Since 2004, RLE has been a valuable partner for Ameresco, supplying energy efficiency lighting and providing electrical installation services. RLE has assisted Ameresco in various capacities including specifying lighting packages, designing custom fixtures for unique applications, and providing auditing services for implementing a turnkey solution.


Ameresco’s goal for upgrading their lighting fixtures was to reduce their wattage consumption in half to save energy and money.


Existing fixtures were 4L Industrial 8′, 2L 4′ Industrial with normal ballast. 2×2 and 2×4 recessed troffers with 2U lamps, and 250w to 400w Metal Halide Highbays.


For the Industrial fixtures, RLE installed 4L 8′ with low ballast, 2L 4′ industrial with low ballast, 2×2 recessed troffers with straight 17w lamps and normal ballast, and 2×4 recessed troffers with 2L 4′ industrial with low ballast. For the existing Metal Halide highbays, 4L T8 and 6L T8 Fluorescent Highbays were installed. 70-100 watts Metal Halide was replaced by 24W LED Canopies. Existing Par 38 Incandescent lighting in the Auditorium was replaced with PAR 38 LED.


RLE and Ameresco continue to be partners to achieve substantial energy savings and improved lighting.
