A lighting refit at Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio, using GE lighting products is saving the healthcare center $13,000 a year in energy costs.

GE’s Evolve LED lighting system has been installed on the hospital’s parking lot and parking deck, following a trial in its then newly-built employee parking lot in May 2010. Impressed with light quality and uniformity, Aultman retrofitted a second, older lot using high-pressure sodium fixtures with the same product, GE says. Thirty-two Evolve LED Area Lights replaced 52 high-pressure sodium fixtures in the lot.

Aultman’s average expense to light the HPS-equipped lot was $1,500 a month including the cost of an electrical contractor to replace failed fixtures. Since the LED conversion, the hospital’s utility bill has fallen to $400 and the hospital hasn’t placed a service call yet, GE says.

The hospital security team is particularly happy with the even lighting coverage, GE says.
