PNNL's Work with Parking Lot Lighting Pays Off
PNNL recently received confirmation of the successful work they are performing to get commercial property owners to switch parking lot and parking garage lighting to LED as part of DOE's Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEEP) campaign. Confirmation came in the form of Kimco, Corp., the nation's largest publicly traded owner and operator of neighborhood and community shopping centers, recent announcement of the formal launch of its Illumi-Nation Program, a property improvement initiative for exterior lighting systems that is expected to significantly reduce energy consumption and improve nighttime curb appeal.
Kimco has been recognized as a sustainability leader in the commercial real estate industry, recently winning the DOE's Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking Award for its Gateway building controls program, which reduced average per-property common area electric consumption by 18 percent.
