The St. Clair Catholic District School Board is in the process of retrofitting the current lighting in their schools to Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). This Global Lighting Initiative is set to occur over three phases; we are currently in phase two of the project.
Phase one of the project occurred over summer 2016, retrofitting 8 schools across the district – including Chatham-Kent’s Catholic high school Ursuline College. With that work, there is an average of 24 kilowatts of energy savings in each school, with UCC seeing the largest energy savings.
Phase two began in December and is projected to save an average of 22.5 kilowatts over seven schools.
This an excellent energy-savings project that will continue to progress throughout the rest of the year. Stay tuned for news about a similar project with the Lambton Kent District School Board!
