GE?s LED Hotel Lighting for Sparkling Hill Resort
Carved into a granite cliff in the North Okanagan in close proximity to Vernon, British Columbia, Sparkling Hill Resort is celebrated for its organic and modern flair including a creative use of $10 million in Swarovski Crystal elements that provide an atmosphere of calm and serenity. Searching for a more efficient LED hotel lighting, the resort recently specified 2,500 GE LED replacement lamps for its award-winning resort. The switch means an annual 828,000 kilowatt hours (kWhs) energy reduction at Sparkling Hill and will equate to $1.3 million in total lighting cost savings over 10 years. Why is a resort wasting 828 MW of electricity per year on lighting? Here is why.
