LED Lighting Project

The KU Energy office has been working alongside maintenance staff and building managers to replace existing lighting with LEDs as well as utilizing different energy conservation strategies for buildings that use a lot of lighting for long periods of time. As of fall 2014, lighting retrofits have been completed on the Mississippi Street Parking Garage, the Allen Fieldhouse Parking Garage, and in campus buildings such as Eaton Hall and Murphy Hall.

In March 2015, KU started an LED Lighting Replacement Program which replaces failed compact fluorescent and halogen lamps with LED lamps. The project is estimated to take four years before all the lamps are replaced. Total cost is estimated to be an additional $200,000 spread out over four years. Anticipated savings will be over $88,000 in annual energy and $71,000 in annual maintenance. As of the end of FY2016, there have been 4,135 LED lamps installed with material cost of $48,753 and estimated annual savings of $56,164
