The City of Kansas City, Mo., General Services Department recently completed a new LED lighting project in the City’s Block 126 Parking Garage at 13th Street and Grand Boulevard. The $307,643 project replaced metal halide fixtures with 399 LED fixtures. The new LED fixtures have a life expectancy of 150,000 hours, compared to 8,500 hours for the metal halide fixtures. The new lights are also about four times brighter than before, yet use one-third as much electricity.
“As part of its KC Green initiative, the City of Kansas City continues to incorporate green programs and projects throughout the city as part of its broader triple bottom line approach to sustainability that simultaneously promotes social equity, economic vitality and environmental quality,” said Dennis Murphey, director of the Office of Environmental Quality. “These kinds of projects demonstrate our ongoing commitment to implement green and sustainable efforts whenever possible.”
The LED system will save the City more than $24,000 in electricity annually and reduce maintenance costs. The project also received an $11,000 rebate from KCP&L. “Significant operational and maintenance savings will be achieved as well,” said Curt Futvoye, facility manager. “Longer life spans equal less service time. Labor savings of more than 100 hours annually are anticipated.”
