Stouch Lighting provides East Lansdowne Borough retrofits for main building and community hall’s interior/ exterior lighting system

April 9, 2012
Date Announced: 09 Apr 2012 Background: East Lansdowne, founded in 1911, is a borough with a population of approximately 3,000 people located on the Eastern border of Delaware County, less than a mile from the city of Philadelphia. The Main Building and Community Hall serve many purposes for East Lansdowne’s community.East Lansdowne had existing F40T12- 4 Lamp fixtures, F40T12 – 2 U Lamp fixtures and F40T12 – 1 Lamp fixtures in the interior of the Main Building and Community Hall. These fixtures consumed more than18,000 kWh/year. Energy costs were well over $1,240 in the first year. With the new LED lighting and OptaLume fixtures over $15,600 will be saved in energy costs in a ten year time period. There will be a 64% reduction in energy usage based on eight hours of operation, five days a week. East Lansdowne Borough will save over $10,600 in maintenance costs over a ten year time period as well. The exterior of the buildings will also see reductions in energy and maintenance costs with the new LED wall packs and PAR 38 lamps. There will be a 65% reduction in energy usage, while saving 15,064 kWh per year. The exterior of the buildings will significantly reduce maintenance costs over the course of the LED fixtures lifetime.The Client: East Lansdowne, Delaware County, PennsylvaniaObjective: To provide brighter, crisper, light levels while reducing maintenance and energy costs and consumption both in the interior and exterior of the buildings.
