“PlanLED and Northwest Edison enjoy a valuable and strong relationship. We really enjoy working with the people at PlanLED and the level of commitment PlanLED has to educating, training and promoting new technologies is both commendable and admirable. Human Centric Lighting is a prime example, where PlanLED has been instrumental in pioneering this technology into the US Market and working with forward-thinking people at Renton School District to implement the Human Centric lighting to help further studies of product while improving student behavior and academia. Northwest Edison shares in PlanLED’s forward thinking and appreciate being part of the introduction of new products and technologies.”

WSSP 2015 Update

After meeting all requirements above, provide a lighting system that is designed to change the color of the luminaires (approximately 3,000 K – 5,000 K) based on the respective color of the sunlight throughout the day. (Systems may be called tunable white, circadian rhythm, human-centric lighting, etc.) System may have the ability to have a temporary override (up to 60 minutes) for “calm” (3,000 K) and/or “test” (5,000 K) settings.

The state has a Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol (WSSP) that requires state-funded school construction projects greater than 5,000 square feet (chapter 39.35 RCW) to incorporate high-performance features into their school design and construction.

PROJECT SCOPE
2200 Tunable Beetle Fixtures and 2300 Fixed Retrofit Kits installed in 2 High Schools
ENERGY SAVINGS
Lighting System Energy Consumption:
Before – 1.2 mWh/yr
After –  682,000 kWh/yr (calculated estimate)
ENERGY SAVING IN DOLLARS

$50,000/year to $1.5 MM over the project life (est.)

MAINTENANCE SAVINGS

Approximately 20% of energy savings/year (est.)

IMPACT ON SUSTAINABILITY
Avoided 322 tons of Co2/year going into our Atmosphere (est.)

“Hopefully every school in the world will have this kind of technology to let the kids focus on their learning.” Sara Barbee

“Working with PlanLED has been a very positive experience. They deliver on their promises, totally stand behind their products, and completely understand the value of customer service. Their commitment to improve interior environments with tunable LED lighting has not only made me aware of how this type of technology impacts our students’ learning environment, but has also inspired me to target special education classrooms where the impact will be most critical.”
