More than 2,000 energy-efficient LED tube lights installed in West Farms Center
"Installing LED lighting in new construction projects is the best way for facilities to see the highest return on investment over the life of the building," said Ray Sjolseth, president of Seesmart Technologies, Inc. "We were happy to help Cerebral Palsy Associations of New York State save thousands on energy and maintenance costs in its West Farms Center facility."
Cerebral Palsy Associations of New York State is a multi-service organization providing support and services for more than 100,000 individuals with cerebral palsy and developmental disabilities and their families. Its Metropolitan Division, which serves all five boroughs of New York City, recently opened the new West Farms Center in the Bronx at 1880 Bryant Avenue.
To aid the facility in its sustainability goals, Seesmart installed 2,000 LED tube lights, which will save the center 66 percent in energy costs - or $2,100 a month - compared to fluorescent lighting.
The areas that will see the benefits of LED lighting include exam rooms, rehabilitation rooms, offices, soffits, hallways and waiting rooms. The new 51,000-square-foot building offers day opportunities, medical and rehabilitation services and an enhanced curriculum of support and program services for individuals with physical and/or developmental disabilities and the entire community.
