Friday, July 15, 2016. Clearwater, KS. Staying Fit with a Retrofit!

The people of Clearwater, Kansas can experience a brighter, healthier workout from now on. The Clearwater Wellness Center replaced the outdated, hazardous and energy hogging T8 fluorescent tubes with new ENLIGHTEN LED lighting. By retrofitting the existing fixture to bypass the troublesome ballasts the wellness center will optimize energy savings as well as reduce costly maintenance.

304 fluorescent tubes were replaced with 137 ENLIGHTEN LED tubes reducing the lighting wattage from 9,728 to 2,466 and eliminating the ballast wattage of 972 all together. All told, expected savings amount to about 78% and tens of thousands of dollars over the next ten years.
