UPS installs LEDs, going greener

First the campus grounds. Then the buildings. Then the power in the buildings. Now University of Puget Sound has gone “green” with the streetlights on campus, by installing low-energy, long-life LEDs (light-emitting diodes) throughout its grounds. Facilities services staff expect the change to the campus’s 62 streetlights will save an estimated 63,400 kilowatt-hours each year—enough to power five homes. Streetlights within the campus were switched from 250-watt high-pressure sodium lamps to 54-watt LEDs. The project, completed in January on the 97-acre campus, is one of many steps Puget Sound has taken to run its operations in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
