Access Fixtures achieved substantial energy savings for the Ivy Corset Building by retrofitting high pressure sodium wall packs with energy-efficient LED lamps. As compared to the previous HID lamps and ballasts, the retrofitted wall packs now sport better visibility and emit white light while reducing energy use by 75%. By retrofitting the existing wall packs, the brick building maintains some of its historical elements. Read more about the LED retrofit and thoughts from CEO of Access Fixtures, Steven Rothschild, in the recent press release.
Access Fixtures retrofitted six wall packs on the front of the building using 11 watt A21 style LED lamps. Previously, the wall packs used 35 watt high pressure sodium (HPS) lamps and ballasts that totaled 43 watts of energy per wall pack. Assuming the luminaires are on eight hours a day/seven days a week, the retrofit will save $14.08 per wall pack for a total savings of $84.48 per year. Payback for the initial cost of the LED retrofit is less than 1.5 years including labor. Because the LEDs won’t have to be replaced for 17 years, the LED wall pack retrofit will provide a total energy savings of $1,436 over the lifetime of the LED lamps.
