Mann LED Elevator Lighting Energy Conservation Project Saves $1,000 and 7 tons of CO2e Annually

Energy Management staff collaborated with student group Energy Corps at Cornell University (ECCU) to replace elevator lighting...


The Energy Corps students inventoried the elevators, determined an LED replacement lamp for the existing halogen lamps, calculated a cost benefit, and received approval from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to replace all lamps in all elevators. Energy Management provided the lamps and students replaced them in all four elevators in the building saving a total of ~1,700 watts reduction on a continuous basis.

"The project decreased energy usage and unwanted heat while improving the elevator aesthetics."
Ashley Kossakowski  ’15, Energy Corps Member, Energy Conservation Intern
