NC School Doesn’t Have to Leave the Lights On with New LEDs
Ten IBH low bay LED luminaires improved foot-candle levels in Dobson Elementary School’s 5,400 sq-foot gymnasium by more than 50 percent. The conversion from metal halide fixtures is part of the school district’s energy education program.
Because the metal halide fixtures require a significant amount of time to achieve full illumination, the school allowed the lights to remain on throughout the entire day, even when the gym was not in use. However, the new LED fixtures instantly illuminate when switched on, enabling the school to turn lights off and reduce energy consumption when the gym is unoccupied.
The Surry County School District plans to adopt LED lighting in nine additional elementary, middle and high schools.
