This project perfectly illustrates the triple bottom-line benefits that we help deliver.

Titan LED announced today that its Regional State Manager Office in Wisconsin was recently selected by Guttormsen Recreation Center (GRC) in Kenosha, Wisconsin to design and implement the first phase of its conversion from fluorescent and incandescent fixtures, to state-of-the-art solid state LED lighting.
This first phase, which is now complete, involved replacing 64 8’ T12 fluorescent fixtures in the GRC’s game room with Titan LED’s made-in-the-USA energy efficient 36 Watt LED tubes. The brilliant and clear light emitted by the new LED tubes also made it possible to completely remove an additional 60 4’ fluorescent fixtures.
Completion of the first phase has already allowed the GRC to reduce its electrical use by 74% from 70,493 kWh to 18,181 kWh, which is expected to generate a savings of nearly $8,000 in annual electricity and maintenance costs. At the same time, the GRC expects to reduce its CO2 emissions by 69,575 pounds, which is the equivalent of taking 6.08 cars off the road per year, or planting 13.38 acres of trees.
"We are extremely pleased to have completed this project with Titan LED,” commented John Guttormsen, GRC’s Vice President and General Manager. “This was our first big step in lowering our rising energy costs, and we’re certain that this is the right path for the future of our center.”
“This project perfectly illustrates the triple bottom-line benefits that we help deliver,” commented Marc Ward of Titan LED. “First, there are the significant cost benefits thanks to lower energy use and reduced maintenance expenses. Second, there are performance benefits as our LEDs crisply, clearly and brightly illuminate a space like never before. Third, there are the environmental benefits due to the smaller ecological footprint. Add it up, and it’s easy to see why more and more facilities across Wisconsin and around the country are asking us to help them convert to state-of-the-art solid state LED lighting solutions.”
Titan LED is located at 11959 Discovery Court, Moorpark, California. For more information or media inquiries, contact John Ruscigno at (805) 523-7500 or John(at)titanled(dot)net.
