Platforms: Energy

In addition to the maintenance headaches, each platform has about 400 32W fluorescent lamps for a 1.4W/Sq. Ft. energy density, which is very high for this type of facility.  Above, drawing of the lighting configuration as it currently exists.  The proposed LED replacement will reduce the power consumption to about .5W/Sq. Ft., for a savings of about $7500 per year per platform from electricity bills alone.
