The Bronx Chronicle: Revolution Lighting Technologies’ Tri-State LED Completes LED Lighting Retrofit Throughout Lehman College Campus

STAMFORD, CT— Revolution Lighting Technologies (RLT), a leader in advanced LED lighting technology solutions, today announced the completion of an LED retrofit project with Lehman College, the Bronx-based senior college of the City University of New York. The work, facilitated by Revolution Lighting Technologies operating division Tri-State LED, involved the installation of Revolution Lighting Technologies T8 LED tubes to increase energy efficiency and decrease utilities costs across campus. The multi-phase program has installed LED tubes, which are 60% more efficient than fluorescent lighting, to achieve an average payback of only 2.5 years.

“Revolution Lighting allows us to stay ahead of the market in terms of technology adaptation, capitalizing on their premier customer service, industry leading knowledge, and high quality LED solutions to maximize our efficiency goals, and provide superior light quality for our students,” said Rene Rotolo, the assistant vice president for Campus Planning and Facilities at Lehman College. “We look forward to continuing our efforts to become a more sustainable and energy efficient institution while providing a healthy working environment for our students.”

RLT has installed almost 3,000 LED lights at Lehman College since 2010, including approximately 1,600 in the latest project at the end of 2015. “Revolution Lighting’s industry-leading LED lighting technologies can offer up to 60% in annual savings compared to traditional fluorescent lighting technologies replaced at Lehman College. Figuring a three-year payback on monies spent since 2010, Lehman College could realize a potential savings of $40,000/year,” said Ron Young, President, Tri-State LED.
