Mall of America has plans to replace 5,400 metal halide and high pressure sodium fixtures in the parking ramps with new fixtures featuring light emitting diode (LED) technology from Acuity Brands.

The installation of LED fixtures at Mall of America, located in Minnesota, US, is expected to commence in July this year.

The conversion project is expected to reduce energy consumption in the ramps by two-thirds.

The City of Bloomington is negotiating with Mall of America to finalize the terms for a special assessment funding agreement that will make this project possible.

This project has received a grant of $500,000 from the US Department of Energy and the Minnesota Department of Commerce through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and an energy conservation rebate from Xcel Energy.

Acuity Brands is a provider of luminaires, lighting control systems and related products.
