The right lighting


Carlisle Area School District in Carlisle, PA empowers every learner to reach their highest level of personal excellence, and also applies the same doctrine across the district’s varied staff as a way to set an example and positively impact the surrounding community. So when renovating and as a result of the lighting upgrade, and a number of other sustainable initiatives, the renovated buildings are expected to use approximately 56% less energy per square foot compared to the original buildings. Classroom light levels are approximately 45 fc, and the interior watts per square foot were reduced from 144,870 allowable to 101,456 designed /proposed. Additionally, the upgrades qualified for energy saving lighting rebates from the local utility company. Currently, the district’s Lamberton Middle School is currently seeking LEED Gold Certification, and their Wilson Middle School, in close proximity to the district’s solar energy field, is seeking LEED Platinum Certification.
