Project Info COMPLETE Project Title

LED Surgical Lights

Project Number PGE 0902 Organization PG&E End-use Lighting Sector Commercial Project Year(s) 2009 - 2010

The high concentration of lights in Hospital ORs leads to a significant amount of heat generated in a small space.  The cooling load of the OR can often drive the cooling provided to the entire hospital, with a significant amount of reheat needed in other areas of the hospital.  Removing the heat from hospital ORs while improving lighting quality (and lifetime) can provide HVAC savings across the entire hospital. LED surgical lights would consume 54% of the energy required by halogens. Other significant benefits of the LED fixtures are an adjustable beam temperature (i.e. color), they are not subject to immediate burn out and the bulbs have a longer useful life.
