Using the Street and Parking Facility Lighting Retrofit Financial Analysis Tool

This August 22, 2013 webinar provided a guided walk-through of the Street and Parking Facility Lighting Retrofit Financial Analysis Tool. Developed by a partnership of the DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium, the Clinton Climate Initiative/C40, and the DOE Federal Energy Management Program, the Excel-based tool assists with the financial analysis of retrofitting street and parking facility lighting with more efficient alternatives. During the webinar, Doug Elliott of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory discussed how the tool can be used to evaluate costs and benefits associated with converting to more efficient street and parking facility lighting and how property owners, city and other government agencies, utilities, and energy efficiency organizations can use the tool to compute annualized energy and energy-cost savings, maintenance savings, greenhouse gas reductions, net present value, and simple payback associated with potential lighting upgrades.
