When Dartmouth initiated a campus-wide project to improve efficiency and make university operations more eco-friendly, one of the main focuses was installing green lighting and upgrading existing fixtures to cut energy use. The ceiling in the Baker-Berry Library is perforated metal in some areas and solid sheet rock in others so installing new light fixtures would require locating a fixture that would identically match the current openings cut into the ceiling. Ideally, Dartmouth needed a solution that would allow the college to leave the current fixtures in place and retrofit them to be more efficient. Dartmouth chose TERRALUX’s Linear LED Retrofit Kits for the project. Removing 100 fixtures and the improved efficiency of the TERRALUX LED engines has resulted in a 2/3 energy savings.
