It Cost ‘$5,000 to Change a Light Bulb’ at University of Illinois

University of IllinoisBuilding Energy Experts just completed an LED lighting and control retrofit of the 18,000-sq-ft Student Recreation Facility for The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). The project will save the building an estimated $20,000 per year in energy costs as well as extraordinary savings in reduced labor costs.
