The Wellington says it replaced 1195 interior and exterior lights with energy-efficient LED lights, which will contribute to 202,939 kWh or 13.6 % in energy savings annually—a cost savings of $30,000 per year at current electricity prices, according to Alectra.
Alectra Utilities’ Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) team says it worked with The Wellington to assist in finding greater efficiencies and accessing incentives offered by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).
This recent retrofit is the conclusion of a lighting project that began in Fall 2016.
“The Wellington project adds to a growing number of retirement and long-term care residence lighting retrofits we have completed to date,” said Raegan Bond, vice-president, Conservation Demand Management, Alectra Utilities. “We’re proud to support our local businesses and assist in finding solutions to encourage greater energy and cost efficiency. Our customers agree it makes good business sense to use our expertise and IESO incentives to reduce energy use and save money for their companies.”
