Long Beach, CA 90810
Freeway Business Center, located at 1501 Hughes Way, Long Beach California is a 77,984 rentable square foot building that is 67% occupied. As part of the company's ongoing energy efficiency program, 1501 Hughes Way, constructed in 1984, was chosen as a candidate for a lighting retrofit. This addition was conceived as part of the overall efficiency enhancement at the property. The upgrade was specified to reduce wasted energy and reduce operating cost. A typical lighting retrofit was accomplished by replacing T-12 light tubes with T-8 light tubes and installing electronic ballasts. All the incandescent and fluorescent exit signs were replaced with LED exit signs using only two watts per fixture. Also installed were occupancy sensors throughout the building to reduce unoccupied lighting energy
In addition to all the lighting and mechanical upgrades, many no cost / low cost measures were taken that reduced energy consumption. These included:
The properties engineering department recognizes the financial impact of electrical demand charges and, as such, targets their operation towards peak demand reduction. By monitoring electrical demand levels and establishing a peak target, the energy management systems are programmed to selectively reset equipment to keep the demand within defined limits while never compromising occupant comfort.
The payback for these initiatives is approximately three and a half years with a marked increase in tenant satisfaction and comfort.
