Lighting Retrofits Result in Financial Savings and Environmental Benefits

Posted on Tuesday April 19, 2016 |

FS Energy recently facilitated lighting upgrades for dozens of FirstService Residential managed properties. Replacing common area bulbs and fixtures with highly efficient, ENERGY STAR-qualified LED lighting technologies yields significant reductions in energy use and costs while delivering more aesthetically-pleasing illumination. Here are two case studies:


Bryant Park Tower




This 89-unit condominium, located at 100 West 39th Street in Manhattan, replaced or retrofit 445 fixtures. On top of a 65% reduction in electrical energy consumption, the entire cost of the project will be recouped in just over one year.




The Silk Building



This 90-unit condominium, located at 14 East 4th Street in Manhattan, replaced or retrofit 308 fixtures. On top of a 58% reduction in electrical energy consumption, the entire cost of the project will be recouped in just over one year.






Financial incentives for lighting efficiency projects are available. If your building is interested in reducing its costs and energy use through a lighting upgrade, please contact Kelly Dougherty of FS Energy at (212) 324-9035 or Kelly.Dougherty@fsenergyservices.com.
