Job Highlights

CIR replaced 165 High Intensity Discharge (HID) high-bay fixtures with new, energy-efficient High Intensity Fluorescent fixtures in the gym and shop classroom areas.  Each of the new fixtures is equipped with Fixture Mounted Occupancy Sensors to ensure that they only operate when needed, further improving their energy-efficiency.  Even without the added savings of the occupancy sensors, Orleans/Niagara BOCES will be using less than half of the energy required by the old fixtures in these spaces.

In addition to the considerable energy savings afforded by the upgrades, there was a substantial improvement in lighting quantity and quality.  Faculty members were particularly impressed, stating that the new lighting created a more inviting and cheerful atmosphere.  Rebates received on the project helped to reduce the up-front costs of the lighting upgrades while providing Orleans/Niagara BOCES with a shorter payback period on their investment.

Orleans/Niagara BOCES was so pleased with the lighting improvements and energy savings that resulted from this project that they are looking to make similar upgrades at other BOCES facilities.
