CRS Electronics Inc. reduces Humber College energy consumption with new LED lighting

WELLAND, ON — CRS Electronics Inc., an engineer, designer, and manufacturer of LED lighting, announced today that Humber College has replaced 1,050 of their existing halogen 50 watt bulbs with CRS's 6 watt LED MR16 lights. CRS's new LED replacement lamps are expected to reduce Humber's energy consumption from 2,625,000 kWh to 315,000 kWh over the life of the bulbs and generate a 88 per cent reduction in electrical demand and electrical consumption.

"Making the decision to switch to a greener product was easy. During testing it was clear that CRS's MR16 outperformed the competition," said David Griffin, Operations and Maintenance Manager at Humber College. "With CRS's innovative lights we will reduce operating costs by $525,000 over the estimated 9 year life of the bulbs in addition to doing our part to reduce our carbon foot print. We also eliminated sending approximately 3,000 halogen bulbs per year to the landfill.

"The diversity of our product applications is confirmed by Humber College's decision to install our MR16 product," said Scott Riesebosch, President of CRS Electronics. "The market opportunity in universities, colleges and other institutions for this kind of energy savings has barely scratched the surface. We have the ability to diminish energy consumption in almost every setting with our out-of-the-box products and our custom made contract manufacturing solutions."
