Brodewich Bray Elementary
TLC Integration used An energy savings study for a daylighting application at Bordewich Bray Elementary School (Carson City, Nevada). It was performed in order to apply for a NevadaSureBet customer rebate.
NevadaSureBet is a program sponsored by Nevada Power and Sierra Pacific Power and administered by KEMA. This program provided a cash rebate to the school upon evidence of energy demand and consumption savings obtained by installing the daylighting system throughout the school.
Daylighting is a state-of-the art technology using dome lenses and diffusers to transmit direct and ambient sunlight through a reflective light shaft to evenly illuminate an interior space. T-5 lamps are integrated into the daylighting modules to provide additional staged lighting when ambient natural lighting is insufficient or unavailable.
The daylighting retrofit at Bordewich Bray consisted of removing 223 original fixtures (192 x Peerless ENM3 332 277V GEB T8 and 31 x 2SP8 G 332 277V GEB T8 fixtures) and replacing them with 59 daylighting units (46 x passive 4×4’ units and 13 x passive 2×4’ units with integrated T-5s). This allowed sunlight to illuminate the classrooms and hallways during daylight hours, thus saving energy.
Furthermore, integrated staged lighting was connected to a control system that sensed lighting levels and occupancy to determine if and how much additional electric lighting was needed to maintain comfortable light levels.
