GE's Albeo LED High Bay lighting at the Dee Events Center in WSU

GE's Albeo LED High Bay lighting at the Dee Events Center in Weber State University (WSU) has been widely appreciated for its lighting quality and energy savings. Comparing to high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting previously used, the Albeo ABHX-Series can save more than 30% energy and is expected to save about $40,000 per year for the university.

"HID lighting at the Dee Events Center was one of the single biggest power hogs, and we have no idea to reduce the high electric bills," said Jacob Cain, WSU Energy & Sustainability Manager. "The new high bay lighting gives us brighter light with fewer fixtures, and we spend less money on energy. Now that's something we welcome and our teams and fans can appreciate."

GE Lighting offered WSU an LED high bay fixture that is commonly used for warehouse applications. The university's energy team measured its distribution of light, dimming capabilities, and net change in weight. After a series of test and review, a total of 80 fixtures were installed at the Dee Events Center to replace the 100 HID fixtures. The new LED high bay lighting produces more than 200 foot candles (the amount of light that falls on a given surface). The original lighting produced dim spots on the court, and foot candles ranged from 60-150 depending on location, Cain said.

Albeo ABHX-Series LED lighting fixtures significantly reduce maintenance needs. Because LEDs dim over time, lifetimes are based on the number of hours the fixtures produce at least 70% of the initial light output, referred to as L70. The Albeo ABHX-Series' life is rated for 100, 000 hours at L70. The HID lamps can only last a fraction of that time.

The Albeo ABHX-Series fixture can replace a variety of legacy high bay lighting systems—250-watt to 1500-watt HID and T5/T8 high-intensity fluorescent lighting, which burn out after 20,000 to 30,000 hours, creating a total failure of the lighting mechanism.

The Albeo ABHX-Series was recognized in the category of "Industrial Luminaires—high bay" in the 2013 Next Generation Luminaires (NGL) Solid-State Lighting Design Indoor Competition. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting Designers, the NGL awards recognize excellence in energy-efficient LED commercial lighting unit design. The ABHX-Series also recently earned a 2013 Architectural SSL Magazine Product Innovation Award, which showcases cutting-edge LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures.
