Energy Efficient Lighting Cuts Energy Use in U.S. Parking Facilities by 90%

The U.S. Energy Department’s Better Buildings Alliance is supporting the Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEEP) Campaign, which to date has helped more than 100 U.S. businesses and organizations with planning or installing energy efficient lighting in their parking lots and garages. In the past year, these organizations have committed to install efficient lighting across more than 270 million square feet of parking space. Building owners spend more than $6 billion to light their parking lots and garages. LEEP Campaign participants have upgraded their facilities to high efficiency metal halide, fluorescent, and LED solutions that last three times longer than their previous technology and by using controls are able to reduce energy use when parking facilities are not in use.
