Largest LED Parking Garage Retrofit at MGM Grand Detroit

September 12, 2013

The MGM Grand in Detroit has another achievement to add to its sustainability. The building recently completed a LED retrofit of its 61-acre parking garage.
The retrofit is said to be one of the nation’s largest LED parking garage projects, and includes more than 3,000 LED lamps. It took about three months to complete, and will reduce the garage’s annual energy use by 80 percent.
“Implementation of new lighting technologies is an important component of our overall strategy,” said Cindy Ortega, the Chief Sustainability Officer for MGM Resorts International. “After extensive research and testing in the local environment, LED proved to be the best option for reducing energy and costs.”
LED technology can produce an energy savings of 50 to 80 percent, especially in garages where lamps are typically on most hours of the day. Compared to traditional lighting, LEDs have much longer operating lives, resulting in less maintenance costs.
Earlier this year, the company initiated other sustainability initiatives including installing induction lighting to open parking lots, and installing solar panels on a convention center.
