Poor lighting, very energy inefficient, generated high content mercury florescent lamps for disposal, PCB containing light ballasts.
Facility implemented Cooper Green Lights Program during 1999. Installed motion sensing light switches to automatically shut off lights when no one is in the room, in non-essential areas such as offices, restrooms and warehouses.
Achieved better illumination, better working condition, enhanced safety, reduced disposal costs for mercury-containing lamps, PCB ballasts, and universal wastes.

Additional Information :
Three year payback projected. First year cost savings in energy 600,00 kWhr which equals approximately $300,000.00 per year in energy savings.
