Beacon Products’ LEDs light up Atlanta’s Georgia-Pacific Center

An iconic fixture in Atlanta’s skyline, the Georgia-Pacific building, had gone dark for nearly seven years at night because its lighting system was energy inefficient.  That’s no longer the case thanks to Beacon Products, a division of Hubbell Lighting.

Beacon Products replaced the building’s inefficient 1,000W and 400W metal-halide bulbs with modern, efficient Beacon Products Alpha LED Floods. The retrofit reduced the installed wattage from 64,800W to 10,162W— a 75% reduction in energy consumption, dropping cost from approximately $55 to $14 a day.The installation has moved the Georgia-Pacific Center significantly closer to its goal of reducing its total energy consumption by 20% by 2020.
