OCCUPANCY SENSOR COUPLED LED LIGHTING FOR COLD CASES AND EXTERIOR LOTS
This project examines performance parameters and effective use of controllable lightemitting diode (LED) component systems for commercial cold storage and exterior outdoor parking lots (pole and structure mounted). Currently, there is not a standard systems approach for presence sensor technology (occupants or transports/vehicles sensing) coupled to LED technology. Bundling these technologies, thereby creating a systems approach, has the potential for significant energy reduction for both environments. While these tests were concurrently performed on the same site, implementation of emerging technology LED lighting and occupancy sensor technology, as a package, has standalone value for both applications. If Southern California Edison (SCE) were to incentivize LED lighting with occupancy (motion sensor) controls as a system, such a system could be marketed and implemented at exterior sites as well as cold storage warehouse facilities, or sites with both functions. This systems approach also has potential with other industrial, commercial, and governmental environments exhibiting similar characteristics.
