OP-T2-15: LED Lighting
Operations Mgr, Energy Efficiency
Does the institution use Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology in at least one lighting application? LED applications in exit signs and remote controls do not count for this credit.:
A brief description of the technology used:
Valencia College has initiated installation of LEDs replacing incandescents and older flourescents, particularly in settings where installation of replacement bulbs is difficult. One classroom on West Campus was retrofitted with LEDs (with Occupancy sensors and dimming) on a pilot basis. Several exterior lights for the HSB building (security lighting) on West campus is LED. Several exterior walkway lights on Osceola are now LED. We are in the survey stage as to whether the same poles can be used, etc. and evaluating payback period.
The percentage of building space with LED lighting:
The percentage of parking deck space with LED lighting:
The percentage of outdoor space that uses LED lighting:
The percentage of building space with efficient, non-LED lighting (compact fluorescent, automatic daylight shutoff, or other energy-saving features):
The website URL where information about the institution's use of the technology is available :
All of the exterior lighting is being controlled by the building automation system, inclusive of analog photocells for inclement weather. We have converted T12 fluorescent to T8 and T5. We use occupancy sensors in offices and classrooms. We use induction lights in the breezeways instead of high pressure sodium. We have converted incandescents to CFLs with the exception of theatre stage lighting and gallery.
