LLLC saves high school $13K annually in energy costs

A newly published case study about the installation of Luminaire Lighting Controls (LLLC) at a high school in Washington state predicts an annual savings of more than $13,000 in energy costs – all while creating a more comfortable space for students.

Facility management at Enumclaw High School – about an hour away from Seattle – was drawn to LLLC by the ease of installation and the level of customization that comes with LLLCs.

“We have received nothing but positive feedback,” said Enumclaw School District Facilities Manager Peter French. “Some of the spaces with the new fixtures are offices like counseling centers, for example, where we are able to tune the light level to what they want. Most are choosing less light, resulting in even more savings.”

Also, the facility management team found that many students preferred the new color temperature than with the previous fluorescent light that flickered or strobed. It’s especially made special education classrooms more comfortable for students with light sensitivities. The technology offers innovative settings that allows facility managers to simply walk around in the classroom with a tablet and adjust and dim the lighting levels that best suits students.

Enumclaw School District has since installed LLLC systems in five other buildings. Read more in the case study, which takes you on their journey from choosing the right lighting system to how students are reacting to the system.

BetterBricks – a commercial resource developed by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance – published the case study. It is available to download here.
