Airfield LED Lighting and Fluorescent Lamp Replacement
We have changed the ballast and fluorescent lamps out in the airfield maintenance facility as part of the City of Albuquerque’s Green Initiative Program. The new fixtures are low-energy electronic ballast and T8 lamps. Other steps taken to lower the amount of energy getting used is the replacement of exit signs with low energy consuming LED fixtures and motion detecting timer light switches in the break room, men’s restroom and Airfield Manager’s office to assist in verifying that lights are being turned off when not in use
Taxiway lighting was replaced with LEDs. The LED technology will provide an approximate 70% energy reduction from conventional technologies with an expected usable life of over 100,000 hours.
