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.
“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.
