Eventually, all garages will have the new and more efficient lighting.
The new lights have a lamp life of 42,000 hours. They use 14,436 kilowatt hours of energy per month, which is 33,444 fewer kilowatt hours than the old light system. The new lights also improve visibility for students and visitors.
The cost of the Garage H light replacement project, $51,384, will be recouped in 1.2 years.
