Cooper Lighting Joins Green Parking Council (GPC)

Cooper Lighting has joined the Green Parking Council (GPC) as a platinum-level partner. Working together with the GPC and members, Cooper Lighting will collaborate to develop, implement and accelerate sustainable programs, technologies and standards.

In addition, Cooper will assist to educate parking professionals on energy-efficient LED technologies to help transform their facilities into sustainable and environmentally responsible assets. These conversions and new installations can result in energy and maintenance savings of up to 80 percent over traditional HID sources; improved lighting for pedestrians and vehicles; and positive environmental impact.

“Upgrading parking facilities with more energy-efficient LED options is one of the most practical solutions to save energy, reduce costs, and lower CO2 emissions”

“As a leader in the lighting industry, Cooper Lighting shares our goal of educating our members and the community on the advantages of energy-efficient lighting and controls technologies available today,” said Green Parking Council Executive Director, Paul Wessel. “High-performance lighting is central to safety, energy consumption, and sustainability in parking facilities. We look forward to working with Cooper Lighting and welcome them as a partner in our transformative work.”

The Green Parking Council is a not-for-profit organization providing leadership and oversight for the green conversion of parking facilities to sustainable, environmentally responsible assets. GPC is dedicated to expanding green parking practices and environmental services through its Certified Green Garage rating system. GPC encourages new, alternative parking practices and exceptional industry transformation through creative thought and ingenuity. By challenging garage owners and managers to collaborate and create open-sourced and sustainable best practices, the parking industry can positively impact the environment.

“Upgrading parking facilities with more energy-efficient LED options is one of the most practical solutions to save energy, reduce costs, and lower CO2 emissions,” says Cooper Lighting President Mark Eubanks. “We look forward to our partnership with the GPC and its members to use our knowledge and resources to support its goals.”

Implementing LED lighting and controls technologies results in a significant reduction in electricity consumption, which can substantially lower carbon emissions. Recently, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officials replaced more than 4,300 210-watt, metal-halide fixtures in its north and south parking decks with Cooper Lighting’s 80-watt McGraw-Edison Valet LED fixtures. This action provided significant improvements in energy-efficiency and cost savings of almost $500,000 each year. According to the City of Atlanta’s Office of Sustainability, the Airport’s financial and environmental partner, the carbon reduction associated with the project is equivalent to taking 500 cars off of the road.
