Project Summary

Jason Hoelscher, Gallery Director and Assistant Professor, Dept. of Art ($12,457.40)

Reduces waste and improves the energy efficiency of the galleries in the GS Center for Art and Theatre. This project replaced the eighty-eight 250-watt halogen bulbs and fixtures currently in use, which tend to last two years or less, with eighty-eight equivalent LED bulbs and fixtures that use only 19-watts- and energy savings of over 20,000 watts- and which last up to a decade. In addition to the reduction in the bulbs’ direct energy usage, the climate control savings are substantial as well: the gallery lights are on from 9 .m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the current bulbs generate substantial amounts of heat that keeps the building’s air conditioning busy even when it is not particularly hot outside.
