Spacelabs Healthcare, located on Snoqualmie Ridge, has taken a big leap toward becoming more energy efficient with the help of Puget Sound Energy.

PSE partnered with Spacelabs as part of its Business Enhanced Lighting program. With an incentive of $51,358.65 for Spacelabs, the PSE team helped replace all the interior and exterior lighting at the facility with energy efficient fixtures. The projected energy savings for the business are 205,937 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year; for comparison, an average home uses about 11,000 kWh a year.

“Spacelabs and C&W Services, our facilities management company, were pleased with the support from the PSE program; and we will be very pleased with the energy savings going forward,” said Tricia White, who manages the Spacelabs facility.

“It was impressive to see Spacelabs Healthcare’s commitment to energy efficiency. Their facilities staff performed all labor in house, which helped keep the project cost effective,” said Claudia Kirkpatrick-Just, a member of PSE’s Business Energy Management team.

Spacelabs will save almost $16,000 a year on its power bills. It also expects the parking lot LEDs will mean nearly zero maintenance and better light output for many years.
