Crescent Electric and GE Lighting provide energy-efficient lighting program

Sixth grade students in Dubuque, Iowa, recently used a GE energy auditor online tool called GELA to learn that their school could save more than $2,600 per year in energy costs if they replaced existing T12 fluorescent lamps and ballasts with GE F28T8 fluorescent lamps with UltraMax Ballasts.

Sixth grade students in Dubuque, Iowa, recently used a GE energy auditor online tool called GELA to learn that their school could save more than $2,600 per year in energy costs if they replaced existing T12 fluorescent lamps and ballasts with GE F28T8 fluorescent lamps with UltraMax Ballasts. The program allows students to use their computers to survey the existing lighting in their school. The audit tool then reports three results: how much lighting energy the school is using, are more efficient lamps available, and how much energy the school could save with more efficient lighting. Crescent Electric Supply, which donated 1,000 of the new GE lamps to complete the project, sponsored the science program, and GE Lighting supplied the UltraMax ballasts. The GELA audit program is available free, online, to teachers and schools across the country.
