Replaced lights on the outside of Gressette Gym for Graduation
55 lights were recently replaced in Gressette Gymnasium. Instead of using an outside
contractor for the installation, Sodexo employees did the work.

The cost of purchasing the lights was $12,200. The expected payback is 3 years or less.

The lights that were replaced were 463 watt lights. The new ones are 343 watts, which is
a reduction of over 25% in energy consumption. However, the new lights do not require
the same amount of time to warm up, which means that they can be turned off in between
classes; the old ones could not. We expect an overall reduction in electrical use of 67%.

At the same time, because the technology of the new bulbs is more advanced, the candle
power is more than doubled. People who enter the gymnasium now will probably notice
a difference without being able to pinpoint exactly what it is. When the project was
halfway completed, and old bulbs were on one side, new bulbs on the other, anyone could
notice that it was a remarkable improvement.

Finally, the life expectancy of the old bulbs was 20,000 hours. The new bulbs have a life
expectancy of 35,000 hours, so the cost of maintenance will be reduced.
Completed the installation of the EMS Gressette Gymnasium classrooms and offices.
Saved $5,000 by installing it with our staff.
