GLRPPR Sector Resource: Parking Garage Lighting [City of Peoria Case Study]

Title:
Parking Garage Lighting [City of Peoria Case Study]

Abstract:
As a way to trim costs, the City Council of Peoria was looking for ways to reduce the energy usage of city buildings. The numerous parking garages in the city provided a great way to start. The Facilities Engineers for the City of Peoria, Steve Myers and Jason Meeks have been steadily checking off energy-saving projects with the help of Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) Illinois Energy Now Public Sector incentives for retrofit programs. Parking garages generally have lights on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which can lead to quite high energy costs over time; the City of Peoria owns four large multi-story public parking garages. The 665-space Jefferson Street Parking Deck in Peoria was selected as the first to receive a lighting renovation and was converted from High Pressure Sodium lighting to more cost-effective induction lighting.
