By upgrading the existing metal halide system with Cree 304 Series LED luminaires, patients and staff enjoy the newly renovated structure that provides dramatically improved visibility. In addition to superior illumination performance, facility owners appreciate the energy and maintenance savings delivered by the Cree LED lighting solution.
The project’s payback period was reduced by six months through use of a $23,000 incentive offered by local utility company Ameren Illinois and its ActOnEnergy® program. Plus, the long-lasting LED lighting will save more than $13,000 every year in reduced maintenance costs. With more than a decade of virtually maintenance-free performance, the LED lighting will lighten the load on hospital maintenance staff and ensure a more secure and consistent customer experience for Advocate BroMenn patients. According to Hill, the quality of light is better and more attractive than what the metal halide fixtures produced.
