Blacksburg, VA – March 19th, 2018 – VT Office of Sustainability realized our Green proposal by upgrading the Scene Shop lights. The new LEDs will save $2000+ annually in VT electricity fees and pay back the investment in ~3 years. Other benefits include reduced cooling load, light pollution, and external costs (such as CO2 emissions) with enhanced control (dimming), durability, and light quality.
