Chicago suburb uses Bright Green Matrix LED signage

Sept. 23, 2009
Date Announced: 23 Sep 2009 After an 18 month search and competitive bid process, the thriving suburb of Downers Grove, Illinois, has chosen Bright Green Matrix TM to retrofit its parking garage signage.The town local government was looking for a low maintenance, environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional fluorescent tubes that were originally installed. The signage within the parking garage is illuminated 24 hours a day and provides a safe way finding route – failed tubes needed to be replaced immediately - a costly and labour intensive process.Bright Green Technology recommended its Bright Green Matrix™ system which will reduce the town’s energy bill by more than $10,000 each year and virtually eliminate maintenance due to the system’s 6 year lifetime (50,000 on-hours). The quality of light was another factor in the decision making process; Bright Green Matrix TM produces a much crisper white light when compared to the warm, yellow appearance of fluorescent tubes and notably improves visibility for drivers.CEO Andy Clark said, “We are delighted to be working with the town on this innovative project. Our LED system will make a real contribution towards the town’s environmental and cost reduction programs. It’s great that we can also help to improve the safety to hundreds of drivers who use the garage each day.”
