The Helen Lamp was used to replace CFLs in the Hilton’s 850 guest room entry foyers.
The Hilton Minneapolis wanted an easily installed lighting solution that would raise the bar on their guest experience, while lowering energy usage and reducing maintenance costs. A custom guest corridor fixture had already been designed for CFL lamps, but the quality of light was not as beautiful as the Hilton Minneapolis had hoped. Lunera’s Helen Lamp was the solution, delivering daylight-quality light that guests loved, plus additional energy and maintenance savings that exceeded those of the CFLs that were being replaced.
In total, 2,350 CFL lamps were made obsolete overnight, energy bills were reduced, and with a 50,000-hour life, routine maintenance costs were eliminated.
In addition to the flush-mount drum corridor fixtures, the Helen Lamp was used to replace CFLs in the property’s 850 guest room entry foyers. This enabled the light quality to flow from the corridors into the guest rooms and unlike the CFLs, had the additional advantage of being an instant-on solution.
In total, 2,350 CFL lamps were made obsolete overnight, energy bills were reduced, and with a 50,00- hour life, routine maintenance costs were eliminated. Working with the local utility company, rebates reduced the Hilton’s upfront cost of upgrading. The Helen Lamp brightened the guest experience at the Hilton Minneapolis and sent CFLs packing.
