GE Shreveport Plant Finishes First Stage of Retrofit

General Electric energy manageGeneral Electric’s Shreveport plant has completed the first of seven phases of AEP Southwestern Electric Power Company’s (SWEPCO) Louisiana Commercial & Industrial Solutions efficiency program. The first phase, according to ArkLaTex, focused on LED retrofits. GE replaced 280 T5HO fluorescent high bays with 140 LEDs. The expected annual savings is $32,000.

The ongoing program will feature continued LED replacements, including the plant floor during the next phase. Office spaces and common areas will be tackled in later phases, the story says. The complete retrofit will save the plant about $171,000. The story says that GE earned an incentive check for the successful completion of the first phase.
