LEEP Campaign Honors Organizations for Cutting Energy Use in #Parking Facilities #LEDs
Parking sites are often overlooked opportunities to save energy and money. The LEEP Campaign is a recognition and guidance program launched in 2012 to encourage the use of high-efficiency lighting technology in parking facilities. Its goal is to provide the resources to help property owners and managers evaluate opportunities to upgrade lighting in parking lots and garages through retrofits and in new construction projects. To date, more than 100 U.S. businesses and organizations representing more than 270 million square feet of parking space nationwide have joined the LEEP Campaign. Since the program launched, LEEP participants have saved nearly 45 million kilowatt-hours and $4 million annually by upgrading to high-efficiency lighting in more than 500,000 parking spaces.
