As part of its sustainability plan, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has awarded a zero-cost, performance-based contract for the replacement of more than 13,000 parking garage light fixtures over the next year.The 10-year contract was awarded to Philips Electronics through a competitive, technology-neutral procurement that will be funded through the resulting $2 million in energy and maintenance savings annually, WMATA officials said in a press release. The contract calls for replacing outdated and inefficient lighting with new high-efficiency LED lighting that will create a brighter environment, use less electricity and lower energy costs, they said. Twenty-five parking facilities will receive the improved lighting."This high-efficiency LED lighting overhaul not only means increased safety and visibility for riders, but also a 68 percent reduction in energy consumption at these facilities," said WMATA General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Richard Sarles.The contract also covers the lighting system's maintenance, which will redirect an estimated $600,000 annually in labor and material resources to other system maintenance tasks, agency officials said.
