmart Technologies, Inc. (OTC: SEST.PK) announced today the completion of a retrofit project that replaced nearly 700 fixtures at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The hospital is one of the world’s premier cancer centers and combines excellent patient care with leading research and educational programs.
By switching from fluorescent T8s and T12s to Seesmart T8s in the facility’s parking garage, the hospital’s energy cost has been reduced by almost 57 percent. Memorial Sloan-Kettering also slashed its energy consumption by 160,000 kWh annually, awarding the hospital a $22,000 rebate from energy company Con Edison. The Center anticipates a full return on investment within two years.
Following its work with Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Seesmart was commissioned by two neighboring organizations – one residential center and one medical center – to help transition from low-efficiency fluorescent lights to sustainable Seesmart LED tube lights.
“The return on investment for this project will come not just from the $2,500 per month in energy savings, but also from lower maintenance costs and less facility waste,” said Kenneth Ames, CEO of Seesmart Technologies, Inc. “The long lifespan of Seesmart products coupled with available government rebates for sustainable investments make the return on investment instantaneous for Memorial Sloan-Kettering.”
