JEC Energy Savings, an innovative lighting design company based in Richardson, Texas, has improved the lighting quality and performance of the parking garages at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas while at the same time providing dramatic energy savings for the hospital.
JEC recently installed induction lighting throughout the parking garages, replacing nearly 2,000 garage fixtures containing 10,000 hour metal halide bulbs with more efficient 100,000-hour JEC induction fluorescent bulbs; which could represent approximately 11 years of maintenance free operation.
“In a comparison done by Children’s Medical Center, induction lighting was chosen over LED lighting, both for its cost and for its performance,” said Mark Welker, vice president of sales and marketing for JEC Energy Savings. “The courtesy patrol also found it preferable because of the quality of light as well as the reduced glare.”
Induction lighting technology is gaining popularity, due not only to its longer life span but also to its environmentally friendly attributes which include less energy usage as well as less mercury usage per hour of operation.
“There are many aspects of induction lighting that make it more appealing to building owners,” said Carlos Ochoa, president of JEC Energy Savings. “Because it doesn’t have any moving parts, it lasts longer – and it is ideal for garage decks or any exterior lighting applications, where there tends to be a lot of vibration.” In addition, the lighting is white and isn’t plagued by the “buzzing” sound that accompanies traditional High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting systems.
The Children’s Medical Center project will reduce energy usage in their parking garages by nearly 50 percent, providing a savings in energy usage and maintenance of almost $300,000 per year. The installation also qualified the hospital for a rebate of more than $225,000 from Oncor.
“Induction lighting is one of the best choices out there for building owners today,” Ochoa said. “It’s good for retail establishments because of their high ceilings; it’s good for warehouses and street lights. You’ll find it in the underpasses at Texas Stadium and at Woodall Rodgers Freeway; it’s a good choice for any area where it’s going to be difficult – and therefore expensive – to replace a light bulb.”
