More than 1,300 Cree CR22 architectural LED troffers have been installed as part of a lighting upgrade. The LEDs are expected to deliver energy savings of 52 percent compared to the previous T8 fluorescent fixtures. An additional 5,200 Cree CR22 troffers are planned to complete the installation. TrueWhite Technology reduces the fixture count by 10 percent. Designed to last for more than 50,000 hours, the new fixtures will reduce maintenance and operational costs.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s headquarters has been undergoing a renovation to maximize energy savings of the 600,000-square-foot leased building.
