Stafford Storage in Stafford, Conn., has completed a lighting retrofit of its 50,000-square-foot facility. The new lighting, energy-efficient linear LEDs, will cut down on the facility’s overhead expenses. The facility has 334 units and offers 24-hour, seven-day-a-week access.
Green Garage Lighting of Hartford, Conn., installed the fixtures. The company recommended the 15-watt linear Eagle tube as a replacement, which use only 15 watts of energy and will last up to 80,000 hours in this type of facility. It equates to more than nine years of usage.
In addition to lasting years longer than the former lighting, the LED lights use significantly less energy. Stafford Storage is expecting to save up to 60 percent on its lighting costs, greatly reducing the facility’s energy bill.
