Lehman College Improves Energy Efficiency with Lighting Retrofit

Lehman College has retrofitted its campus with LED lights in an effort to improve sustainability and energy efficiency.

"The work, facilitated by Revolution Lighting Technologies operating division Tri-State LED, involved the installation of Revolution Lighting Technologies T8 LED tubes to increase energy efficiency and decrease utilities costs across campus," according to a news release. "The multi-phase program has installed LED tubes, which are 60 percent more efficient than fluorescent lighting, to achieve an average payback of only 2.5 years."

"Revolution Lighting allows us to stay ahead of the market in terms of technology adaptation, capitalizing on their premier customer service, industry leading knowledge and high quality LED solutions to maximize our efficiency goals and provide superior light quality for our students," said Rene Rotolo, the assistant vice president for Campus Planning and Facilities at Lehman College, in a prepared statement. "We look forward to continuing our efforts to become a more sustainable and energy efficient institution while providing a healthy working environment for our students."

Based in the Bronx, Lehman College is a senior college of the City University of New York serving approximately 12,000 students.
