The Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix has installed more than 3,000 LEDs in its economy parking garage, according to KTAR. The brightness of the new bulbs makes it possible to reduce the number of fixtures by 71, according to the story.
The story said that the bulbs have a 7- to 10-year warrantee and, thus, are likely to last longer than legacy bulbs. The move in the parking garage follows an LED change out in the south air cargo facility and the executive terminal. The story says that some of the runway lights are to be changed, followed by work on a second garage and a road to the facility. Funding for the move to LEDs is being financed by the capital improvement fund and operation and maintenance fund.
Airports offer unique energy efficiency opportunities in both newbuild and retrofit scenarios, according to experts
