Washington State’s Natural Resources Building (NRB) has installed 16 of The Watt Stopper’s Complete Control Lighting Control Panels throughout its seven-story, 300,000 sq ft facility. Savings analyses predict that NRB will save more than 1 million kWh in lighting, and another 400,000kWh is expected in HVAC savings. NRB anticipates $49,000 in annual savings.
Prior to installing the new system, NRB’s lights weren’t automatically controlled, and the state was eager to reduce its lighting usage. Complete lighting control panels now control lighting throughout the entire building, including bathrooms and perimeter areas. Occupants manually turn on lights in the morning, and each area features a scheduled automatic shut-off time.
