The Bedford-Stuyvesant YMCA in the greater New York City area is shining a little brighter these days. The 65,000 square foot building upgraded its lighting system last month.
The updated lighting includes the pool and surrounding area, which received minimal natural daylight.
Switching from their existing fluorescent and incandescent lamps, the YMCA opted to make the switch to LED, which uses 50 percent less energy compared to the other lamps.
The retrofit will result in a yearly savings of about 50,000 kilowatt hours, which equals to a savings of about $10,100.
