Alset LED completes LED lighting upgrades in Chicagoland school district

Oct. 2, 2020

VERNON HILLS, IL — Alset LED, a division of NuWave, LLC, announced the completion of a significant LED lighting upgrade and renovation project in school buildings within Illinois’ Beach Park School District 3, including three schools, Beach Park Middle School, Howe, Newport, Kenneth Murphy, and Oak Crest Lake County.

Alset LED’s Round High Bay was installed in all three school locations and was selected based on the long-term durability of Alset’s polycarbonate lens that can take a hit from sporting equipment while improving the overall aesthetics in gyms—the Round High Bay features a frosted lens to reduce glare. The UL, DLC, and NSF certified fixture is instant on and features a wide light distribution and is suitable for use inside and outside and is perfect for large multifunction rooms, gymnasiums, and swimming pools.

According to Beach Park School District 3’s project manager, Dan Borski, “The goal was not only to reduce energy, but also improve the lighting levels. It was more important to achieve the best overall result for the schools, rather than just select light fixtures based on where a product was made or initial cost considerations, we sought to provide the best product that provided the best overall value.”

According to School Superintendent Dr. Craig Doster, “The new lighting is terrific, and we are looking forward to welcoming back the students to their improved schools after COVID-19 restrictions have been resolved.”

Beach Park School District 3 researched several creative ways to get the buildings in shape for another decade of use while reducing residents’ tax burden. The school district created a Request for Proposal for Guaranteed Energy Savings Contact in late 2019, seeking a single qualified provider to submit a 100% performance bond guaranteeing innovative solutions to provide energy conservation measures to meet or exceed the cost of the improvements over a specified term. The upgrade's lighting portion was awarded to ECM Holdings, LLC, based in Oshkosh, WI.

“Alset LED was pleased to work with both ECM Holdings and the District to meet their energy conservation goals while providing better overall illumination levels,” said Cindy Thomas, general manager of LED sales for Alset LED. “At Alset, we live by a ‘green’ philosophy, which ensures our materials are carefully selected, resulting in a product line that is safe for the environment that is both efficient and affordable,” added Thomas.
