CLEVELAND, OHIO—Wireless Environment, an innovator of LED lighting technology that optimizes performance in off-grid lighting applications, recently debuted its newest patented technology, NetBright.

HARTFORD, CONN.—The Connecticut Convention Center has recently taken steps in the green direction with the completion of two major projects that will improve the facility’s energy efficiency. Beginning last summer, the Center entrusted the help of Strategic Building Solutions (SBS) to review the energy usage for chilled water, hot water, and steam throughout the facility. For four months, SBS made adjustments to the Center’s computers, pump controls, motor controls, and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs).
ATLANTA—Acuity Brands, Inc. continues to expand its extensive portfolio of residential and light commercial LED lighting solutions with the new LED Closet Light from Lithonia Lighting.

Between 2010 and 2013 the Las Vegas Sands Corp., owner of The Venetian and The Palazzo hotels, saved close to $2.5 million annually by changing their light bulbs to LED bulbs. Such is the power of green lighting. If you are a hotelier looking for a way to be both energy and economically efficient, LED is clearly the way to go. However, in your quest for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, don’t overlook the exterior of your property. Installing LED landscape lighting can substantially increase curb appeal, make your guests’ stay more pleasant, boost security, improve safety, reduce your electricity bill, and significantly decrease the strain your property places on the environment. Why use LED bulbs over their incandescent, compact florescent or halogen counterparts? LEDs last 50 times longer than a typical incandescent and 20 to 25 times longer than a typical halogen.
WEST CALDWELL, N.J.—Designed to replace less-efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in hospitality applications, MaxLite launches five- and seven-watt LED PL Retrofit Lamps with GU24, GX23 and G24q pin base options, the latest additions to the MaxLED brand of energy-efficient lamps and lighting fixtures.

The RDL32-4-12W series are Energy Star and UL/cUL listed, dimmable ceiling can-style downlights ideal for indoor use in architectural/décor lighting and commercial applications: hospitals and medical facilities, hotels and resorts.
LONGMONT, COLO.—Installing downlights with pin-based CFL or other pin-based lamps used to require the management of many parts, ballasts, drivers, lamps and finally the fixture itself. TERRALUX has eliminated the need for ballasts with the introduction of its D Series Downlights, streamlining the installation and maintenance process. Engineered for commercial applications, the modular LED downlights have efficacy above 85 lumens/watt.
NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y.—The Radisson Hotel New Rochelle is undergoing almost $2 million in updates to improve the energy efficiency of the 10-story, 129-room property. According to Colby Brock, General Manager of the hotel, the first phase of the renovation included replacing all PTAC units with new, more energy efficient versions with digital controls. The second and most expensive part of the renovation—one costing about a million dollars—was the replacement of the boiler plant with one with digital controls. That upgrade is expected to reduce energy costs by $250,000 a year, gas consumption by more than 35 percent, and emissions by 750 tons annually. “The direct digital control system allows us to have more zones, or more points of control, which enables us to adjust specific areas of the property,” Brock says.
