GE’s Lumination™ LED Lighting Fixtures Continue to Lead the Indoor Lighting Evolution, From San Diego to Staffordshire
Energy Savings 101
When San Diego State University went in search of an energy-efficient education, it enrolled Lumination ET Series LED Luminaires for classroom lighting in three buildings on campus. GE’s Lumination 2′x2′ recessed LED troffers were installed in interactive classrooms in the Adams Humanities Building and in the Department of Journalism and Media Studies. San Diego State also constructed a new 3,000-square-foot anatomy lab using GE’s LED lighting solution that produces a perfectly even glow when lit, but appears completely free of a visible light source while off.
“The pressure to squeeze costs and operate responsibly while still maintaining a world-class learning environment has never been greater,” said Jeffrey Herr of San Diego State University facility services. “We’re seeing about a 50 percent energy improvement in rooms where we replaced old fluorescent fixtures with Lumination LED troffers for classroom lighting. Students have also commented that the classrooms feel more open and spacious since the switch. Overall it was a hassle-free transition from fluorescent and something we hope to replicate in other areas across campus in the years ahead.”
Bottom Shelf Benefits
Sainsbury’s, one of the largest supermarket chains in the United Kingdom, recently installed GE’s new Lumination EL Series LED Luminaires at its new store in Leek, Staffordshire. The LED lighting system promises to slash energy use by more than 50 percent and reduce maintenance costs while improving the shopping experience for customers by ensuring a uniform level of light across the store.
“We trialed the first installation of the new LED lighting in one of our local convenience stores in Scotland late last year and the initial findings were so positive that we decided to install it in our new Leek supermarket,” said Paul Crewe, Sainsbury’s head of sustainability. “We are confident that it will deliver an enhanced shopping experience as well as significant energy savings, helping us get a big step closer to our sustainability commitment.”
