California-based Espen Technology, a leading manufacturer of indoor LED retrofit lighting products, has had a lighting retrofit project recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 2022 Integrated Lighting Campaign (ILC). The project retrofitted more than 10,000 LED fixtures and 8,000 Bluetooth-controlled devices in 9 schools in the Holt Public Schools District outside of Lansing, Michigan.

Espen’s important partners on this project were Avi-on (Bluetooth controls), Trane Technologies, Consumers Energy (electric utility providing a rebate), and the Electro-Matic Visual Inc. (contractor/installer). The Holt High School had 3,600+ Bluetooth devices installed, making it one of the largest single mesh networks in the world without a gateway. The retrofit project was recognized by the Integrated Lighting Campaign for its advanced use of sensors and controls.

The lighting controls were fully commissioned remotely, while students were in classes, without any disruption. The controls were pre-configured and pre-installed inside of lighting fixtures in order to drastically reduce the on-site labor required. The energy monitoring aspect allowed the project to qualify for top-tier utility rebates from Consumers Energy.

The ILC is a recognition and guidance program of the U.S. DOE, designed to help facility owners, operators, and managers save energy and money in their facilities. The ILC serves as a resource for relevant research regarding new advanced lighting controls and integrated lighting systems, the capabilities they enable, and the benefits observed in both lab environments and in the field. The ILC is documenting the adoption of integrated lighting systems, advanced sensors in lighting, and recognizing exemplary projects.
