Hart Senate office building reduces annual energy costs 33% with Cree LED lighting

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA reports that the Hart Senate Office Building, the third and largest office building serving the U.S. Senate, now features energy-efficient LED lighting. More than 150 Cree CR22 architectural LED troffers were recently installed in the American Grill, Sundry Shop and main hallway of the Hart Building, providing a 33% reduction in annual energy costs.

The CR22 linear luminaires replaced 130 CFL downlights and linear fluorescents throughout the building. Designed to last 50,000 hours or more, the luminaires not only reduce energy consumption and lower utility expenses, but the new fixtures also minimize maintenance and operational costs for the Senate building, says Cree.

“The CR series is truly a no-compromise alternative when upgrading fluorescent lighting,” said Christopher Ruud, vice president global sales, lighting, Cree. “Delivering higher-quality light, longer life and greater energy savings than comparable fluorescent options, CR troffers are a natural fit for office settings like the Hart Senate Office Building.”
