American University saves money and emissions with LED lighting

In 2008, American University (AU) signed the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment. In 2010, AU adopted a Green Building policy, requiring LEED standards for new construction and major renovations. One of the projects to benefit from these two resolutions was AU’s Spring 2010 installation of LED (light-emitting diode) lights in the School of International Service (SIS) parking garage, and in lamps along outdoor campus walkways. By using LEDs as opposed to traditional metal halide lights, AU will be able to save money on electricity and replacement costs, as well enhance the safety and aesthetics of the building and surrounding areas.
