Acuity Brands, a developer of energy efficient lighting and control systems, has completed a pilot outdoor LED lighting project in the city of Anderson, Indiana using its energy efficient Holophane brand of luminaires.
The company has installed its Holophane GranVille LED luminaires on the campus of Anderson University that is expected to reduce its energy consumption by approximately 40% by using the energy efficient lighting.
In addition, the Holophane GranVille LED luminaires, which have life expectancy of 50,000 hours, are anticipated to enable the city of Anderson to reduce its carbon emissions by 17,106 pounds and save 40% in lighting related energy costs annually.
The Holophane GranVille LED fixtures offered with classic or premier optics and a variety of trims, luminaire shapes and uplight options, have precision optics with tight tolerances that direct light where it is needed to maximize energy savings and help ensure design effectiveness.
The Anderson University has financed the energy efficiency LED lighting retrofit project with help from the city of Anderson and a grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation.
Acuity Brands lighting vice president and general manager of Holophane Jack Ries said that the energy saving Holophane LED luminaires are designed for areas that require a long system operating life combined with an aesthetically pleasing appearance that complements the environment.
