Deco Lighting’s Induction Lighting at the University of California Irvine Medical Center provides Superior Visibility, Safety and 56% Energy Savings
At top ranked University of California, Irvine, Medical Center facility
managers selected Deco Lighting to replace inefficient outdoor lighting
to save energy and maintenance costs and improve nighttime safety.
After reviewing the latest technology lighting systems available, UC Irvine
chose Induction lighting for its unmatched benefits, including 100,000
hour lamp life, high efficiency illumination, and excellent color.
Deco Lighting replaced existing HPS (high pressure sodium) fixtures at
UC Irvine Medical Center campus parking lots and parking garages.
Benefits to the University include immediate 56% utility cost savings, long
term maintenance savings, better control and uniformity of illumination,
and greatly improved color and visibility. UC Irvine facility managers and
security staff have made favorable comments on how impressed they
are with the new lighting and how it has improved the campus environment
at night. Residents of nearby apartments have contacted the University
to express how elated and thankful they are with the new lighting and
elimination of excess spill light.
Deco Lighting D816i Series area luminaires with 120 watt Induction lamps
replaced 250 watt HPS fixtures in several parking locations. Additional Deco
Lighting fixtures installed include D407i Series Induction wall luminaires and
vaportight T8 fluorescent fixtures in campus parking garages. NovaTech
Energy Services Group, Inc., a nationwide leader in energy conservation
services, provided lighting design, equipment recommendations and complete
cost savings analyses for the project. “The new lighting is expected to save
the University $21,092 per year in lighting energy costs and $3,994 per year
in maintenance costs“ said Greg Cavlovic, National Accounts Manager of
NovaTech. “Including state and utility rebates, the ROI (return on investment)
is projected to be achieved in only 2.27 years” added Mr. Cavlovic. Long term
maintenance savings will be provided by eliminating the parts and labor costs
of at least three relampings of the HPS fixtures over the lifespan of the new
100,000 hour Induction luminaires.
Induction lighting provides equivalent light levels compared to HID lighting
using only half the wattage. This performance is based on the visual effective
lumens (VEL) of Induction lamps, versus the traditional outdoor footcandle
measurement criteria developed for HID lamps many years ago. The superior
quality of Induction lighting is due to the VEL, high 85 lumens per watt efficiency,
and excellent 85 CRI (color rendering index) clean white color. HPS lamps exhibit
a distinctly yellowish cast and a very poor 22 CRI color rating. The superb color,
uniformity and control of the new Deco Lighting Induction fixtures at the UC Irvine
campus has greatly improved the nighttime visibility and safety for students, staff,
drivers, and the surrounding community.
