Background

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is a federal agency charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of types of consumer products such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals. CPSC wanted Citizen Energy and its subsidiary GLP LED to design a solution that would improve illumination and generate savings. CPSC also required that the installation process not disrupt the important day to day functions of the facility.

Results

Citizen Energy and GLP LED replaced and retrofit the lighting fixtures with LED technology throughout the common and lab areas. The new LED technology increased safety and productivity for the civil servants in charge of such a critical national mission. Total savings are almost $21,000 annually.
