ALSIP-MARRIONETTE PUBLIC LIBRARYPublic Libarary

Situation: Modern libraries such as Alsip-Merrionette Park know that an investment in lighting is investing in the overall experience of their facilities for patrons. Verde Energy Efficiency Experts made recommendations and installed top of the line LED solutions in their space. Verde also applied rebates through the ComEd Standard program as well as Instant Discounts which cut their out of pocket expenses.

Problem: Lighting and controls were in need of an upgrade to give visitors and library staff the optimal environment to read and work.

Solution: The entryway, circulation, and adult services area were updated with Philips EvoKits as well as LED strips and socket retrofits. Verde also upgrade their metal halide exterior lighting with energy efficient LEDs. The project was broken down into 3 phases of work.

Result: Upgrades resulted in a brighter, white color, decreased energy consumption, fewer dark spots, and advanced lighting controls. The total project cost was $60,571 with an incentives rebate of $7,835.70. The Alsip-Merrionette Park Public Library saved 93,942 kWh annually as well as $9,539 in costs per year. The return on investment was calculated at 8.0 years.
