Thirty new energy-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures are now brightening the Siena campus. 

The retrofit of the outdoor lights, completed ahead of schedule, is the first energy-saving and and cost-saving project paid for by proceeds from the College’s new Green Revolving Fund (GRF).

“LED lighting offers a great potential for the College to reduce energy use,” said Rich Tortorici, director of facilities management operations. “We’re pleased that our team was able to make Siena’s first GRF project a reality in time for the new academic year.”

The technology has numerous other benefits: reduced carbon dioxide emissions, lower energy consumption, reduced maintenance and generally higher efficiency. LED lights also have low heat generation and an optimized beam pattern.
