McGraw-Edison LED Fixtures Improve Lighting Performance and Efficiency at Detroit Metropolitan Airport

By Steve Breidenbach

McGraw-Edison Valet and Ventus light-emitting diode (LED) luminaires are replacing 6,050 existing parking garage fixtures at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) to improve efficiencies and optical lighting performance. The conversion will result in a 66 percent reduction in power consumption with an anticipated overall energy and maintenance savings of approximately $1.2 million annually.

The energy saved in this project is equivalent to powering 880 U.S. households for one year, and the reduction of 7,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year is equal to taking 1,350 passenger vehicles off the road.

Have You Achieved Maximum Lighting Performance and Efficiency with Your Fluorescent Upgrade?

By Steve Breidenbach

In the quest to save energy, many facility managers have replaced aging HID, HPS and T12 lighting with high-output T5 or T8 fluorescent (HIF) fixtures. These retrofits saved energy compared to legacy lighting, but the savings that were impressive at installation time are now eclipsed by the superior energy savings potential offered by intelligent LED systems. By combining a low-wattage, highly controllable illumination source with sensing, integrated controls, and wireless networking,
these high-performance LED lighting systems now effectively replace HIF lamps, and still save up to 90% on lighting energy. Intelligent LED lighting systems leverage the power and flexibility of LEDs as an illumination source and take a
more sophisticated, network-based approach to lighting. They eliminate the shortcomings of HIFs and offer facility managers the opportunity to approach lighting as a strategic asset — all without performance issues, lengthy warm-up times, and ongoing maintenance (re-lamping/re-ballasting) chores. While it seems unconventional to replace HIFs with LEDs, especially if the HIF installation was relatively recent, the case for evaluating the decision involves performance and economic considerations.
