Vanderbilt University’s New LED lights Save 34 metric Tons of GHG Emissions
Dec 27, 2010 A recent upgrade to the lighting in Buttrick Hall, a classroom building on Vanderbilt University’s campus, saves both money and the environment.
The Plant Operations crew replaced 150 50-watt MR-16 halogen light bulbs with 6-watt light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs. The new LED lights will save 57,000 kilowatt hours per year and avoid producing approximately 34 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year.
In addition to the replacements at Buttrick Hall, Plant Operations has just completed a lighting retrofit of the perimeter of the Stevenson Center Math Building, replacing around 70 incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs. They are in the process of doing the same to the perimeter lighting in the Stevenson Science and Engineering Library courtyard and upgrading the pole lights on campus to LED bulbs.
