  1. 1. How many engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?
  2. 2. Answer: Depends on what type of lightbulb you use

  6. 6. How much is lighting costing your facility?
  7. 7. LEDs vs. Conventional bulbs
  8. 8. /save-big-on-maintenance-costs-by- retrofitting-your-business-lighting-to-led/ LED bulbs use 50% - 90% less electricity than traditional fluorescentbulbs
  9. 9. LED bulb lasts Incandescent bulb lasts 1,000 hours > 50,000 hours reduce-labor-and-maintenance-costs/
  10. 10. managers-evaluating-transition-led-lighting/ LED lighting can reduce facility electric costs by 20-50% based on which light source is being replaced
  11. 11. Maintenance expenses in lighting manifest in 3 areas: üCost of replacement lamps and fixtures üCost of labor to replace lamps üWarranty protection and duration
  12. 12. Conventional bulbs are changed 50xbefore LEDs are changed once labor-and-maintenance-costs/
  13. 13. Average light bulb changing time ≈15 mins Labor cost ≈ $12/hour Replacing 1 led bulb ≈ $3.00 Conventional bulbs are changed 50x before LEDs are changed once. (50 x $3.00)= $150 for 1 conventional bulb reduce-labor-and-maintenance-costs/
  14. 14. LED in Hospitality
  15. 15. The 47,000 hotels and motels in the United States spend about six percent of their operating costs on energy each year Source:
  16. 16. Source: EnergyStar A 10% reduction in energy consumption has the same financial effect as increasing the average daily room rate by $0.62 in limited-service hotels and by $1.35 in full-service hotels
  17. 17. Source: Lighting retrofits reduce electricity by 50% and cut cooling requirements by 10-20 %
  18. 18. A Las Vegas hotel replaced inefficient metal halide lights on the building’s facade with LED lighting; this saved the facility $41,000/annually operating-and-maintenance-costs/
  19. 19. A Wisconsin casino saved over $221,000 in electric costs the first year LEDs were installed, and was projected to save $120,000 in maintenance costs over the next six years operating-and-maintenance-costs/
