  • UAF Lighting Upgrade Report

ACEP affiliated researcher Tom Marsik has been working with UAF’s administration and Facilities Services on evaluating the possibility of upgrading UAF's fluorescent lighting to LEDs as well as potentially performing some delamping on campus where appropriate.  Initial estimates show a possible cost savings in the order of hundreds of thousands dollars annually, according to Tom.  He also says, “Upgrading from fluorescent to LED can be challenging because there are over 7,000 different linear LED products available on the market and some of them are pretty bad. Therefore, UAF BBC spent hundreds of hours on carefully assessing the market and testing some LED products.”
