As part of its Sands ECO 360o Green Meetings program, Las Vegas Sands has completed an expansive energy-efficient LED lighting upgrade to its meeting spaces at The Venetian|The Palazzo Las Vegas.

The 12-watt lamps, with a rated lifespan of 25,000 hours, will require fewer change outs and use 108 fewer watts per bulb than the bulbs they replaced. This will reduce the resort?s annual electricity use by nearly 4.1 million kWh, saving more than $400,000 in annual lighting costs.
