Mariner’s Point Golf Center in Foster City, California, will install high-performance Simply LEDs lighting throughout the course.

SimplyLEDs luminaires will replace metal halide lighting throughout the course, driving range, practice greens, and parking lot, reducing energy consumption over 70% while enhancing end-user experience.

Karma Energy, a socially-conscious energy development company based in Petaluma, CA, turned to SimplyLEDs for a solution worthy of this unique physical environment.

“There are top-tier LED brands with quality products, but the nature of this project required the full support that came only from a handful of U.S. based teams with U.S. based manufacturing,” said David Benson, CEO of Karma Energy, Inc.

LEDs in the news

In October, officials in West Haven, Connecticut, announced the town will save $338,000 per year in electrical costs as a result of switching to LED street lights. United Illuminating, an electric distribution company, is replacing the existing high-pressure sodium streetlights — at no cost to the city — to provide a more energy-efficient, cost-effective product.

Also last month, Howard University completed an exterior LED retrofit project to save money, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and improve safety on campus, the university announced. The project received funding from the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) and was completed by contractor GB Energie LED, an African-American, woman-owned business based in Washington, DC, that provides lighting for several sectors such as education, government, commercial, and industrial.
