California State University Fullerton has begun a $1.5 million lighting upgrade on its campus.

The improvements in light bulbs, fixtures and lighting controls will make the campus about 20 percent more energy efficient, estimates Willem van der Pol, director of physical plant at Cal State Fullerton. The changes are projected to save about 4 million kilowatt hours of energy and reduce campus energy costs by $300,000 a year.

More than 900 metal halide lights now used along pedestrian walkways, roadway and parking lots will be replaced with LED fixtures operated with wireless controls. In building stairwells, 400 fluorescent light fixtures will be replaced with hybrid bi-level lighting fixtures using fluorescent and LED bulbs. About 400 lights on building exteriors will be replaced with 250 LED wall-pack bi-level lighting, In addition, all lighting in the university’s parking structures will be switched to LED systems.
