Library Project Utilizes State of Illinois Energy Efficiency Incentives

Helping reduce energy consumption, BlueStar Energy Solutions recently designed an energy saving lighting solution for the Village of Franklin Park’s Public Library.  Through the implementation of LED technology, BlueStar Energy helped the library achieve a 56 percent reduction in energy consumption.

The project focused on ways to earn energy cost savings, enhance the lighting levels in the library to address concerns about poor quality lighting; reduce overall wattage usage; and use the “greenest” technology available in the marketplace.  BlueStar Energy worked with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to secure approximately $19,000 in energy efficiency incentives toward the project by demonstrating the anticipated savings through the application of LED technology.

Troy Hammond, President of BlueStar Energy’s Demand Side Management said, “We are proud to help customize energy efficiency solutions for the Franklin Park Public Library, helping realize the potential for energy savings and meet their needs with new LED technologies.”

After an extensive facility audit, BlueStar Energy recommended an innovative LED lighting control system.  In addition to exceeding the principal need for enhanced lighting, the new system maximizes daylight harvesting technology, provides full dimmable controls and occupancy sensors.

“We had a unique challenge for BlueStar Energy to design an energy solution that met our residents’ needs for better lighting in the library,” said Stan Monkus, Franklin Park Public Library Business Manager. “We were presented with a comprehensive engineering report that demonstrated the savings earned through the use of LED technology, and we could not be happier with BlueStar Energy’s commitment with achieving our vision.”
