Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley, CA
Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley, CA is often mistaken for a luxury resort. Caring and skilled staff. Great location. Balcony view from every room. Specialty treatment. Lush landscaping. Superior quality. And highly rated.

Profile:

Memorial Medical Center has gained widespread recognition for its unique approach to health care. The organization has been identified as one of the top integrated systems in America (Verispan Top 100), a leading hospital organization for technology (Most Wired Hospitals), one of the best governed hospital systems in the U.S. (The Governance Institute) and for having the top leadership team in the country (HealthLeaders). In addition, all of our medical centers received the highest ranking in the Leapfrog National Quality Forum for Safe Practices.

Situation:

Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center’s further commitment to the community, the country and the environment sought the assistance of Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions to help the facility to reduce its energy usage while improving employee productivity through increased lighting levels. An additional benefit provided at the facility is, studies suggest, that patients can heal fast with access to improved lighting with a higher Color Rendering Index (CRI), which refers to more natural and outdoor lighting. This award winning facility, with a committed to greening its Medical Center, still relied on decades old lighting technology, which contributed to energy waste and cost inefficiencies.

  • • Earn rebate from Southern California Edison
  • • Record quantifiable year-over-year annual energy savings
  • • Reduction in Carbon Dioxide (CO2) harmful air emissions in the California
  • environment

Results:

Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions worked with Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center at their 100,000 square facility. The energy solutions company retrofitted the Medical Center’s outdated T12 fluorescent lamps by replacing them with energy efficient T8 Fluorescent lamps and electronic ballasts and Incandescent light bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s). This simple step resulted in a 40% -percent reduction in lighting energy from 1,801,964 kWh to only 1,078,664 kWh. In addition the Medical Center’s demand was reduced by 83 KW and reduced Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions by 867,900 pounds into the California environment.

“The improved lighting conditions enhance our quality of care and overall reputation as a firstclass hospital organization,” said Marcia Manker, chief executive officer, Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center.

 
 

HINES – SAN DIEGO'S GOLDEN EAGLE PLAZA
Hines – San Diego’s Golden Eagle Plaza Shrinks Carbon Footprint through Lighting Energy Savings Program from Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions.
This High Rise Office building in downtown San Diego reduces CO2 emissions by
nearly 950,054 pounds annually while gaining significant energy cost savings

Profile:

Owned and managed by Hines, Golden Eagle Plaza is a 421,000-square-foot office tower in the rapidly renewing downtown San Diego area. Built in 1969, and designed by the firm of Langdon and Wilson, Golden Eagle Plaza represents a classic design in the late International Style, with broad horizontal bands of exterior concrete punctuated by dark-tinted windows and strong exterior vertical elements. In addition to its strategic location, Golden Eagle Plaza includes more than 25,000 square feet of ground-level retail - making it an asset to tenants and neighbors alike.

Situation:

Hines 525 “B” Street LLC sought the assistance of Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions to help the Golden Eagle Plaza upgrade from their earlier energy efficient lighting projects by installing the newest 3rd generation T8 fluorescent lamps and energy efficient electronic ballasts, delamping using new specular white reflectors in reducing fluorescent lamps while increasing light levels along with installing occupancy sensors to reduce its energy usage all while improving worker productivity for the tenants who occupy offices.

Hines, the EPA's ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year in 2001, 2002 and 2003, as well as the recipient of the EPA's Sustained Excellence in Energy Management award in 2004, is proud to participate in the ENERGY STAR program, considering it an aid to leasing and a sound and responsible business decision.

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK
Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions, Inc., delivers significant energy savings to Yosemite National Park Lodging Facilities, and helps green up this historic national treasure.

California’s “green” light provider and Ecology Action’s LodgingSavers program teamed up to deliver an energy efficiency improvements and reduce the carbon footprint of the Wawona Hotel, Ahwahnee Hotel, Curry Village and the Yosemite Lodge At The Falls in Yosemite National Park.

Profile:

Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions Inc., California’s “green” light provider completed an energy saving upgrade of lodging facilities in Yosemite National Park as part of the LodgingSavers Program. Yosemite, one of the first wilderness parks designated as such in the United States, encompasses nearly 1,200 square miles, and is best known for its towering waterfalls, deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, and vast wilderness,. The park’s lodging facilities have joined the growing list of California “Green” lodging providers by reducing their energy use and eliminating the associated pollution from energy generation.

Situation:

Energy efficiency improvements at the four (4) combined lodging facilities resulted in direct annual energy savings of 686,010 kilowatt-hours (kWh), and an energy demand reduction of 171.04 kilowatts (KW) while saving the famed National Park facilities an estimated $112,213 in annual energy costs. This will prevent approximately 520,681 pounds of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), 10,976 pounds of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and 47,334 pounds of Nitrogen Oxide (NOX) annually from entering the environment.
Delaware North Companies (DNC), an authorized park concessionaire of the Wawona Hotel, Ahwahnee Hotel, Curry Village and the Yosemite Lodge At The Falls, assumed management of visitor services at Yosemite National Park in 1993, and has quickly become known in the industry for its innovative environmental practices and management style by making facility upgrades such as those provided by the LodgingSavers energy efficiency program.

Results:

Two of the most outstanding examples of cost-effective reductions in energy-use at the Yosemite facilities are the replacement of 3,191 incandescent lamps with new Energy Star rated Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s) and the installation of Vendmiser vending machine controls

“We installed new lighting in the lodging facilities using the latest advances in lighting technology and vending machine controls which use occupancy-based technology to reduce the power consumption of cold drink vending machines and snack machines by an average of 46%,” said Randy Parole, President, Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions. “The Energy Star Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s) and other fluorescent lighting measures we install as part of LodgingSavers improve the color of the lighting and reduce the electrical load by 60 percent. Apart from saving money and reducing pollution, the new energy efficient lighting also provides better illumination and reduces both heat and maintenance.”

Ecology Action administered the Yosemite National Park retrofit project through its LodgingSavers program. and selected Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions as the preferred retrofitting subcontractor. Ecology Action is a Santa Cruz, CA based nonprofit environmental consultancy founded in 1970 that delivers educational services, technical assistance and programs that enhance environmental quality. Funded by utility ratepayers under the auspices of the CPUC, Ecology Action’s LodgingSavers program helps lodging facilities reduce their energy use and increase their cash flow by providing rebated energy efficiency upgrades to their facilities.

“Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions is an ideal partner for our LodgingSavers program, said Michael Drury, Director of Energy Programs at Ecology Action. “Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions provide us with technical expertise, high-quality professional workmanship, and project installations completed with no surprises.”
