TSA Headquarters Represents One of the Largest LED Retrofit Projects of an Existing Building in the U.S.

LOS ANGELES, CA: Noribachi, a leading U.S.-based custom LED manufacturer for high output commercial and industrial solutions along with Intelligent Energy Light and Power, an electrical engineering and installation firm, are proud to announce the completion of the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) Headquarters Energy Efficient Project.

The TSA HQ Energy Efficiency Project was a 3-year, 4-phase sustainability project focused on its 550,000 sq. ft. building and 2-level parking garage. The completed installation represents one of the largest LED retrofit projects of an existing building in the U.S.

“Currently, we are on track to save $550,000 in 2014 electrical expenses which exceeded forecasts given a low $.08/kWh government energy use rate. Plus, the cost avoidance in replacement lamps/ballast parts will be over $40,000 this year. The project produced $1.08 per building sq. ft. in total savings and it achieved a 31% reduction in consumption using several different efficiency technologies,” stated John Holloway, Director, Real Estate and Facilities, TSA. With Mr. Holloway’s continued efforts in energy initiatives, TSA HQ was able to achieve an Energy Star rating, a LEED Silver rating and a “Green Innovation” Dept. Homeland Security award.

“Another exciting part of this project was that it was completed on a 29-year old building as an efficiency retrofit project rather than a costly new construction,” said Steve Gerber, President, Intelligent Energy Light and Power. “It demonstrates that cost avoidances can be captured through careful planning of new energy efficiency technologies in older buildings.”

Part of the customized solution designed and installed by Intelligent Energy Light and Power featured LED retrofits for 6,300 interior fluorescent fixtures and 400 exterior high intensity discharge fixtures in the existing building as well as the installation of LED retrofits and occupancy sensors throughout the parking garage.

“This was a perfect project for Noribachi,” said Esther M. Santos, COO, Noribachi. “We worked with a great partner, Intelligent Energy Light and Power, and applied our Bespoke Engineered and Specifically Tailored manufacturing process to deliver both indoor and outdoor LED retrofits and occupancy sensors based on the TSA’s specific requirements. The new LED lighting solutions not only enhanced overall lighting and energy efficiency but reduced energy, maintenance and replacement costs.”
