The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, Hartford, CT
Reducing energy consumption at this century old Connecticut treasure became a high priority at The Bushnell, and critical to sustaining a healthy bottom line. Electricity makes up 53% of the organization's overall energy expense, as lighting is a critical component of every performance. A best practices approach to management, combined with technology expertise has allowed us to reduce energy consumption significantly in the last five years.

The Belding Proscenium
1,620 tiny light bulbs create a beautifully lit image over the stage. Each lamp burns 5 watts and requires replacement every other year, at a cost of $2.15 plus significant labor costs. In 2008 we replaced all the bulbs with custom designed LEDs that last 20x longer, and use 62% less electricity.
Annual estimated savings: $10,341
Savings over 10 years: $112,000
