Berkeley County YMCA

Berkeley County YMCA of Moncks Corner, South Carolina sought to substantially reduce energy and maintenance expenses for their antiquated fluorescent and metal halide lighting system. Further, there was a need to increase lighting levels in key areas of safety concern for members–swimming pool, racquetball courts, weight room, and aerobic/yoga studio. Finally, they needed to upgrade exterior signage and security lighting to make the building safer for members in hours of darkness.

Challenge

  • Increase light levels for facility signage and security areas
  • Cut energy consumption by 60%
  • Cut maintenance expense by 90%
