Big4, the premier social networking forum for professionals and alumni of Accenture, Andersen, BearingPoint, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers PwC reports that Ernst & Young LLP recently announced completion of a lighting retrofit project in its US headquarters in New York City. reports that the approximately 650,000 useable square foot office space in Times Square supports approximately 5,800 Ernst & Young LLP employees. With the large employee population, the existing traditional lighting system consumed roughly 6.2 million kilowatt-hours annually. The new lighting system reduces the firm’s annual lighting energy use by 54%, and has improved the facility’s quality of light. Additionally, the project will reduce the firm’s lighting-related energy and maintenance costs by more than 50%, saving the firm $1M annually.

As one of New York City’s largest lighting retrofits, the project will cut the building’s annual energy use by approximately 2.9 million kilowatt-hours and reduce its CO2 emissions by approximately 2 million pounds.
