U.S. Historic City Relit with LED Retrofit Luminaires

Morris, Illinois is a legendary Chicagoland destination with a vibrant, historic downtown district. Filled with grand old Victorian homes, quaint shopping, dining, and businesses, the town's lighting evolved slowly and disjointedly during the 20th century. The result? A massively expensive, outdated patchwork of inefficient mix-and-match sodium lamps.

"This historic downtown now shines with modern-day efficiency," explained Joel Lauth of Lighting Solutions of Illinois. "Morris' downtown lighting desperately needed updating for consistent performance and efficiency. I helped the town retrofit 229 sodium fixtures with the 60W Amerlux Avista LED light engine. The town's electric bills are now down by 50%, and Morris won a $78,000 grant - covering 57% of the project!"  

Amerlux® helped Morris see itself in a whole new light, from initial assessments and planning through a detailed three-month performance test of the powerful 60W Avista® LED light engine.  During the test, Amerlux was on call and on site to supervise and tweak the system. Avista passed the test with flying colors, and Amerlux successfully installed 229 light engines throughout the town. The new lighting brings a whole new visual perspective to downtown Morris, and with it, new visitors and commerce.

That's the new Morris. With a little help from Amerlux.
