Knoxville Zoo – Lighting Retrofit

Knoxville Zoo – Lighting Retrofit Estimated Lighting Cost Before – $73,000 100% Estimated Lighting Cost Afterwards – $18,000 24% ARiES Solar completed an LED lighting retrofit at the Knoxville Zoo, replacing over 3,100 bulbs across the entire campus. Inefficient incandescent bulbs and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) were replaced with energy-efficient LED lamps, reducing the zoo’s annual electricity consumption by almost 550,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh). The retrofitted 53-acre campus will now save approximately $55,000 annually in electricity costs. After having ARiES Solar install a 50 kW solar photovoltaic system on site, the folks at the Knoxville Zoo were looking to make some serious reductions in their energy consumption. By retrofitting the bulbs for a variety of applications, including parking lighting, exhibit lighting, retail lighting, office lighting, and exterior lighting, we were able to reduce the amount of energy the Knoxville Zoo uses for lighting by 76%. The Knoxville Zoo lighting project is a perfect example of the overwhelming potential of LED lighting. While many people think that LED lights are only available in a single, blue color option, the outstanding energy savings at the zoo were accomplished by installing LED lamps for a variety of applications. In addition to drastically cutting electricity consumption, these LED lamps have a lifetime that is, on average, 40 times longer than most incandescent lamps and 7 times longer than most CFLs. This longer bulb lifetime means that the zoo will save even more money down the road in the decreased number of replacement bulbs required, as well as the lower labor costs associated with replacing bulbs more frequently.
