As Northwest Missouri State University readies its campus for a new academic year and the Robert and Virginia Foster Fitness Center nears completion, lighting elements surrounding the facility have undergone upgrades that will save the University thousands of dollars annually.
Northwest Facility Services staff recently replaced dated metal halide fixtures at the Joyce and Harvey White International Plaza and the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts with new LED fixtures.
The new lights have a longer lifespan, provide more light and result in an increased energy savings for Northwest.
“The project saves approximately 45,000 kilowatt hours a year for financial savings of over $3,000 and a carbon reduction of 30 tons annually,” Northwest Energy Manager Daniel Boyt said, adding the project will pay for itself within three years.
KCP&L funded a portion of the installation through its rebate program.
