SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 29, 2010 — Mukherji Energy Management Associates, a Southern Calif. consulting firm, has observed considerable energy reduction using solid–state landscaping and pool lights at a small–scale beta site in South Orange County.
Mukherji Associates replaced halogen lamps with 32 LEDtronics GDL002–200–TPW–001M floodlights to illuminate landscaping along roadways (each consuming only 16 watts), and 15 PAR38–7X3W–XIW–120AMD bulbs in uplight fixtures for tree and shrub lighting.
“In addition to the energy savings, these lights will save annual relamping costs as the life of these lights is 50,000 hours,” said company principal Ram Mukherji.
The project was financed by San Diego Gas and Electric at zero interest over about five years, payable through energy savings per month.
