Installing Osram LED retrofit lamps, Maine College to save $30,000 per year

It’s reported that the Pineland Farms campus in New Gloucester, Maine installed over 200 street lighting fixtures retrofitted with Osram Sylvania LEDs. This first significant installation of Osram’s new fixtures is estimated to save the college $30,000/year in energy costs.

Maine Governor John Baldacci noted Government cannot accomplish energy independence and security alone. Instead, it takes just this kind of partnership. They know change is not easy, but the improvements today are too important to put off any longer.

Pineland Farms is a 5,000-acre working farm, diverse business campus and educational and recreational venue. The site’s LED retrofit project has the support of Efficiency Maine, a statewide effort to promote more efficient use of electricity, help Maine residents and businesses reduce energy costs, and improve Maine's environment. Pineland Farms is administered by the Maine Public Utilities Commission, the Efficiency Maine Business Program provided support for the LED pilot project at Pineland and offered advice to help Pineland Farms save energy and improve Maine’s environment.

Sharon Reishus, Chairman of the Maine Public Utilities Commission, pointed out when Pineland and Sylvania asked Efficiency Maine about financial assistance in creating a prototype project for park-light LEDs, they worked hard to make sure the project would meet their cost-effectiveness standards. Now, the result of this partnership is an exciting example of cutting-edge technology that can help create a brighter and more energy efficient future for all of them.

The LED retrofit system takes advantage of the directional light distribution of 66 high-brightness Golden Dragon Plus LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors and delivers light only where needed, minimizing light trespass and disruption to Pineland Farm’s neighbors. Geoff Hunt, senior VP of communications and human resources, Osram Sylvania, stressed the installation of the post-top fixture LED retrofit allowed Pineland Farms to utilize their existing light fixtures to save energy and improve light quality on their campus without sacrificing safety and aesthetics.

In additional, the benefits of the post-top fixture LED retrofit kit include an operating temperature range from -30ºC to 40ºC, correlated color temperature of 5700K, color rendering index of 70, and average rated life of 50,000 hours with 70% lumen maintenance.
