With the help of generous utility rebates, Seattle University saw a payback on their lighting efficiency investment in under one year.
Energy Industries achieved a 54% energy reduction by replacing 96 175-watt High Pressure Sodium fixtures with new T8 fixtures in Seattle University’s parking garage. Energy Industries also replaced incandescent exit signs with LED exit signs. The annual energy savings of 80,000 kWh is equivalent to $4,600. With a rebate of $10,905 from Seattle City Light, the payback for this project was just 0.8 years.
