Two remarkable LED retrofit projects at SoCal universities were recognized as best practices for emulation by staff throughout the California State University system. A complex, light-sucking ceiling at Cal State University Dominguez Hills presented challenges for Energy Manager Kenny Seeton. And a series of legacy systems in the UC Irvine Student Center required thoughtful application of LED retrofit solutions by Project Manager Joseph Fleshman.
Taken together, these projects prove that LED has definitely graduated to the next level. Between off-the-shelf solutions and mods, LED lighting alone can save energy and turn derelict indoor and outdoor spaces into showpieces.
