Santa Clara, Calif.—October 20, 2014—Lunera® Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, is pleased to announce Trinity School has installed Lunera’s Susan Lamp in a move towards sustainable, energy-saving LED lighting for its multipurpose gymnasium. The private elementary school, located on a 43-acre campus in Atlanta, Georgia, is an area leader in advancing student achievement.
“Our focus on being a healthy, high performance school compelled us to upgrade to a sustainable, energy-efficient LED lighting system. The plug and play installation and brilliant high-bay lighting provided by Lunera’s Susan Lamp for our gymnasium was outstanding. We expected a two to three-day installation, the entire retrofit was completed in a day,” said Reginald P. Haley, FMP, Director of Operations, Trinity Schools, Inc.
Trinity School required an improved lighting environment that reduced energy expense, lowered air conditioning costs, and needed no routine maintenance. The Susan Lamp fit this need perfectly, with immediate 60 percent energy reduction and long run times. Trinity School was impressed with the negligible installation cost and was able to take advantage of local utility rebates to lower its overall purchase burden. These combined benefits contributed to a greatly improved bottom line for the school’s operations budget while increasing lighting performance and flexibility in the space.
According to the energystar.gov website, “the nation’s 17,450 K-12 school districts spend over $6 billion annually on energy – more than is spent on computers and textbooks combined. As much as 30 percent of a district’s total energy is used inefficiently or unnecessarily.” “It’s time for schools to spend less on utility bills when those dollars could be spent on students,” said Tom Quinn, Lunera Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Designed for long run times, the LED Susan Lamps last at least five times longer than the metal halide bulbs they rendered obsolete, resulting in fewer service cycles and replacement lamps, virtually eliminating maintenance costs. The instant-on feature of the lamp also adds important flexibility and capability, not previously available with metal halide lighting. Read our case study for more information.
