New York's Valhalla Station Reduces Lighting Energy Consumption By 75.9%
The County of Westchester, New York - took advantage of new energy saving LED lighting technology by commissioning Tri-State LED Inc to replace their existing lighting fixtures at Valhalla Station with state-of-the-art Seesmart (SEST) LED tube lights and high bays.
The new energy efficient Seesmart LED tube lights will only consume 15 watts of electricity compared to the 35 watts of the orginal compact fluorescent tubes (CFL's) while providing a better quality of light.
The new LED high bays will only consume 100 watts of power as compared to the 250 watt high pressure sodium lamps they are replacing. The new LED lighting uses considerably less wattage and provided us with brighter working surfaces. "We are much happier to be working in a well lit environment", said the tradesmen, at the Valhalla facility.Comprehensive Lighting Energy Audit
As part of our standard pre-sales process Tri-State LED performed a comprehensive lighting audit and analysis of the station's lighting infrastructure including the existing lighting's power consumption, maintenance cost and many other detailed factors. TriState then uses proprietary energy auditing software to calculate the proposed cost and demand of the new LED lighting as compared to the existing lighting in the facility.
A detailed report of all aspects of the lighting project is then provided to the client in a clear decisive format. This detailed report allows the client to accurately see the financial and environmental benefits before proceeding. Clients can then make an informed decision if LED lighting is the right solution for them. Furthermore, TriState LED provides this service to their clients at NO COST or OBLIGATION.
After reviewing the report Westchester County, established that LED lighting had the most viable return on investment (ROI) and was the best technology that met DPW's goals. The lighting replacement at Valhalla Power Station at 35 Woods Road White Plains New York reduced their existing lighting energy consumption by 75.9% resulting in a savings of $17,634.49 annually. The County of Westchester expects to recieve a complete ROI in 16 months making it a sound business decision.
As a local company TriState LED is proud to have been an integral part of the entire process for the project, from specification to savings calculation. With its vast experience in LED lighting and comprehensive product catalog, TriState was not only able to improve the lighting conditions to an energy-efficient source but also helped to complete an environmentally friendly project. "It is our hope that other local government agencies will follow suit and take advantage of the energy reductions available by utilizing our quality Seesmart LED product line", said Bob Ostrander, a principal at Tri-State LED.
