Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Energy demand, energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase. The annual savings in electricity costs by switching to LED lights is estimated at $6,077.57, with an estimated annual reduction in kilowatt-hours of 31,987.

The proposed lights have a five-year warranty. Their published life expectancy is 50,000 hours. Based on the Fitness Center’s “lights-on” times, we expect the bulbs to have a usable life of 8.4 years, more than double that of fluorescent tube lights.
