LED Lighting Retrofit to Save Hawaii Hospitals $1.2M
Hawaii Pacific Health (HPH), comprised of four nonprofit hospitals and 44 outpatient clinics and service sites, expects to save more than $1.2 million thanks to a LED lighting retrofit across its facilities.
By retrofitting existing fixtures with LEDs, HPH is projected to save up to $10,000 to $12,000 per month from the conversion of just one of its parking garage facilities, which will translate into
“$1.2 million in combined annual savings by retrofitting hallways, waiting areas, cafeterias and offices throughout its four hospitals”
Pacific Eco-Lights says it offers city municipalities and companies financing, such as leasing with maintenance, installation and extended warranty agreements to make switching to LED lighting easier.
